AMOC Virtual Gin Tasting Evening with Piston Gin

AMOC members are invited to take part in a virtual gin tasting evening starting at 6pm on Thursday 2nd December, hosted by Piston Gin Distillery Manager – Grace Stringer and HQ’s Joanne Green.

Piston Distillery was founded in 2018 at the Old Worcester Porcelain works on the banks of the River Severn. This world famous canal network was once responsible for bringing exotic spices from all over the world to the Midlands.

The session will be over a few hours and involves an exclusive virtual tour around the award winning Piston Gin distillery, learning about the history and heritage of gin, discovering the origin and uses of it back in the early 1600’s, as well as its development throughout the years - up to its recent resurgence today. 

Members will be mixing (and sampling!cocktails using the 3x 20cl mixed bottles of beautifully presented Piston Gin and accompanying ‘Fever Tree’ tonic waters and dried garnishes– which will be sent to your home in readiness for the evening.

GQ Magazine, Tatler, The Times and the Telegraph have all given the distillery and their range glowing reviews, so we hope you will join us in a pre-Christmas celebration. Why not get together with friends and family and have a virtual Christmas Party even! 🎄 

Currently, this particular event is UK membership based, due to postage restrictions at this time.

To take part, order your exclusive tasting pack by clicking the link below: the team at Piston Gin will acknowledge your order and send you your event programme and zoom meeting link to you directly.

PAST EVENT - Inspirational Talk - Al Sylvester

 

 

This was an epic tale of leading the RAF's first unsupported attempt on the Geographic South Pole. Al described how he selected and trained his team to survive in tents on Antarctica, while skiing unsupported the 600 nautical miles to the bottom of the earth. His heart on sleeve personal account of the day to day living on the ice, living on dried food, toilet drills, to skiing in temperatures of - 45 degrees, left us all with no doubt that Antarctica is one of the most beautiful but most hostile locations in the world. He concludes his presentation by reliving the effects that frostbite had on him and the mental resilience and determination he displayed to recover, to once again lead others to fulfil their dreams.

Guest Speaker: Kevin Mckee, UK Director Family Taittinger

Host: Anthony Oade, Deputy Chairman and Partnerships Director

 

Taittinger have been the proud partner Champagne to AMOC for nearly 20 years. Concours, race and social events alike have all enjoyed a touch of Taittinger sparkle.

Whilst we are mostly homebound with ongoing restrictions, we thought this would a great opportunity to learn more about the secrets of Champagne both the region and the wines, and the session proved very popular.

Kevin has worked with Champagne for as long as Taittinger has been associated with the club and had a wealth of knowledge to share. He has kindly offered to join a Q&A with Anthony to reveal some of the region’s rich and fascinating history and stories, as well as give us a guide to the different styles of Champagne just in time for the forthcoming Christmas celebrations.

The masterclass was enjoyed equally with or without a glass of Taittinger bubbles.

This was a fascinating reveal.
