An experimental new experience from The Society of Cocktails. A Drink with Mother.Join us for this strange exploration into the fungal, the technological and the human. The Society are inviting audiences to visit their new residency space in the Lanes at Rybka. A Drink with Mother is a story-based tasting course of cocktails - each one an exploration into fermentation, heightened presentation and unusual technologies.

Experts in immersive dining and storytelling; The Society of Cocktails have explored the uncanny and in this 60 minute art-speakeasy. You can expect an encounter with ‘Mother’ - a fungal, cordycepal entity, designed in collaboration with, and voiced by Artifical Intelligence.

You’ll taste 4 strange creations - each entirely original and an extension of the story - like the Shitake Martinez, a smooth and umami reinvented classic and  Bloomed Mastic Confit; a sweet resinous experience that allows you to temporarily telepathically communicate with Mother.
