Gin: Everything You Need To Know, Thursday 28th May 2020


The gin revival shows no signs of slowing down, so join us to learn more about this beguiling spirit. We’ll start the evening off with a gin and tonic. After this, you learn more about the history of gin, from its origins as Genever and Old Tom to its (re)incarnation as anything from a light, delicately flavoured and floral spirit to a robust and spicy drink. We’ll end with a look at gin cocktails. To help you balance your spirits, we’ll also be serving homemade bar snacks. Hosted by Isabella Cameron, Fine Wine Specialist

Tutored Tastings

Tutored Tastings

We’re currently offering virtual events, but from August we are starting to take bookings again. We’ll be offering private dining for smaller gatherings and transforming our Napoleon Cellar into a restaurant, with separate tables for each group of guests. Find out more.

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.
