Pappy Van Winkle Tasting
Join us on Thursday, November 28th, as we embark on a very special guided tasting of the exalted and oh-so-elusive Pappy Van Winkle range.
As you bourbon aficionados are no doubt already aware, simply getting your hands on one expression of this much-celebrated dram is a challenge in and of itself – often requiring plucky whisky wanderers to scour the darkest reaches of the internet, and boldly traverse land and sea just to get their hands on the stuff.
Now, we’re offering you an unparalleled once-in-a-lifetime chance to treat your tastebuds to five aged expressions of the fabled family – from the exuberant 10-year old, through the 12 year, 15 year, and 20 year varieties, all the way to the 23-year aged grandpappy itself – all in one place.
Over the course of the tasting, our resident drinks experts will impart pearls of wisdom on each liquid as you imbibe, providing tasting notes while also revealing some fascinating insights into the twisting history of the brand, and how it came to produce some of the world’s finest bourbon, along the way.
There’ll be two separate one-hour sittings on the evening itself – one at 7:00pm and one at 8:30pm – of just fifteen lucky guests apiece, ensuring that there’ll be a fittingly intimate atmosphere for such a one-off occasion.
So if this sounds right up your street, grab your tickets for £80pp today below.

Arrival: Guests will be greeted at the doors of our specialist liquor store on Kingsland Road by their host for the evening. We advise attendees to arrive around 15 minutes before the scheduled start of their sitting, allowing ample time to collect any drinks from the bar or browse the shelves of our store.

Afters: Your guided tasting will last for one hour, and all attendees are more than welcome to head down to our Cellar Bar to continue their evening at the end of their sitting. Reservations are recommended, although not mandatory.
