Figgy Pudding Gin Live Cocktail and Cooking Experience

We're getting in the festive spirit with our next virtual tasting experience!

Sunday Brunch's Simon Rimmer will be demonstrating how to make a deliciously decadent chocolate figgy pudding flavoured with our festive tipple.

Our Founder, Steve Tapril, will create a wonderful Figgy Pudding Christmas cocktail.

Spencer Hyman, from Cocoa Runners, will take you through a special Christmas chocolate tasting session.

The session will take place on Thursday 18th November from 7.30PM (GMT) via Zoom.

It's more fun if you attend the live event but we will make a recording available to anyone who purchases a kit even if you can't make it on the night. 

What's going to happen

Simon, Steve and Spencer will explore tastes and flavours and why craft gin, chocolate and great food really taste better, are better for you, and better for the producers, farmers and the planet.

Steve will introduce our very special Figgy Pudding Christmas Gin with a tutored tasting - join along and make the perfect serve with tonic to quench your thirst during the evening.

Simon will demonstrate the steps to make his very own recipe for Chocolate Figgy Pudding with lashings of delicious salted caramel chocolate sauce - both flavoured delicately with our famous festive tipple.

Steve will then provide a cocktail masterclass, inviting you to join in making a showstopper to impress your family and friends over Yuletide.

Spencer will then explore and taste two wonderful Christmas-inspired chocolate bars, which you can interact with using menti.com
