Catch Glassmates at EAT! Food Fest returns to beautiful gardens of Reigate Priory this Sat 28th/Sun 29th July

Top Billing! Highlights!  GLASSMATES Whiskey Experience ~ 

About Glassmates: It is an exploratory journey through the world of drink (alcohol). Seeking to show people how to better enjoy drink, regardless of their budget, aiming to improve the consumer drinking experience. If you are the person who orders a rum and coke, they will guide you on how to be specific on the rum you choose to go with what mixer and even why no mixer at all can be a good choice. The Whiskey Experience
Come and experience a different style of whiskey tasting with the Glassmates. Speed Tasting: it’s like speed-dating but much more fun. Much like speed-dating they cut through the jibber jabber and getting straight to the good stuff, the Whiskey. Tasting 6 Whiskies from around the world, you will get to get know them and what makes them different from the other Whiskies.
Each of the Glassmates will have 2 dates for you to fall in love with. After the session you will have the op-pour-tunity to book in a date, over by the Chesterfields, with an Old Fashioned featuring the Whiskey of your choice and a talk with one of the Glassmates to
answer any further questions you may have.

Ortis (from Channel 5’s The Gadget Show), Nigel & Jimmy will be inviting you to join them in their lounge for a Glassmates Flight Challenge and whisky experience. You’ll get to taste six whiskies and the Glassmates will guide you through the tastes and nuances of their choices. You can buy your WHISKEY EXPERIENCE tickets online here
