South Downs Cellars in-House Events
Watch this space for our full calendar of in-house wine tastings for 2017 held in our Hurstpierpoint and Lindfield stores alongside some bespoke evenings a little further afield.
Mad Hatters Gin Party
Saturday 20th May, 7pm
at Lindfield Coffee Works, Alma Road, West Sussex, RH16 2HL
Get your ticket now and join us as we tumble down the rabbit hole with six outstanding local boutique gins. You will be accompanied on this exploration of gin by the producers themselves as they talk you through their own gin story whilst you taste each gin from vintage china teacups, nibble on vintage snacks and consult your playing cards. But it doesn't stop there as each producer has designed a cocktail to make their gin sing and yes, you've guessed it, you'll be tasting those too as our producers get their chemistry hats on and cocktail shakers ready...

The evening begins with an aperitif, Prosecco, Aperol or a soft drink, followed by plates of cicchetti (an Italian version of tapas). freshly prepared from the cucina of Mama Selina. A wine tasting of 4 Italian regional wines is included, matched to the food and presented by our friend Giles from South Downs Cellars, UK Independent Drinks Retailer of the Year 2016.
