The Alderley Edge Gin Social · Friday 16/2/18 · The Tasting Room, Corks Out Alderley Edge


We’re often asked about gin – more importantly would we host a gin tasting. Like all our tasting events we only want to do it well and stay true to our commitment to entertainment, enjoyment and education. If we decided to host a gin tasting we would only feature:


premium gin

premium tonic water or mixers and premium garnishes

a premium venue

a decent measure! A tiny tasting is never enough and is frankly rather rude!

last and never least, provide an entertaining evening out with great company.


We avoid projectors and screens as we don’t want our tasting events to seem like an extension to your day at work. We love gin as much as the rest of the UK and we’ve decided the time has arrived to satisfy our guest’s wishes:


we welcome you to The Alderley Edge Gin Social!


Join us in The Tasting Room at Corks Out Alderley Edge for a gintastic Friday night out and indulge in a tour of the world of gin like no other in town. Our gin selection will be from the outstanding range of small batch premium gins available at Corks Out Alderley Edge.

What's included

Dutch courage or mothers’ ruin?


Gin has a colourful history and during your evening with us in The Tasting Room you’ll get to know a little more about the history of gin and of course enjoy a fantastic selection of premium gins as well as the stories behind the distilleries who make them.


We’ll showcase five amazing gins which we’ll pair with premium tonic waters and mixers as well as a selection of garnishes. There are five different drinks in total (all with a full measure* of gin – no tiny tasters allowed!) and then you can ‘create your own’ after with your favourite gin of the night** together with your choice of tonic and garnish.


All this plus the fantastic atmosphere of The Tasting Room at Corks Out Alderley Edge – is there a better way to enjoy a Friday evening out in the village?


If you’re in the mood to try a few more, the bar at Corks Out will be open afterwards.


*Where stated a measure is at least the UK standard 25ml.

**subject to availability from our chosen selection.

Bar nibbles will be served during the evening: we suggest you eat prior to the event.

Your wine school host

The evening will be hosted by our Founder, Richard Smith, who will share with you some of his twenty five years knowledge of all things wine as well as some anecdotes (but alas, no secrets) from his time as a butler. Richard trained at one of the world’s finest hotels and is proud to have advised several members of the British Royal Family and a number of international heads of state and celebrities. Richard has recently been featured in The Daily Mail and Cheshire Life magazine and he regularly writes for The Taster magazine. He most recently appeared at Three Wine Men in Manchester alongside TV wine legends Oz Clarke, Olly Smith and Tim Atkin MW.
