Gin Tasting

“Nothing is more pleasurable than to sit in the shade, sip gin and contemplate other people’s adulteries, and while the wormy apple of marriage still lives, the novel will not die.” – John Skow

We are excited to start our Summer of Spirits off with a gin tasting! With the hot weather we’ve been having, what’s better than sitting outside, enjoying the sunshine, with a gin & tonic in your hand? We’re looking forward to doing just that, with our first outdoor tasting.

Gin, at its most basic level, is a spirit flavoured with juniper. This well-loved summer spirit is far more than just basic, with many exciting combinations of flavours that we will explore with you.

Our tasting will take place on the Fellow’s Garden at Christ College at 4.30-8pm on 7 August, with the Mountbatten Room as a wet weather fallback. Continue reading “Gin Tasting”

Spirits of Mexico

“There is a great independence, and a confident immunity to risk, in all drinks made out of cactus.”  – Alan LeMay

Our second tasting in the Summer of Spirits line-up will be a tequila/mezcal tasting. Both are distilled beverages made from the agave plant, and both are delicious. Alan, our wonderful treasurer, will lead us through a mix of 6 tequilas and mezcals to introduce you to the great tastes they have to offer.

This tasting will take place at NOVI (2nd floor) at 8pm on the 26th of August. Continue reading “Spirits of Mexico”
