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:

January

French Wine Tasting - Thursday 30th January

The variety of grapes, styles, and flavours in French wine can be bewilderingly complex, and in a tasting of eight wines we can barely scratch the surface - but we're going to try anyway.

February

The Good Cocktail Club - Saturday 1st February - SOLD OUT

Controversially, cocktail club falls on the first Saturday of the month for a change. But never fear, everything else will stick to our well-established pattern: three delicious mixed drinks, skilful demonstrations of how to to mix them, and a selection of four interesting cocktail ingredients to sample.

Old & Rare Whisky Tasting - Friday 7th February

Our sales pitch for this one is, “Try some drams you can’t buy”, which might seem a bit daft, given that we’re a shop. On the other hand, these drams are liquid history, and fascinating to taste. Angus MacRaild returns to present a selection of long lost whiskies and talk about the history of Scotch.
Tickets £45 in advance (plus £1.50 booking fee for card payments). 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

Bourbon Tasting - Saturday 8th February

There are now something like 2000 American whiskey distilleries. Sadly we won’t be able to taste our way round them all, but we will have six fine trans-Atlantic drams for you to sample.

Unicorn Spirits - Friday 14th February

The working title for this tasting was “The Weird Stuff”, but we figured that “Unicorn Spirits” sounds more exciting, and of course is much more social media friendly (soooo many GIFs). Join us to taste six hard to categorise, unusual, or just plain out-there distillates.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street. Click here to buy tickets

Gin Tasting - Saturday 15th February

These days it feels like there are more gin botanicals than gin drinkers, and nearly every gin producer likes to include something unique and local in their recipe. We’ll be sampling six gins, so that’s probably another two dozen botanicals to add to the list. And as always at our gin tastings, we’ll welcome you to the event with a delicious cocktail.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street. Click here to buy tickets

Spanish Wine Tasting - Sunday 16th February

From Galicia in the North-West, to Rioja, to Penedes, to Valencia and Murcia in the South-East, we’ll be touring the wine regions of Spain whilst tasting eight different wines. Please note this is an afternoon event.
Tickets £25 in advance. 2-4pm at 23 Bath Street. Click here to buy tickets
