Gin Club

 

 

The GIN-vestigation continues on this month with 5 new fabulous gins, we will be trying them blind to establish the flavour profiles of the gin before making and decision about the gin, based on branding. This should give you a really good insight in how to get different flavours from a particular gin. We will be rating the gins out of 5 based on different criteria. At the end we will find out which gins are which and if your impression of the gins change once you find out what they are!

 This should be a fun informal evening; the price includes the gin and tonic as a mixer. There will also be nibbles to snack on, please inform us of any allergies before the event. Hope to see you there.

Wine and Tapas: Spanish grapes in the world

 

 

Cambridge Wine Merchants and ¡Qué rico! Tapas are very happy to launch another edition of the popular Wine and Tapas Tastings! We started this series of tastings three years ago with the aim of widening knowledge about Spanish wines and the Spanish gastronomy. This year, our goal is the same but we event want to go a bit ahead and we have customized new tastings that will surprise you.

We are keeping the most popular wine tastings from very well-known regions in Spain and we have added two new wine tastings that we hope you will enjoy them. They are focused on the grapes rather than in the "terroir"; so we will taste how Spanish grapes taste in other parts of the world where they are being grown and how grapes from other countries are adding a special "bouque" to the Spanish wines.
Save these dates: 
18th September: Spanish grapes in the world
13th November: World grapes in Spain
The Wine Tastings include a Tapas menu where each wine is matched with a traditional Spanish tapa from the regions we are about. The idea is to show the diversity and wealth of the Spanish cuisine, how different it is in each region and show the quality of the Spanish products.
All the Wine and Tapas Tastings are held at Cambridge Wine Merchants Cherry Hinton Branch (163 Cherry Hinton Rd, Cambridge CB1 7BX map) at 7 pm.
There will be a vegetarian option you can ask for. Due to the nature of the event, we will do our best to accommodate allergy dietary requirements when possible or we will offer an alternative dish. Please let us know in advance of the event as we can not accommodate dietary requirement on the night.

Tickets are £37.50 per person and include 5 Tapas and 5 Wines

If you're a chocolate and wine and spirit lover this is the event for you, we intend to challenge your expectations pairing wines from all over the world with plenty of different styles as well as throwing a few curve balls in with a few different drink pairings such as gin and beer. 

Cambridge Wine Merchants is a dynamic business always looking for new ways to get customers to try and taste wines they may not of had the opportunity to try, and we hope that this tasting will be no exception. We are delighted to be working with Gloria. She is a true artisan and will be there to guide us through how each of her creations have been produced and explaining the process bean to product.

We hope you will join us for this truly indulgent evening. Please do let us know if you have any dietary requirement.

Tickets are £27 per person
