Be inspired during a Tarquin’s distillery tour, and tingle your taste buds with gin tasting and a three-course private dining experience

We’ve partnered with our friends Tarquin’s for a series of unique events, perfect for friends looking for a Saturday evening with a difference,  or couples who share a love of good food and drink.

This evening event includes:

  • An intimate, behind-the-scenes tour of Tarquin’s Distillery

Your 90-minute journey includes a refreshing G&T on arrival, an introduction to the history of Tarquin’s Gin, a botanical masterclass, a walking tour of the distillery to meet the copper stills in which the magic happens, a tutored tasting of the core four gins perfectly paired with mixers (designated drivers will be able to select a free 5cl Mini Bottle of their choice, to enjoy at home)

  • ‘Wax your own’ and take home a complimentary 70cl bottle of Tarquin’s Cornish Dry

Take home a one-of-a-kind bottle and experience the iconic waxing process first-hand.

  • A private dining experience at the Scarlet, including a seasonal three course dinner served with paired wines

The menu is full of local ingredients, and is inspired by Tarquin’s exquisite flavourings, as recommended by the gin masters themselves: think cured monkfish, braised venison and dark chocolate delice to finish, served with paired wines carefully selected and presented to you by our talented team.

Tickets for these events are £110 per person, and we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
