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:

July

Rum Tasting - Friday 19th July - SOLD OUT

We always used to advertise our rum tastings by saying, "We're off to the Caribbean once more", but these days we seem to have new rum distillers popping up all over the place. Wherever they come from, you can be sure we only stock the tasty ones, so why not join us to sample six of our best. We'll also welcome you to the event with a delicious rum cocktail.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

West End Sparkling Wine Tasting - Sunday 21st July

Tickets £25 in advance. 2-4pm at Llicorella Deli, 23 Clarence Drive, Glasgow, G12 9QN.

West End Whisky Tasting - Thursday 25th July

Join us as we sample six top notch drams chosen from the wide range of single casks, independent bottlings, and limited releases that we stock. Great drams, great company, top quality chat.

August

Port Askaig Whisky Tasting - Thursday 1st August - SOLD OUT

We're delighted to welcome our good friend Julie Hamilton to the shop to present a selection of fine drams bottled under the Port Askaig label. Port Askaig, of course, means Islay, so you can expect more than a smidgen of peat. For this event you 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.

Hair Of The Dog Tasting - Sunday 4th August

Dogs are very welcome at this Sunday afternoon dog-friendly event. If you've been along to previous events you'll know to expect excruciating canine puns, some barking, and most importantly a selection of delicious drinks. When booking this event please be sure to inform us if you are bringing a canine companion. (and how many!)
Tickets £25 in advance. 2-4pm at 23 Bath Street.

Gin Tasting - Friday 9th August

There's no particular theme to this month's gin tasting; except of course, Juniper. Join us to sample six fine gins selected from our recent new arrivals and staff favourites. And, as always, we'll welcome you to the event with a gin cocktail. 
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

Tequila & Mezcal Tasting - Saturday 10th August

From such unpromising beginnings—agave might be related to aloe, but it looks awfully like a tough desert cactus—come some of the finest distilled spirits in the world. Join us to sample six tequilas and mezcals (and not forgetting the welcome cocktail we'll dream up for the event).
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

Whisky Tasting - Friday 23rd August

This is our regular whisky tasting event where we select six whiskies from across Scotland, chosen from recent new releases and the latest arrivals from the independent bottlers. A wonderful way to decide what your next bottle should be.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

Summer Wines Tasting - Sunday 25th August

For this event we'll be picking out eight diverse wines from our range at 105 West Nile Street. We'll be looking at refreshing whites, holiday rosés, and summery reds from every corner of the grape growing world. Please note this is an afternoon event.
Tickets £20 in advance. 2-4pm at 23 Bath Street.

The Good Cocktail Club - Saturday 31st August

We finish off the month with our popular Cocktail Club. If you've not yet taken the plunge, here's what to expect. We devise three cocktails, which can be variations on old established classics or something entirely new. After testing them to perfection, we demonstrate the making them, and then you enjoy drinking them. You'll also sample some of the ingredients used in the drinks, and we'll talk about how you can use them yourself at home.
Tickets £30 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.
