Dyfi Distllery - Pollination & Hibernation Gin
Wednesday, 13th September 2017, 7.30 - 8.30pm
Hosted by Danny Cameron
Dyfi is a unique distillery situated in the old Welsh mining town of Corris. They currently produce two of the world's most exciting new gins - Pollination & Hibernation. The botanicals for these spectacular gins are foraged from the nearby & Eden-like UNESCO Biosphere of the Dyfi Valley Matrix in Wales - an area devoted to the conservation & study of local wildlife.
Alongside being recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Dyfi Biosphere is home to an incredible array of botanicals, many of which are used in the production of this wonderful gin.
Guests will enjoy a tutored tasting with Dyfi Distillery's own Danny Cameron who will discuss the production process, the botanicals utilised & how Pollination & Hibernation relate to the stunning landscape in which it is crafted.
Tickets for this event are £25, fully redeemable against any purchase of Hibernation or Pollination gin on the evening on the tasting.
St Agnes Brandy
Monday, 18th September 2017, 6.30 - 8.30pm
Hosted by John Angove, Chairman of St Agnes Distillery
The story of St Agnes Brandy stretches all the way back to 1910, when Dr William Angove established a distillery in the small, South Australian town of Renmark, around 250 miles east of Adelaide. 15 years later, in 1925, Dr Angove's son Carl began producing fine brandy & travelled to Cognac to learn first-hand from some of the world's greatest distillers.
Nearly 100 years later, St Agnes Brandy is an Australian icon & producing some of the finest aged brandies available anywhere on the planet.
Hedonism Wines is delighted to welcome John Angove, the chairman of St Agnes Distillery, to the store to host a very special comparative tasting.
Guests will enjoy a tutored tasting with John featuring St Agnes 15YO XO, 20YO Imperial XO & 40YO Grand Reserve. Alongside these bottlings, John will also be pouring Janneau XO Royal Armagnac, Hennessy XO Cognac & Hennessy Paradis Rare as a comparison. This is set to be a fascinating tasting, pitting the finest of Australia against some of France's best known brandies.
Tickets for this event are £25, fully redeemable against any purchase of St Agnes Brandy on the evening of the event.
