Frequently Asked Questions
Our packs include a comprehensive tasting handbook and a professional 4k (ultra-high-definition) video. All our videos are hosted by industry experts, most often the maker themselves. They are designed to be enjoyed as fun, memorable experiences — much more than just a box of drinks.
A link and password to your tasting video will be provided in your order details (check your emails), and within the tasting handbook included within your tasting kit.
Our tasting videos are hosted by Vimeo, and can be watched on any web browser simply by clicking the link or using our QR code, and entering the password.
The video recordings vary in length and are generally around 30-40 minutes. However, they are designed to be paused and watched at your leisure.
This means you could complete your tasting within an hour, or you could spread it out over the course of an entire evening, perhaps evening pausing for supper
Our tasting packs are always designed so that you will have everything you need for a tasting experience - excluding a glass to drink out of!
However, you may also want to have a go making our ‘perfect serves’, cocktails and mixed drinks that we have designed to be compatible with each product from your tasting pack.
We recommend having a read through your tasting handbook when you receive your pack as and you can decide which extra ingredients, if any, you want to pick up before you start.
Our tasting packs vary in size. Most spirit packs are 5 x 50ml bottles. This is enough for 2 to 3 people to share, however the bottles are screw-cap, which means you use as much or as little as desired during the tasting, or save enough for a perfect serve at another time.
Depending on the number in your group, you may wish to upgrade to one of our 'bumper packs', whereby you receive a full-sized bottle of each product for the tasting, and set of tasting handbooks. Depending on the size of your group, this can offer a substantial saving.
For large groups (over 20 people), please feel free to contact us for a bespoke quote. Email firstname.lastname@example.org

Our courier, DHL, work on a 'zone' basis and these areas fall into different zones and the difference in cost significant.
As someone who is from Northern Ireland and has family and friends there, I completely understand how frustrating this is.
Until we engage with a new delivery service, we are heavily subsidising the cost of the shipping fees to these areas and charging only a small amount extra.
This means you are paying £2 more than those in the mainland zone and the minimum order of for free shipping is £125.
Thank you for understanding.
