Welcome to the 2021 way of drinking and welcome to OOFT! Launching March 2021, OOFT! has been created as the one and only platform that embraces how to make the most of Drinking In, as well as Drinking Out. We attended the “virtual” launch and it was very fascinating how the drinks industry is thriving and adapting despite the challenges the last year has created.
Due to Covid 19, drinking culture has changed forever. OOFT! recognizes this as is the continually evolving one stop place where you can be inspired & search for a cocktail recipe, see what’s happening in your favourite bars, discover how to get a decent cocktail delivered, or even just to find the perfect spirituous gift for someone…
OOFT! is every imbiber’s path to the discovery of delicious liquids, tastes and flavours from the world of beers, wines and spirits and dreams of a world where everyone has the confidence to make delicious cocktails at home, and to explore what else is out there. They take pleasure in the joy and playfulness of mixed drinks… and drinks that taste seriously good.
This is the virtual palace to come for your drinking pleasure. You’ll find how-to-make recipe videos, cocktail making kits, masterclasses, events, articles and advice from all corners of hospitality that are focused on enhancing the at home – or out out drinking experience.
With navigational ease, OOFT! will ensure that you glide through the site as if an intuitive bartender or sommelier has taken you by the hand or a shop assistant is in your front room.
On OOFT! you’ll find;
The latest in cocktail trends — whether that’s recipe tutorials, interviews, or how-to guides — either shot on high-performance video, imagery or written articles – all with a style that is punchy, fun, and unintimidating.
You can sign up for online events like cocktail, wine, beer or spirit masterclasses with places such TT Liquor (the UK’s most popular virtual and live masterclass venue), check out video-recorded guides, login to face-to-face sessions or take accredited training courses with partners such as WSET or Mixology Events.
You can order cocktail delivery, DIY cocktail making kits, ready-to-drink bottled cocktails, subscription boxes, cocktail ingredients or gifts and even branded merchandise from some of the world’s best and coolest bars and alcohol brands.
