As part of an occasional series of tastings of drinks that achieved their heyday in the 18th century, the Foundling Museum will be hosting an evening of port tastings in March.
Their gin tasting event last November was great fun, and I’ll expect similar from the port tasting.
The cost is Â£15, which actually works out quite well if you look at the amount you get to drink and the size of the measures.
The only hope I would make based on previous events is that they hire a large number of glasses and pre-fill them (to the top) before we all arrive. Last time they swilled the glasses out with water and then topped up with each gin, which was a bit messy and time consuming.
Being much more of a port man myself, I expect I will be there.
