All Tasting Events Are Currently Suspended

Given the seriousness of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, we have suspended all currently scheduled events.

We have attempted to contact all customers who had booked for tastings in March / April / May. If you've not yet heard from us, please give us a call on 0141 258 8427 or drop us a line ( ).

Tastings are a big part of what we do, and we know that you, our customers, also enjoy them, but until the official advice says otherwise this is the best course of action. Everyone, stay safe, and WASH YOUR HANDS.

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:
