How does it work?

Our Virtual Tasting video is pre-recorded, which means you can take part in the tutored tasting on a day and at a time that’s convenient for you. We will send you a link to use to access the full video.

Why not share the experience with other households? You can host a Zoom or other online video conferencing call with friends and family, and broadcast this video with everyone in the call. Provided each household has their own pack, you can enjoy this experience in a larger group.

You’ll also need:

– Internet connection to watch the video.
– Ice cubes for the tasting.
– A bottle opener.
– A stirrer.
– A notepad and pen to write down your tasting notes.
– Your pack includes dried grapefruit and orange garnish, but you can bring more to experiment.

If you’d like more information or a quote for a bespoke virtual event, please contact us here or alternatively call us on 01622 670063.

Legacy

We are reinstating the tradition of Maidstone pioneer and master distiller, George Bishop, who created quality and world-renowned spirits from our county town back in 1785. We are reclaiming our forgotten heritage to produce spirits of depth, meaning and character that we can all be proud of. He was a champion of the people and it’s time for his legacy to be tasted again.
