I’ve just received this from one of my collaborators David Coveney, Head Barman of the Vineyard at Stockcross and The Spirit Cellar.
Our name speaks for itself, we’re all about wine. However, on 21st June we’re going to be matching gin and vodka cocktails, using Herefordshire-based Chase Distillery spirits, to each of the four courses to be enjoyed throughout the evening.
Chase Distillery is known for the first single estate English gin that has been created in over 200 years, and also for its internationally renowned vodka. The distillery is unique in the fact that it grows, mashes, ferments, strips, distils and hand bottles both spirits on its farm in Herefordshire.
We’re really pleased to have James Chase, son of the owner, William Chase join us for the evening. Here’s more about the evening itself:
- 7pm – Arrive and take part in a cocktail masterclass
- 7.45pm – Introduction about the estate from James
- 8pm – Enjoy a four course dinner perfectly matched with Chase gin and vodka-based cocktails
- Demonstrations of each cocktail will be taking place throughout the evening between each course for you to watch.
