Macallan: showcasing its history

Clerkenwell brasserie and bar Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings is exploring the world of spirits and champagne, with tastings and interactive sessions from brands including Macallan Whisky, Herradura Tequila and Ruinart Champagne.

Running in October and November, the first event on 3 October will feature an interactive food and drink experience in partnership with Solerno Sicilian blood orange liqueur, with a tasting and cocktail-making session.

The Macallan single malt scotch whisky event on 11 October will showcase a six-course dinner created by chef Adam Gray, accompanied by six tailored pairings of Macallan’s award-winning whisky range, neat or crafted into exquisite cocktails. Michael Green of Macallan will take guests on a journey exploring Macallan's history, culminating in a tasting of the Macallan Rare Cask.

Herradura Tequila will host a Day of the Dead-themed evening on 1 November, with music, agave and Mexican food. After a welcome drink, face-painting and snacks to the sounds of a genuine Mariachi, Herradura’s UK brand ambassador Nicci Stringfellow will take guests through the history, productions and flavours of Mexico’s best-loved tequila Hacienda, rounding off with more specially created tastes of Mexico.

On 14 November, Veuve Cliquot, Moet et Chandon and Dom Perignon Champagnes will stage a vintage champagne tasting with Moet Hennessy’s top wine expert Lucy Warren.

The final event, the Art of Ruinart, also on 14 November, will include dinner paired with wines from the oldest champagne house.
