New Tastings Announced
View this email in your browser
Good Evening Dear Customers

And a very happy & prosperous New Year to all of you.

We're pretty much sold out of tickets for our January events (the exceptions are noted below), but we've a grand set of tastings planned for February.

Angus MacRaild returns for another in his fascinating series of Old & Rare Whisky tastings, offering you a chance to taste some drams from the mists of (recent!) history.

We're taking a look at the hard to classify bottles, those unique distillates which define their own categories, in our Unicorn Spirits event (aka The Weird Stuff).

We've also got tastings in Rum, Spanish Wine, Bourbon, Gin, Whisky, and, to wrap up the month as we started it, The Good Cocktail Club.

Looking ahead to March, we're running the Wines & Spirits Education Trust Level 3 Award in Wines, which will take place over six Thursdays from March the 19th. There are also a few spaces left on the Level 1 Award in Spirits course on Sunday 26th of January (if you're quick - registrations for this one are closing soon).

As always, tickets for our events are strictly limited and sold on a first come, first served basis. You can buy tickets from any of our three shops or directly from our website. Or you can give us a call on 0141 258 8427.

For WSET courses, please call the shop or get in touch by email.

And that's us - see you soon.

The Good Spirits Co.


Gin Tasting

Thursday 9th January
We're kicking off 2020 with something like our hundred and fifteenth gin tasting, so we reckon we must have tasted at least 500 gins over the years. What will 2020 bring for gin? We're not sure, but we'll be bringing six fine examples to this event, plus a delicious welcome cocktail (gin-based, of course).
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street. Buy tickets here

Cognac & Armagnac Tasting - 1 TICKET LEFT

Friday 10th January
Our once a year brandy tasting will feature six superb distillates from Cognac & Armagnac (although we may slip in something from somewhere else if we find a good 'un).
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street. Buy tickets here

Irish Whiskey Tasting - 5 TICKETS LEFT

Friday 17th January
Irish whiskey is on the up and up at the moment, and it's been two years since our last Irish tasting, so it's high time we had another one. We'll be sampling six top notch drams from across Ireland, with a focus on the most interesting newcomers we can source.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street. Buy tickets here




Old & Rare Whisky Tasting

Friday 7th February
Our sales pitch for this one is, “Try some drams you can’t buy”, which might seem a bit daft, given that we’re a shop. On the other hand, these drams are liquid history, and fascinating to taste. Angus MacRaild returns to present a selection of long lost whiskies and talk about the history of Scotch.
Tickets £45 in advance (plus £1.50 booking fee for card payments). 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street.

Bourbon Tasting

Saturday 8th February
There are now something like 2000 American whiskey distilleries. Sadly we won’t be able to taste our way round them all, but we will have six fine trans-Atlantic drams for you to sample.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street. Buy tickets here

Unicorn Spirits

Friday 14th February
The working title for this tasting was “The Weird Stuff”, but we figured that “Unicorn Spirits” sounds more exciting, and of course is much more social media friendly (soooo many GIFs). Join us to taste six hard to categorise, unusual, or just plain out-there distillates.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street. Buy tickets here

Gin Tasting

Saturday 15th February
These days it feels like there are more gin botanicals than gin drinkers, and nearly every gin producer likes to include something unique and local in their recipe. We’ll be sampling six gins, so that’s probably another two dozen botanicals to add to the list.  And as always at our gin tastings, we’ll welcome you to the event with a delicious cocktail.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street. Buy tickets here

Spanish Wine Tasting

Sunday 16th February
From Galicia in the North-West, to Rioja, to Penedes, to Valencia and Murcia in the South-East, we’ll be touring the wine regions of Spain whilst tasting eight different wines. Please note that this is an afternoon event.
Tickets £25 in advance. 2-4pm at 23 Bath Street. Buy tickets here

Whisky Tasting

Friday 21st February
This is our regular tour of the whisky shelves, with a tasting of six whiskies chosen from the latest independent bottlings and new releases from the distillers.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street. Buy tickets here

Rum Tasting

Saturday 22nd February
We’ll start this event with a specially devised rum cocktail before sampling six rums sourced from the Caribbean, Scotland, or other exotic locations.
Tickets £25 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street. Buy tickets here

The Good Cocktail Club

Saturday 29th February
Cocktail Club returns to its normal last Saturday of the month slot, and brings you three fabulous mixed drinks, demonstrations of how to make them at home, plus a sampling of some of the ingredients involved.
Tickets £30 in advance. 7-9pm at 23 Bath Street. Buy tickets here
