"Inspired by classic cocktail bartending, The Swordmaker is an opportunity to experience the wonder of a classic cocktail bar, designed around you, at your very own special occasion. Being totally mobile and with the option to choose a totally hand crafted, bespoke menu, your time at The Swordmaker, will be unique…"

The Swordmaker Premium Events Cocktail Bar, will be suitable for events such as Weddings / Special Occasions / Corporate Events / Festivals / Birthdays etc.

My work experience in events and cocktail bartending is impressive and varied. I started work at Slaley hall, Northumberland, for hundreds of weddings, then moved behind the cocktail bar in hotels, had the role of head bartender of a hospitality group in New Zealand, boasting busy classic, speakeasy cocktail bars, where I was trusted with menu changes and the management of the bar etiquette. I became supervisor of a busy three bar venue in the centre of Newcastle, which offered cocktail training, classes and more. My most recent employer was a local independant coffee roastery named "Ouseburn Coffee Company", where I held the role of training manager / brand ambassador.

'The Swordmaker' is a new business, launched officially in November of 2019, but behind it, is years of experience in the hospitality sector.

If you book 'The Swordmaker', not only will you receive high quality drinks served from a beautiful pop up bar, but will also have the pleasure of dealing with extremely friendly and understanding customer service. I pride myself on producing work to be proud of and with the highest of standards, set in mind, I can guarantee that 'The Swordmaker' will be the perfect asset to your event.

"Josh held a private party for us and it was amazing, he kept everyone’s drinks flowing and it gave a really good vibe to the night.

His cocktail making is second to none, good variety and made it a good night overall."

In August 2018 we had The Swordmaker at our wedding celebration garden party. It was great theatre and guests loved Josh's cocktails. Sarah & Max
