Last year\'s Great English Taste Off was so successful that The Brighton Wine Company are teaming up again with Isaac At to host a fabulous celebration of great Sussex fayre and fabulous English wines - Round 2!
Last time, Isaacs\' sommelier, Alex Preston, and Chris Orr, MD of TBWC, selected their favourite, top-notch wines from this sceptred isle and pitted them against each other in a battle of the wines. Alex won. Chris was a sore loser. So this has all the makings of a classic grudge match, but with brilliant bites and fine wines thrown in.
Isaac Bartlett-Copeland, the restaurant\'s eponymous chef - who was listed number 12 in this year\'s Top 20 Brighton Restaurants - will work his magic in the kitchen creating a selection of wonderful canapes, along with freshly selected local cheeses to pair up with the wines. Running from 7pm to 9.30pm, the event will showcase one of Brighton\'s brightest culinary talents, alongside some the UK\'s top wine producers. And who knows, there may even be some fisticuffs to witness betwixt Alex and Chris - which will no doubt add fun, theatre and potentially the odd black eye.
So come and join us, but book quickly. Last year was a sell out.

Come and explore the wonderful world of whisky while raising vital funds for the Dunkirk Refugee Women\\\'s Centre!
Whisky your go-to drink? Are you a devotee of the dram, partial to a peaty drop? Or perhaps you’re wondering what all the whisky fuss is about. Whether you’re a curious beginner or a seasoned sipper, come and explore the sensational world of single malts, discovering six incredible whiskies while raising funds for a fantastic cause.
After a welcome cocktail, join Kristiane Sherry, spirits writer and educator, for an informal guided tasting session taking in six different whiskies from Scotland and beyond.
All profits from the Good Spirits Whisky Tasting (and all raffle proceeds) will be donated to the Dunkirk Refugee Women\\\'s Centre, an organisation that offers women and children in the Dunkirk refugee camp a safe space to relax and complete daily routines.
It’s been a perishingly cold winter across Europe, and the centre remains in urgent need of funds to keep Dunkirk’s displaced women and children warm and safe. On top of this, the vehicle we helped fund from the gin tasting has suffered a gearbox failure and is in need of repairs. The proceeds from the evening will make a direct and immediate difference to the Centre’s ability to look after the women and children in the area.
There will also be a raffle with some fantastic prizes generously donated from local businesses – keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details nearer the time.
Come and do good while drinking great spirits. It’s a win-win!
