Good Evening Dear Customers

We've got nine tastings and courses lined up for April, and we also have a couple of our May events planned out and included in this newsletter.

After starting April with a Whisky tasting on the 3rd, we've then got Vermouth & Amaro, an Australian Wine tasting, Gin, Rum, Cider, and the Good Cocktail Club. We're also running a presentation of the WSET Level 2 Award in Spirits starting on Sunday the 19th. 

Our guest event for April will feature the Isle of Arran distillery and brand ambassador Mariella Romano.

Looking ahead to May, we have our annual Wine Fair on Friday the 1st, and then, commencing on Sunday the 17th, a presentation of the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines.

To book a tasting event, you can visit any of our three shops, call 0141 258 8427, or shop online via our website. 

See you soon,

The Good Spirits Co.

We’ve hired the National Piping Centre (just ten minutes walk from the shop) and we’ll be there along with a double handful of our suppliers to present around 120 different wines for you to try. There’s everything from Champagne and Prosecco, through red, white, and rose wines from all around the world, to sherry, port, and dessert wines. It’s a sociable, relaxed evening and, as a bonus, if you place an order on the night you can get a 15% discount on our normal pricing.
