Study your spirits in style

Dry out of ideas for birthday presents? Farewells? Celebrations? Just general weekday nights out? We’ve got just the thing in mind for you then. Once a fortnight, Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings will be hosting boozy evenings replete with spirit tasting and exploration. For the summer series of ‘The Handbook’, B&H have called upon respected industry doyens to spill the drinks beans about the distinctive flavours and fascinating backgrounds of their respective drinks. From the likes of artisan Cyder to Italian Grappa, it makes for an interesting Tuesday evening — and surely beats any episode of Strictly Come Dancing.

Guests will be commence the evening by stepping into the brand new B&H kitchen for a shrewd tasting, then proceed to the atmospheric subterranean club room Below & Hidden for cocktail making, before finally returning to the airy bar and restaurant area for boozy contemplation over dinner if they so wish.

Long gone are the days at University sitting in boring lectures and tutorials— this type of learning comes with the perks of not only gaining a deeper knowledge of the studied spirits, but you get to have a few tipples in between. Sounds fine to us.

  • Spirit of Martinique – Trois Rivieres – 24th May 2016
