At Magnum we run tastings not only of wine but Whisky, Gin and Port. Please call in to check on the latest events.

Please note that all our tastings are standing events.

Events



Each season we curate a flight of 6 gins, which we usually present four times. After a glass of fizz we ask guests to stand at a station where the gins are presented one by one over ice. We encourage patrons to try each gin straight before adding tonic. We do not garnish the gins so that the differences between each gin are not masked.

Due to safety considerations all tastings, of spirits or wines, are standing events.


Brian is currently nailing down some dates for appearances by wine makers but these events are currently planned.
