Calling all Gin fans! This is the tasting for you! We all love a good Gin and Tonic, but how much do you know about different Gin styles? As a drink that was pretty much developed in London, we have lots of local styles, from small batch artisanal offerings to large scale well known brands. Over the 2 hour course we will find out what makes a Gin, what is the difference between all the styles and the imapct of mixing it with tonic. We will try 6 different Gins and there will also be some tasty canapes to go with. Tickets are £30.
Join in for an evening experiencing two of France’s most prestigious wine regions. From the beautiful Loire valley we get some of France’s greatest Sauvignon Blanc white wines, including delicate and crisp Sancerre, and from Burgundy the greatest Chardonnay, as well as silky and delicate Pinot Noir. We will explore the range of styles produced in these areas, from some of the more simple offerings, to complex fine wines. France has always had a reputation for producing some of the best wines in the world, and on this night you will have the opportunity to see if you agree! Tickets are £27
Our first event in Beckenham in 2019 and as such it is only right it should be an evening of wine tasting decadence! This 2 hour evening tasting is all about celebrating some of the world's very best sparkling wines. We all know about the glorious wines of Champagne (and we'll be reminding ourselves with at least two this evening...!), but there are some truly amazing sparklers from just about every corner of the wine producing world. So we'll try a variety of wines from around the world such as the ever popular and eminently glubbable, peachy Prosecco alongside a top-notch vintage Cava, and a New World Champagne lookalike that will give many of its more illustrious French compatriots a run for their money! We'll compare these with a sparkling wine from the South of England, an area that's building a serious reputation for itself on the international stage. And to finish off we've got something a bit more unusual - a red sparkling wine! This is an evening of celebration, with some fabulous wines and to help you relax. What's included? A tutored tasting of 6 top quality sparkling wines including 2 Champagnes Nibbles to match the wines Learn all about how sparkling wines are made and why Champagne is so special Full tasting notes and tips on where to get the best bubbly deals Professional ISO tasting glasses
On the first of two evenings exploring the diversity of Spanish wines we will be looking at the Eastern and Central parts of Spain. Here we're going to start the evening with some Cava, Spain's answer to Champagne! A sparkling wine which may have been overshadowed of late but we've got an excellent example to start with. We'll also look at some white and red wines from the lesser known regions that extend along the Mediterranean coast, including some aromatic whites and intensely flavoured reds. We'll finish up with a wine from Priorat, one of Spain's better kept secrets when it comes to big juicy red wines! The tasting will include at least six samples,with some nibbles to match, tasting sheet, ISO glasses and expert tutor.
