Summer Social Series ends in American style

Our Industry leading events are a must for thousands of publicans, restaurateurs, and hoteliers every year. Fantastic products on show, with the passionate people who make them ready to entertain and explain in equal measures.

This year has been no different, with our national wine tasting and Uncovered events being joined by the marvellous Summer Social Series which came to an end earlier this month with Summer Social Series: #Americano.

The Americano movement shows no sign of slowing down! The final Summer Social of 2016 was a celebration of the US with a mix of wine, spirits, and beer. We embraced the juggernaut which is all things looking & tasting American! A day full of Special Serves, Bourbon, American Gin and American craft beer including Point, Goose Island, Sierra Nevada and much more!

On the lower floor, we had a great range of wines from Argentina, Chile, and the US. The Argentinean range was focussed on ‘Malbec and more’ showing much more than the usual Argentinean Malbec. ‘Explore beyond Merlot’ for the Chilean range with some interesting wines to show the customers there is more to Chile than just Merlot. Mark Fettes from Accolade and Chuck Cramer from Terlato Wines showed their full-flavoured wines from the US.

Sauza went all with a ‘Day of the Dead’ themed bar! The entire Sauza range was available for tasting and some amazing serves were enjoyed by customers while wearing specially designed ‘Day of the Dead’ masks

The venue upstairs was filled with spirits and craft beers from America. Balcones Brimstone was available to taste and the smokey flavours matched perfectly with the pulled pork baps provided by Bodeans with Jack Daniels BBQ sauce!

The London team has done a fantastic job of keeping long evenings interesting this summer, we hope to see you all next time for our Christmas Socials, keep up to date with our events here.
