The Spirit of Smoke, Thursday 7th November 2019


If you can’t resist the lingering scent of an autumnal bonfire, then this evening is for you. While it is one of the oldest ways of preserving food, “smoking” is a trend featuring more frequently on menus across the land, not just influencing savoury foods but also extending to our drinks and desserts too. Come and discover how this versatile flavour can add richness and depth to even the simplest of ingredients. Over the evening you will be guided through a range of whiskies and mezcals, by whisky ambassador Stefanie Holt and agave ambassador Gabriela Moncada, exploring their production and maturation. Our Head Chef Stewart Turner will produce three smoky mini dishes to match with the spirits. Hosted by Barbara Drew MW, Wine & Spirits Education Specialist
Dress code: smart casual
NB Spirits for this event will be chosen from the Berry Bros. & Rudd and the producer’s stocks at the time of the event and may not be available to order afterwards.

Tutored Tastings

Tutored Tastings

Unfortunately, we have postponed all events until the end of April. We are constantly reassessing the situation and considering the feasibility of events after this date. For more information, please contact

Treat yourself, your family or a client to one of our exclusive tutored or walkaround wine tastings. One of our experts will guide you through a range of wines while educating you on the evening’s topic. From blind tastings to producer focusses, these are unmissable chances to broaden your wine knowledge.

At our walkaround tastings, a selection of fascinating wines will be set out for you to explore, with an expert on hand to elucidate on the evening’s theme.

The Napoleon Cellar and the Pickering Cellar provide the perfect venues for your tutored wine tastings.

Sussex cellar is our newest event space with terracotta archways and intimate yet contemporary feel. Design influences hail from Spanish wine cellars or Bodegas, and use handmade London tiles to create archways and columns that extend through both the mezzanine and the sub-basement level of the cellars.
