Upcoming Tastings

Scotland vs. Ireland Whisky Tasting
Wednesday 1st May, 7.00pm

We are launching ‘In The Spirit’ with a whisky tasting showdown between two whisky producing heavyweights - Scotland and Ireland. Over the course of six drams we'll explore the similarities and differences between the whiskies from each country. Who will come out on top?

Gin Tasting
Wednesday 5th June, 7.00pm

Gin is still the hottest spirit in town and we’ll be celebrating all thing juniper just a few days before World Gin Day. Rather than featuring the usual suspects, we’ll taste a range or harder-to-find gins from around the world. We’ll also learn to make a gin cocktail that you can wow your friends with over the summer!

American Whiskey Tasting
Wednesday 3rd July, 7.00pm

On the eve of American’s celebrate their Independence Day, we’ll raise a glass or five of their fantastic whiskies. Joel will share some stories of American whiskey’s wild colonial past while we explore the different styles of whiskey produced in the USA. By the end you’ll know your bourbons from your malts and rye!
