Taste, don't just drink!

We believe in trying new things and learning about them. What better way to do so than having a tasting with us, some quality libations and other likeminded souls?

It's about broadening horizons and quality, not quantity; drinking less but drinking better.

Our purpose-built tasting room can accommodate up to 30 people for our regular tasting nights as well as ad-hoc tastings for private groups. We can cater for hen and stag parties, birthdays, corporate gatherings and general events. We can also come to your office or workspace. We have run large-scale tastings and classes for up to 300 people at venues such as the Lighthouse and Kelvingrove Art Gallery.

Please get in touch for more information:

September

Gin Tasting: SCO vs ENG - Friday 20th September

This is going to be a bit of a grudge match - the last Scotland versus England gin tasting we put on was very a very close run thing. Join us for the first of a series of show downs between the gin producing countries of the world. Taste six gins, cast your vote, and may the best botanicals win.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

Natural Wine Tasting - Friday 27th September

Natural wine is such a hot topic at the moment that we're putting on our second natural tasting of the year. Join us as we sample eight low intervention, low or zero sulphite, wild fermented wines from around the world.
Tickets £20 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

The Good Cocktail Club - Saturday 28th September

If it's the last Saturday of the month it must be Cocktail Club; a chance to sample some fascinating and delicious cocktail ingredients and to enjoy three mixed drinks devised for the evening by our expert mixologists.

October

Arran Whisky Tasting - Thursday 3rd October - SOLD OUT

For this event your ticket can be redeemed as a voucher against the purchase of any whisky tasted on the night.
Tickets £15 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

Whisky Tasting - Friday 11th October

There are so many new whiskies on the shelves every month — prestigious releases from the big brands, obscure single casks from small independent bottlers — that it can be hard to know what to buy. Fear not, we're here to help! With our own monthly whisky tasting we select six of the most interesting new releases on our shelves, talk about the stories behind the labels, and help you decide what your next favourite dram might be.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

Continental Gin Tasting - Saturday 12th October

After the Scotland vs England showdown in September we though we'd take a break from the competitive side of things and enjoy a tour of Europe. We'll be sampling six superb continental gins, talking about European gin culture, and of course we'll have a tasty gin cocktail ready and waiting for you to get the evening off to a great start.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

Cider Tasting - Friday 18th October

2019 has been quite a year for us on the cider front, with not one but two new Scottish producers on our shelves, and a whole host of interesting bottles appearing from south of the border. Join us as we taste our way through a selection of ten different ciders from our range and explore where cider is heading in Scotland and across the world.
Tickets £20 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

Sparkling Wine Tasting - Saturday 19th October

It's a long-proven scientific fact that bubbles enhance the flavour of wine. But who needs science when we can do a taste test with six of the best on our shelves? We'll also be rigorously testing the theory that fizz in the afternoon is the tastiest fizz of them all.
Tickets £25 in advance. 2-4pm at 23 Bath Street.
