Events

We love events because we love people. That’s why we have a calendar of tastings and events running throughout the year that cover everything from beer, the entire world of wine, liqueurs and spirits and food and wine matching experiences.

Our events feature experts from around the world who’ll infect you with their enthusiasm and knowledge. You’ll leave with a whole heap of new favourites and no doubt some new friends too.

We also hold online events with producers from across the world. Your tickets include a special goody box of samples and tasting notes so that you can enjoy the experience from the comfort of your home.

You might also grab the chance to hold your own private tasting for a group of friends in our lovely shop. These evenings are tailor-made for you and it won’t involve us standing and talking at you. They’re about having fun and being interactive, just like a group of friends having a drink and a chat. Give us a shout for more details or if you have any questions.

Find out more about our upcoming events below or visit the shop to buy tickets.

Please note that event tickets are non-refundable but can be passed on to family and friends. Please let us know though!

Cuban Cigar and Spirits Tasting

We’ve been meaning to do this one for ages and finally, we have it lined up!

If you like to indulge in the odd cigar, you’re in for a real treat. James from Hunters & Frankau, the only Cuban Cigar importer in the country, will be in Salisbury for an evening of being properly grown up.

You’ll enjoy two cigars of different sizes alongside 3 amazing spirits carefully selected to match the cigars – a rum, a whisky and a cognac – all three spirits at the top of their game and the ideal opportunity to work out what type you prefer when you take yourself down to the bottom of the garden for that sneaky half an hour of cigar indulgence.

Where: The Old Ale & Coffee House, 80 Crane Street, Salisbury
When: 7pm, Wednesday 18th May 2022
What: 2 Cuban beauties and some heavyweight spirits
Why: The ultimate couple of hours of indulgence
Tickets: £45 per head

FIZZ & FISH FRIDAY

Thank cod it’s Friday.

Pimp up your Fish Friday with the addition of 3 amazing English Sparkling wines from the brilliant Lyme Bay Winery in Devon.

Arrive at the Ox Row for canapés and a glass of fizz followed by a choice of fish main course with two more glasses of sparkling to compare.

And then the rest of the evening is your oyster

When: 7 to 9pm on Friday 27th May
Where: The Ox Row Inn, Market Square, Salisbury
What: Posh fish and plenty of fizz
Why: Because this event will be the “plaice” to be that Friday. 
Tickets: £35 per head

Negroni night

Let’s pretend we’re in Italy and it’s “aperitivo hour”. We’ve just finished work and we’re nipping out for some drinks and snacks before heading to our favourite restaurant later on.

Let’s turn the shop into a little Negroni Bar for the evening. We’ll explore 3 different Negronis because it doesn’t all have to be about gin. So we’ll have a classic, a Mezgroni and a Rumgroni to show you just how versatile this sexy little drink can be.

All helped down with some lovely cold meats and a selection of nibbles.

When: Tuesday 14th June , 7 to 9pm
Where: The Shop, 5 Winchester Street, SP1 1NH
What: Three negronis and nibbles and plenty of chat
Why: Because we want to be Italian
Tickets: £25 

Citadelle Gin Tasting

If you love gin, then you’re going to LOVE this one.

Our hilarious and very entertaining friend Paul McFadyen (of Plantation Rum fame for you rum tasting participants!), will have his Citadelle Gin hat on for the evening of 30th June. Citadelle is the world’s most awarded gin and without a doubt, one of our best sellers. We will be tasting the range of gins alongside sharing platters provided by the Ox Row and it will be a great way to discover its story, how it’s made, what makes it different and multi-award-winning, and which style you prefer.

Not to be missed. When Paul’s in town, everyone has THE best night!

When: 7 to 9pm on Thursday 30th June
Where: The Ox Row Inn, Market Square, Salisbury
What: A range of award-winning gins and food
Why: One of the best gins in the world and one of the funniest brand ambassadors make for an awesome combo
Tickets: £35 per head

A Salisbury Jubilee

SOLD OUT
WAITING LIST AVAILABLE

You’re probably aware that Salisbury doesn’t have an official Jubilee event this year. So we’ve decided to do it.

For those of you who came along to the “Perfect Pairings” event at Arundells last year, this one will be bigger and better. In conjunction with Talk Eat Laugh, Arundells and our lovely sponsors, Wilsons Solicitors and Oliver Chandler Estate Agents, we’ll be throwing a Jubilee event to remember. Think a relaxed, vintage-styled party in the beautiful gardens with pretty lighting, fresh flowers, music, flowing wine and a full menu based on food inspired by the various Commonwealth countries, this is an evening not to be missed. 

Obviously the weather will be gorgeous because this is sunny Salisbury. But if it isn’t quite what we expect, we have a lovely marquee.  With tables for 10, grab your friends or come and make new ones. 

This is going to be so much fun and the perfect way to celebrate 70 years on the throne.

Sponsored by:

Where: In the garden at Arundells, Cathedral Close, Salisbury
When: 6.30 to 9.30pm, Friday 8th July
What: A celebration of Platinum proportions
Why: Because this will be THE Jubilee party in the city
Dress Code: Celebratory!
Tickets: £68 per person
