John conducted a gin tasting event at our New Years Charity event, this was a great experience and is now the 2nd event i have been on with John. A great host, highly knowledgeable and the ability to introduce us to gins we had not heard of before and even a few different types of mixer! Fab event, highly encourage anyone to attend one of them.

“Fab Evening Gin Tasting”

My partner and I attended the first ever gin tasting, we really enjoyed the evening, it was relaxed, informative and fun! John is excellent, he is very knowledgeable and the fact that he brings his own gin for you to try is just fantastic! Really enjoyed it and would go again. We need to get the wine tasting booked! Highly recommended for gin lovers! Thank you.
