Heroes Cocktail Tasting Masterclass

Heroes taken for complimentary cocktails at Harvey Nichols, then a few more at Hula

Heroes Cocktail Tasting Masterclass

CONFIDENTIAL treated seven Heroes and their guests to a free cocktail masterclass at Harvey Nichols last Thursday.

Rum and tequila flowed as Heroes enjoyed tutored tastings led by Tomas Estes and Carl Stephenson, both well-versed in the liquors.

First up was Tomas, who is one of the most influential people in the tequila industry outside of the distillers themselves.

He had the Heroes engrossed with an interactive tasting of the sweet and smooth Ocho Blanco and Ocho Reposado tequilas. Tomas finished by whipping up 'Tommy’s Margarita' for them to savour – it was met by big smiles all round.

Next was Carl, owner of Elements 8 Rum, which has gained the respect of bartenders worldwide as one of the world’s finest rums. He gave Heroes an introduction to rum and a taster glass of Elements 8 Platinum and Elements 8 Spiced before mixing them a delicious daiquiri.

Heroes said they enjoyed the presentations almost as much as the tastings, learning about where the spirits came from and the distillery process.

Afterwards we chatted to Carl and Tomas. Most people bought a couple of bottles to take home and impress their friends with their new-found knowledge.

This being a Confidential event, the night didn't end there. Heroes were invited for another round of free cocktails at Hula Tiki Bar in the Northern Quarter. A fitting end to a night of fine drinks and fine company.
