What Is It?

Maison Bisquit will offer its guests the opportunity to enjoy cognac in a variety of different ways including long drinks, neats and bespoke cocktails that have been developed exclusively for this limited time period. These cocktails are a twist on classic flavours and include the Chocolate and Orange Sidecar, the Blueberry Sour, the Unique Cést Chic, the Marshmallow Alex and The Maison – all of which are sure to tantalise your taste buds!

In addition, exclusive cocktails inspired by the three #BisquitCreator partnerships will be released each week:

1. Cassandra Twala is a creator with intention. From her work as producer of the Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair and Winter Sculpture Fair, Cassandra is known for her considered approach to aesthetics and a dedication to excellence in her craft.
2. Qhama Xhali, better known to his friends and followers as Clixwell, is a content creator extraordinaire. When he’s not presenting SABC3’s #TheManCave, Clix and his friends are exploring everything South Africa has to offer.
3. Menzi Mcunu is an Afrocentric Gentleman known for his carefully curated lifestyle and consistently dapper outfits. This tastemaker has done everything from creating made-to-measure suits, to style consulting, brand partnerships and event curation.
An exciting tapas-style menu has been developed by well-known cook and current MKR SA contestant Luyanda Mafanya. From salmon, pate and carpaccio to frangipane tarts and macarons, these meals are a delightful accompaniment to any cocktail or long drink you choose to enjoy at Maison Bisquit.

Many people believe that Cognac should be enjoyed neat with a few ice cubes and consider mixing it with other beverages a sin! However, this view could not be further from the truth. The use of Cognac in cocktails goes back as far as the early 1800’s when the cocktail was invented - it was known as a “barman’s best friend”. These new cocktail recipes will demonstrate the versatility and taste profile of Bisquit Cognac in a delicious, exciting manner. Because everything is #BetterWithBisquit.

Brrr - Winter's Here!

Date: Friday, 21 June 2019 at 14:30 - 16:30

Let's get creative this winter and craft the cold away at this amazing event. Bring the kids and whole family or even maybe your friends who are into crafts. Those hands won't be freezing because there is plenty to do around the city. The Brr - Winter's event is just something all of us should attend. See you there!

Take To The Avalanche Slope

For skiing, bum-boarding, snowboarding and tubing, minus the freezing temperatures and slushy snow, make sure you head to Avalanche, situated at Cedar Square in Fourways. Visitors of all ages will have a blast sliding down their 65m ski slope, and you can even take a few skiing or snowboarding lessons if you're planning a visit to the Alps anytime soon. Avalanche is open every day from 08:30 until late and sometimes hosts special events in the evenings. The facility also offers a kids' jungle gym and activity centre, a restaurant filled with snacks and good food and expert ski instructors. Call ahead to find out about availability, specials, events and more.

Snowy Activities

Visit The Ice Rink!

Winter activities are not complete without a visit to an ice rink. While there are rinks all over the city, the most popular one in Joburg has to be the Northgate Ice Rink. Plus, they're offering a winter holiday club for the kids during the winter school holidays, as well as half-price Tuesday nights, Family Day Sundays and more. Keep an eye out on their Facebook page for upcoming events, specials and more.

Take Skiing Lessons @ The Ski Deck

You don't need snow to learn how to ski, bum-board or snowboard – all you need are experienced instructors, 20-40m of ski slope, patience and the Ski Deck in Ferndale. They've been around for years and offer the opportunity for all ages to learn how to ski. Choose from casual bum-boarding from R100* per person (two-hour session), skiing lessons from R1 140* per person (three lessons) or lessons with their fully computerised ski and snowboard simulator, The Sky Tek® Power Carver (from R2 450* for six lessons, by appointment only).

Enjoy Sweet Sounds This Winter Season

Date: Wednesday, 12 June 2019 - Thursday, 13 June 2019

When is it ever a bad idea to enjoy amazing classical musical sounds? Never, right! And we think is exactly what you will enjoy this winter, warming up your soul with incredible music. Equally at home in the opera pit, Moody began his career as apprentice conductor for the Landestheater Opera in Linza, Austria. So you know your ears are in safe hands, because violinist Ye-Eun Choi is defined by her dynamic sound, rich with vibrant timbre and sensitive nuance. Her colourful, expressive lyricism and virtuosity has earned her acclaim for her engagements as both a soloist and a chamber musician.

Enjoy Sweet Sounds This Winter Season

Warm Up by the Fire at Churchills Bar

When we think of a snowy winter, we think of stepping into a British pub, grabbing a pint, heading to the fireplace and warming up after being out in the cold a tad too long. If that's also your vibe, Churchills Bar at Melrose Arch is just the place to experience it without spending a fortune on a ticket to London. Just imagine sinking onto one of their stuffed leather sofas, warming yourself by the fire with a whisky in your right hand and a cigar in your left. Sounds about right! They have a varied list of cognacs and cigars for you to choose from and, as for food, they do a scrumptious fish and chips.
