"Good fun, light-hearted but informative evening"
- Juliet, February 2018 

"Not being a gin drinker, i found myself absorbed into the evening, learning how to taste the various gins, then sample them before working out which I liked best from a great variety. Definitely seek out a similar event in the future"
- Niveknodel, January 2018

"Took the course to improve my general understanding of wines, what the labels mean and much more. Would recommend it highly." 
- Liz, December 2017
