Late Alternative Burns Night February 8th

Late Alternative Burns Night February 8th

  

Join us for a Late & Exclusive Alternative Burns Night!

 

Burns Night is a massive whisky evening, full of toasts, banter, a celebration of the man, his poetry and all things Scottish. It’s a fantastic way to brighten the drudgery of Winter.

Why Late: Did you know Burns Nights were originally held in July? Scotland’s famous Bard is celebrated across the World, and not always in January! So February 8th it is for us!… Which also means we won’t be tempting you to breaking ‘Dry January’ 😊

Why Alternative: ‘Alternative’ because there will be no pipers, kilts or black ties, and we’ll be forgoing some of the ceremony. Yes there will be tatties, neeps, whisky and even haggis, as Burns will be our celebrated theme. The menu is below.

The ‘Exclusive’ Night: A blind four dram tasting that the whisky loving Bard would be proud of. What’s more, we have a dram that you won’t be able to taste anywhere else in the World – it doesn’t get more exclusive than that! The tasting will be followed by a Burns and Scottish themed 3 course supper. Arrive 6.30pm to 6.45pm to start at 7.00pm. £95 per person CLICK HERE TO BOOK

The Venue: We have taken you to some great venues, but never to a place designed for education, dedicated to schooling you in whisky. We have a private space at The Melody – St. Paul’s Hotel – which also has a bar with an extensive range for you to explore before and after, if you choose to. The Melody – St. Paul’s Hotel, 153 Hammersmith Road, Hammersmith, London W14 0QL.

We have organised a special room rate for you £99 B&B – email marios@stpaulhotel.co.uk directly, quoting “Alternative Burns Night.”  

Supper is a 3 course meal:

Starter: Haggis & Black Pudding Scotch Egg with Apple & Ginger Chutney

Main: Slow Cooked Aberdeen Angus Beef Short Rib with Bashed Neeps, Tatties & Roasting Juices

Dessert: Raspberry & Honey Shortbread with Whisky Cream & Oats

£95 per person. Book your seats now.

Beer & Whisky with Natalya and Paul – November 24th

Beer & Whisky with Natalya and Paul – November 24th

 

Join us for a blind Beer and Whisky tasting.

Beer and Whisky! Worlds apart, right? Well, no.

 

THIS TASTING IS FULLY BOOKED

BOOKINGS ARE NO LONGER BEING EXCEPTED

 

I always try to give you more at Whisky Drams tastings. Who else gives you award-winning cheese, truffles from a top 10 chocolatier and drams that don’t usually get opened, as well as challenging what you think you know. We’ve been to Marco’s, Members Clubs and Private Rooftop. We plan to continue along that vein: Beer & Whisky will be a presentation of excellent Beer and exceptional Whisky.

A strange combination? Maybe not!… They both have ancient monks to thank for their development in the Western World, and whisky starts its life more or less a barley beer. Yes they then take different paths, but that shared beginning is something worth exploring.

This is not a pairing, it’s a pure exploration into beer and whisky.

Two Hosts: Natalya Watson is a Beer Sommelier and she is EPIC. You’re in for a treat & I’m not just talking about the drinks. Natalya’s knowledge is absolute, and delivered with passion. I am delighted Natalya is co-hosting. I – Paul Flatts – will be the whisky maestro, and will deliver the whisky purely focusing on taste. Remember, the tasting is blind.

The Venue: The Queen’s Head is a charismatic Victorian boozer, with beautiful original tiles. It’s the perfect place to enjoy this tasting. Wait until you see their whisky menu!!!

These guys are passionate, inspired and eclectic with their drink selection – they serve beers & whiskies you might not find anywhere else. Conveniently located – tucked just 5 mins from King’s Cross – 66 Acton Street, London, WC1X 9NB

The Tasting: This is a blind tasting including both whisky and beer.

Why blind? Because the way these drinks interact is truly remarkable. Removing styles and expectations allows us to concentrate on taste. We choose drinks we like based on taste, right? So, let’s see who knows their beer and whisky from whiskey.

Remove all thoughts about driving! This is an 8 drink tasting including 4 beers and 4 drams. If you know me, this might become more 😉
