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:
