Gin Tastings in the Peak District

During our gin tastings we present 6 gins from around the UK. We are passionate about quality gins. We select gins that are distilled properly, where the distillers are authentic and have integrity, and above all, we select gins that we love because of their provenance and their ability to demonstrate placeness.

We taste the 6 gins neat in the first instance, so that we can compare and contrast each of the spirits. We then mix the perfect serve G&T with tonic and garnishes as suggested by each distiller. Our tastings are all about the gin. We encourage guests to mix classic gin and tonics, we’re not making gin cocktails.

During the tasting I talk about the history of gin production and also explain exactly how gin makes the special journey from field to glass. Space permitting I often give a virtual tour of a distillery in order to explain the process.

Private Whisky Tastings in York

Nobody in York can offer such authentic whisky tastings as we do. We’ve worked in the whisky industry for many years. David was Distillery Manager at one of the largest malt whisky distilleries in Scotland, the mighty Caol Ila Distillery on the windswept and beautiful Isle of Islay. He’s lucky enough to have been given the responsibility of choosing whisky for limited edition bottlings and before moving to Islay regularly bottled his own single casks.

Our competitors hosting whisky tastings are brand ambassadors or sales representatives and whilst their events are engaging, they cannot offer the authenticity that we do, given our experience at the coal face of whisky production.
