Private and Corporate Cheese Tastings

Whether it’s the main course, or merely the appetiser, a private cheese tasting is a unique, entertaining and informative addition to any event. From private parties and family festivities, to corporate conferences, company celebrations and client entertaining, our events team can help you create a bespoke experience for parties of any size.


How does it work?

 

Tell us what you have in mind, in terms of:

 

- The date and time of your event

- The type of event

- The ‘venue’ of your event – virtual or in person

- The number of people

- A theme, if you already know.

- The amount you wish to spend


From there, our Event Planner will help you curate an occasion to remember. Helping you to design a cheese selection of your choice and recommending fine food and wine pairings, to suit your budget and dietary requirements.

Our Private and corporate events can be hosted virtually or in person by one of our Cheese Specialists.

 

Virtual Events

 

For virtual events, our team will arrange for your chosen cheese selections to be sent out to participants two days before the event, along with tasting notes, one of our cheese care guides and a gift message (if you wish).

 

We can also set up and arrange the Zoom call for you, where one of our Cheese Specialists will join you for an interactive guided tasting.

 

If you would like your guests to order and purchase their cheese individually, we can set up a bespoke link on our website for these orders.

 

Live Events

 

Live events are back! And our team can join you at your event venue to lead a cheese tasting.
Our Cheese Specialists can attend and host events in Bath and the surrounding area, and in London. 

Events at Walcot St, Bath

 

Where better to host a cheese tasting than a cheese shop. Our shop and cafe on Walcot St in Bath is available for more intimate evening events, for up to 20 people*. Perfect for cheese and wine nights or perhaps a supper club event, our cheese specialists and chefs can create canapes, cheese boards and desserts to delight your guests.

*Subject to social distancing regulations.
