Tasting Events

Our whisky events are often booked to capacity the second we announce them. As such, we have added these additional events to our calendar this year.

You can enquire about each event using the form at the bottom of the page, or by calling us on 01756 700886.

Our in-store wine tastings are free – there’s no booking required, however once the wine is gone – it’s gone! (So come earlier rather than later in the day!!).
