Gauntleys Tasting Events 2019
We love our tasting evenings here at Gauntleys, which is why we are getting into the spirit straight away this year, so to speak! Here you will find a list of all our proposed evenings for the coming year that will feature either Cigars, Whisky (or other spirits) and wine. This handy little guide will help you plan in advance which evenings you want to attend and will also remind us what we are doing.
If a date is highlighted then you are able to book it online via our website. We would recommend doing this quickly as the events do tend to sell out rapidly, especially the Whisky ones. If a date is not highlighted, you can still book your place, but you will need to call us on 01159 110555 and do so over the phone (or in person in the shop). The list might seem a little slim at the moment, but fear not, by the end of January we should have a full list of dates available!
2018 saw the demise of Dunhill tobacco products worldwide, including their legendary pipe tobaccos. 2019 will see the release of new blends from Charatan (originally owned by Dunhill back in the day) that attempt to recreate the Dunhill blends, and we believe that they have been very successful at doing so! Join us for a day of tasting and competitions!
Our first drinks related event of the year and it has got to be whisky. 6 Whiskies over 3 hours - what more could you possibly ask for? - NOW SOLD OUT!
Our first cigar event of the year is, in fact, a re-launch of an old brand. A. Turrent cigars from Mexico have always been a firm favourite of mine ever since I first tried them about 5 years ago, and always held a fascination for me because of their almost chocolatey character. As an extra added bonus, we will also be doing a little pouring of Tequila on the night too, so you won't want to miss this one!
Missed out on the last one? Get your place bought now! Another 6 Whiskies over 3 more hours...
