Booze walks – Part of the Bristol Walking Festival
Booze walks –
Please note these walks were in 2014; for more up to date details on my events click on the picture of me to the right.
This year, and for a limited time only, I’ll be running two exclusive Booze walks. They are 2 hour long strolls, around the stunning backdrop of Brunel’s masterpiece suspension bridge and through the worlds first heritage site Avon Gorge. Within this majesty we’ll be sipping on something alcoholic, sharing stories of all things boozey, meeting new friends and you’ll get to hear me waffle on about plants and booze.
Due to my schedule I will only be running two of these booze walks this year, so once they have sold out that’s it I’m afraid!
Numbers are limited so to avoid disappointment please do book a place by emailing me.
More details about these Booze walks
The second booze walk is going to be free and will be part of the Bristol Walking Festival on May 8th and it starts at 16.30 (4.30pm)- THIS WILD BOOZE WALK IS NOW FULL a handful of spaces are left on the 4th May. You will have to book on and to do that please email me. As soon as this walk is full or if you can’t make it don’t worry, you don’t have to miss out as I will be having a lunchtime stroll on May 4th for this I’ll be charging just £ or the price of a cocktail (in some places). Again to book, please email me or use the contact form at the bottom. The Sunday May 4th Walk will start at the earlier time of 12.30pm. Both will start outside the Create centre (click here for how to get there).
What to expect from the Exclusive Booze walks.
I will be sharing some of things that helped inspired my 2 award winning booze books, Booze for Free and Brewing Britain and my Guardian blog. We’ll be identifying some of the plants that can be turned into historic ales, delicious wines and sumptuous cordials. I’ll also be happy to answer any questions you might have about brewing in this informal and relaxed atmosphere from elderflower champagne woes, to Slow gin tips and problems with beers. All this and booze!
The booze walks are a celebration to mark my fresh returned from Turin, Italy where I will be making a Vermouth documentary so there is sure to be some added extras about the botanical and brewing process of this understated fortified wine. If you are new to Vermouth it is the backbone of many of the most classic cocktails including the Martini, Negroni, Martinez and Manhattan.
If you like drinking, walking and meeting people the booze walks are an event for you. You know what I’ll even offer you a discount on my signed editions of books Brewing Britain or Booze for Free (or both) if you come along. How does 30% off sound? Hope to see you there.
