Having spent a number of years catering for cocktail parties, product launches, large and small-scale corporate events and more, Reynolds Corporate & Cocktail was forced to devise new ways to drive sales when the Covid-19 outbreak struck.
We caught up with founder Chris Reynolds. Take a look at how he got on with our round of questions below…
It’s the end of your shift – what do you pour yourself?
A very strong coffee!
Most unusual drink you’ve ever tried?
Before I started cocktail training I made some pretty unmentionable concoctions. They still give me shivers to this day…
What would the theme song to your average shift be?
As I’m working from home at the moment, I’m happy as long as it’s not Peppa Pig.
What’s in your drinks cabinet at home?
There is a lot of everything, to be quite honest, but the vast majority is port and rum.
Best food and drink pairing?
I’ve got to keep it Scottish and say haggis and whisky. We do so many events where people ask for haggis bon bons with a whisky sauce – it’s a best seller.
If you were stuck on a desert island, what three drinks would be there with you?
My absolute favourite cocktail is the classic bramble, so that would be a must. And I dare say a few margaritas and rum old-fashioneds wouldn’t go amiss as well.
You have to make a drink to represent Aberdeen. What would that be?
Can you put a rowie in a cocktail? If so, it would be a drink based on that.reynolds corporate & cocktail
