Drinks Tastings Launch!

For those of you who have good memories you may recall we ran a series of online tastings throughout lockdown with some fantastic producers such as Staffordshire Distillery, Stonewall Gin and Burning Barn. These tastings included a guided tasting by yours truly along with the owners, distillers and blenders of the companies we worked with.

While the online tastings were great fun, we are really excited to announce that we can now offer in-person drinks tastings! Available to book online they are the perfect way to learn more about your favourite tipple in an interactive and fun way that everyone will enjoy. These tastings will be hosted in the beautiful Courtyard at Middleton Hall and with the drinks flowing and some delicious nibbles to match, it will be an unforgettable evening.

There are a range of tasting options to choose from with a minimum of 6 people and a recommended maximum of 10. They are perfect for groups of friends, hen and stag dos or even an office party! Bookings can be made online or you can contact us via email, social media or give us a call to arrange or discuss further. 

From gin to beer, explore more about the drinks tasting packages we offer:
