Barsol Pisco Tasting

  • Google Calendar ICS

We’re hosting tasting of Barsol’s amazing selection of piscos, all the way from Peru. Tom Batram, who discovered Barsol for importer Speciality Brands, will lead us through a sampling of at least four different varieties of Barsol’s piscos.

Pisco is an unaged grape brandy from South America. It’s most famous in the UK for the Pisco Sour cocktail, but there are plenty of different ways of drinking this exceptional spirit – and plenty of different expressions, depending on grape variety and production method.

We’ll be in The JubJub, upstairs above the Callooh Callay cocktail bar in Shoreditch, East London. The event will run from 7pm until about 8.30pm.

Pensador Mezcal Tasting

Join us at 7pm on Wednesday 27th February at Chiringuito in East London’s trendy Bethnal Green neighbourhood to try some wonderful Pensador mezcal.

Pensador is a trans-Atlantic collaboration between Atenogenes García, a Mexican farmer and distiller, and Ben Schroder, a 26-year-old Englishman. Ben fell in love with mezcal during his post-degree travels in Mexico in 2015. He came back wanting to share his new-found appreciation of agave spirit with his home country and, the very next summer, he went back with the mission of finding a producer to work with. 

When Ben discovered Don Atenogenes’s farm in the state of Oaxaca he was blown away by his "clean, clear and bright” mezcal.
