Come with us above the clouds to rediscover the thrill of flying – and if you’re one of our Flying Club members you can win a fantastic trip to New York for an exclusive mixology class at the award winning NYC bar Employees Only. Not a member? Not a problem – it only takes a couple of minutes to sign up.

Uncover the magic behind all our sophisticated cocktails and mocktails, and join bartender Aaron at our Cloud 9 cocktail bar as he reveals the secrets behind three of our most popular cocktails. We’re very proud of our Clubhouse and onboard cocktail menu, which features some of the finest spirits in the world including the Ryan Reynolds-owned Aviation Gin.

And if you don’t drink, or would simply prefer a non-alcoholic beverage, you can still enjoy a beautifully crafted cocktail made with Seedlip, the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit. This gamechanger offers an aromatic mix of botanical flavours and delivers something just as considered and enjoyable as the most innovative alcoholic cocktail.

More of a wine drinker? You’ll always be able to enjoy specially selected wines onboard any Virgin Atlantic flight, with a list that’s been been curated in collaboration with Master of Wine Mark Pardoe of Berry Bros. & Rudd. Established in the 17th century, Berry Bros. & Rudd Ltd is the oldest wine and spirit merchant in the country and with 6 out of the world’s 380 Masters of Wine working for them, they really do know their grapes.

And don’t forget, if you’re flying in Upper Class with us soon, you’ll get to experience our new menus created by Donal Skehan.

Hop over to Cloud 9 now to enter our fantastic mixology class in NYC competition and download recipes for three of our best-loved cocktails.
