Gauntleys of Nottingham

Tickets: £35 per person

Gauntleys of Nottingham are one of Nottingham’s oldest retailers having been founded in 1880 as a tobacconists, before expanding into wine and spirits in the mid 1980's when owner John Gauntley took over the running of the business from his father. Situated on the entrance to Nottingham’s famous Exchange arcade, Gauntleys are one of Nottinghams most famous land marks. The Gauntleys buying team take their buying responsibilities very seriously, being one of the first UK winemerchants to venture into the Rhone Valley in France, they have an enviable portfolio of agencies, featuring some of the great winemakers of the region along with a selection of the talented next generation. They also have the UK agency for one of the greatest Champagne growers in the region, that being Champagne Vilmart, as well as selection of wines from the Loire, Alsace and beyond.

The Gauntleys range of whiskies and spirits is deep and diverse and has been specially curated by Chris Goodrum, Nottingham’s top malt whisky impresario and expert, although being a pretty modest person he would never deem to call himself an expert! The range of over 300 whiskies includes many specially selected Malts from Scotland and the UK plus a large range of Independent private bottlings. Chris also believes that great whisky isn't just the preserve of the British Isles and you will find a selected inventory from all over the world including Italy, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia, India and Japan to name but a few. As an aside, Chris also has a YouTube channel, called the Good Dram Show, in which he tastes and presents a number of interesting spirits, as well as commenting on relevant stories and gossip within the industry. A new episode is filmed most weekends, so there is always something new and interesting to watch! Gauntleys hold at least one Whisky evening per month through out the year.

These evenings are quite educational and are presented in a fun and entertaining way. They take place at the Gauntleys Of Nottingham store at 4 High Street, Nottingham NG1 2ET and usually commence at 7pm (doors would open 6.50pm). There are normally six whiskies featured on the night with styles ranging from light and easy going up to the more thought provoking, fuller bodied expressions. The evenings are split in to two distinct portions, the first of which is the educational part, or as Chris would say, the part where he talks a lot! In this first section you will learn a little bit of the back ground to each whisky or distillery and also any unique traits that each whisky may have. The second portion is the more chilled out, as customers are invited to resample some of the whiskies and to discuss amongst each other their thoughts on the whiskies sampled.
