Today’s deal will see you learn all about your favourite drink with the choice of either a Champagne & sparkles or gin masterclass at Aitken Wines. Go for the Champagne masterclass and you’ll add a bit of sparkle to your evening with a Gin Martini Fizz cocktail and nibbles on arrival. The tasting itself will then include samples of some of the great Grandes Marques such as Taittinger and Joseph Perrier, plus six other quality sparkling wines including Prosecco.
Alternatively, if gin is your tipple of choice you’ll indulge in a gin liqueur cocktail on arrival plus nibbles, followed by six taster premium gins all to be tasted with and without premium Fever-Tree tonic.
Cheese lovers can opt for a very sophisticated wine and cheese taster masterclass, which includes a glass of fizz on arrival, two white, two red and one fortified wine. All wines will be paired with a delicious taster of cheese, and you’ll have olives and oatcakes to accompany your treats.
Renowned wine specialists
No matter which option you go for, your class will be hosted by one of Aitken Wines WSET qualified members of staff, Patrick, Kirsty or Stuart. With over ten years’ experience teaching the wonders of wine and spirits, it’s safe to say you’re guaranteed an informative (and rather tipsy!) evening.
Aitken Wines has been operating since 1874 and take pride in offering exceptional service, quality and value for money from their Dundee shop in the West End, as well as their fantastic dedicated wine bar, The Wine Press.
They stock a selection of exceptional Grande Marque Champagnes alongside an amazing array of delicious wines and carefully chosen spirits, so these guys know a thing or two about fine fizz and lush liqueurs – whether they’re shaken or stirred!
