Here at indie spirit we’re like, really smart, so smart in fact, that we thought we’d give you something to look forward to. Allow us to set the scene; the sky is grey and nights are chilly, having woken up on the first of January hangover free, because you are a responsible adult, you’ve decided to buck the trend and see what the beautiful, bountiful year that is 2018 can do for you. Eagerly you check your favourite local booze shop to see if there’re any events to distract you from your co-workers bad chat about gyms, salads and clean living.
A short run down of the current upcoming events:
Spend an afternoon with a certified Cicerone trying some great beers, and then some terrible ones. Learn about Diacetyl, Lightstruck, Metallic and more. And for only £15 cheaper than the pub. Only a few tickets remain so book quickly
Join us in celebrating the life of the Bard himself with an evening for tasting whiskies but distinctly lacking in haggis and kilts. This night you will have the pleasure of a familiar, slightly less disgruntled, face doing your tasting, with the shop manager Laurence taking the lead. At the time of writing there are only a few tickets left so book now or forever hold your peace.
Like the first one, but with more explosions and hosted by the oh so chatty Chris Scullion. Unfortunately at the time of writing this event is already sold out.
Placed conveniently on the first Friday after dry January this is a cheeky round up of our favourite Gins from the winter season, and maybe a few new ones too, this tasting of the oh-so hip spirit is always popular
A Wild Turkey Bourbon tasting headed by none other than Sam Kershaw Wild Turkey UK’s brand ambassador and, according to one young lady, the maker of “the best gibson I’ve had in my life”. It’s sure to be a hoot (or a gobble). Expect chat about mashbills and new American oak in between drinking great whiskies.
Timed just after a large chunk of new releases comes out this promises to be one of the more delicious this year, expect fresh lively drams juxtaposed to some heavier, meatier whiskies. And with it being the birthday of Ron Perlman we had to do something special…
An event created for two reasons:
One – to try some of the best gins coming out just in time for summer and prime gin drinking season.
Two – To continue to pursue terrible drink based puns.
But in all seriousness with the fast moving world of Gin as it stands, almost a necessity.
What a perfectly formed series of events, and with more to be added throughout the next couple of months it’s looking distinctly like it’s going to be a great 2018 afterall.
