Topical Tipples (aka Booze Cruise)

Leader: Liz Alcock

Sloe berries

An seasonal autumn group which meets when the sloes (fruit of the blackthorn bush) are black & ripe. Having collected and frozen your sloes, you bring them along with other items to make your sloe gin.

We also make Limoncello with vodka, using unwaxed lemons.

Contact Liz Alcock.

Wine Appreciation

Do you enjoy wine and want to learn more about it in a relaxed and informal way? Then join our Wine Appreciation group and improve your knowledge.

Members of the Wine Group raise their glasses
Members of the Wine Appreciation Group take their wine seriously — and with great pleasure

Valerie Cowan, a member of the Association of Wine Educators who has led this group since its inception, is taking a well-earned rest but still keeping a watchful eye. Individual members take turns in choosing a selection of wines (usually three each of white and red) and introducing them. After tasting the wine, we discuss what we liked or disliked about each one. We drink wine because we like it; not because we’re wine snobs.
