Speech House Tasting Series

Speech House Tasting Series

Come and join us for three fun tasting experiences. We will explore the botanical flavours of gin, the warming flavours of whisky and indulge in a sensational cocktail experience.

The Speech House Tasting Series, is a selection of three Autumnal events. There will be a Gin Tasting Experience, Whisky Tasting Experience and a Cocktail Tasting Experience. All of these at the historic Speech House Hotel, in the heart of the Forest of Dean.

Each tasting experience evening will include a selection of delicious small plates, to complement the flavours and theme of the night.

Gin Tasting Experience – 16th September 2021

We have a selection of local gins for you to taste, courtesy of Silver Circle Distillery. Inspired by the enchanting woodland walks and spectacular views of the Wye Valley, their signature Wye Valley gin will be featured, alongside three other distinguished Gins they distill. All paired with mixers from Double Dutch to really bring the flavours to life.

Cocktail Tasting Experience – 21st October 2021

We all have our favourite cocktail, but have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a Mixologist for the evening? We have you covered. Working with Silver Circle Distillery,  we are going to bring you an evening to whip those Autumnal blues away!

Whisky Tasting Experience – 4th November 2021

We will take you on a fascinating winter warming journey. We’ll put a selection to the test and explain a little bit about why each whisky is unique. Whether it’s your drink of choice, or you’re looking to find a new favourite, this event is the perfect one for you.

Each tasting experience is just £15 per person. However, you can book a place on all three, for a discounted price of £40 per person.

Add to the experience…

Why not stayover and book a hotel room at the Speech House, so you don’t have to debate who’s driving! We’re offering the tasting experience series guests 10% off the room rate for B&B.


We’re really proud to be working with some great partners, from the local area, and further afield – so a big thank you to Bacardi, Double Dutch, Silver Circle Distillery and Matthew Clark.
