The various themed rooms at the Institute of Engineering and Technology will offer guests the chance to sample a wide range of spirits, beers, ciders and wines, as well as food to soak it all up.
Confirmed suppliers include Hobgoblin, Meantime, Chase, Pedrino, Heineken and Sipsmith, with a roof terrace featuring bars hosted by Goose Island vodka, Codorniu and Mirabeau.
Anne Jones, category manager for BWS at Waitrose, said: “We’ve been wanting to do a customer event, with our favourite food and drink suppliers, for such a long time. It’s incredibly exciting that it’s finally happening. Our close relationship with suppliers means that we are able to open a fantastic range of tasting rooms, to provide Waitrose fans with the opportunity to try highlights from all of our ranges under one roof.”
Tickets are £25 per session and guests can learn to make their own gin, sample speciality food and meet the Waitrose BWS experts.
