Taste of East Anglia

Virtual tasting

Wild Knight Distillery, in collaboration with Charlie Hodson, founder of Hodson & Co Cheese Rooms with Delicatessen, is today launching their ‘A Taste of East Anglia’ virtual tasting event. The event which takes place over Zoom from 7 to 8pm on Friday, March 26th, invites guests to join the hosts for a virtual tasting of everything in a Taste of East Anglia curated tasting box. The tasting box, is available online for £67 (including delivery) and showcases Boadicea® Gin from Wild Knight Distillery along with an accompanying tonic from Merchant’s Heart Spirit Enhancers. St.Jude Cheese supplied by Charlie Hodson is also included, along with Smoked Salmon from Staithe Smokehouse, Garlic & Black Pepper Salami from Marsh Pig Charcuterie, Tomato Chilli Jam from The Tea Lady, Hand-Roasted Nicaraguan Jinotega Coffee Beans from Give it Some Beans Coffee, and Peter’s Yard Sourdough Crackers and Flatbreads (gluten-free option available). Guests buying the tasting box will be sent a link to join the virtual tasting event on March 26th and can be ensured of a fun-filled food and drink event as each of the producers will introduce their products and discuss the best way to serve them. Guests will also be able to ask questions of the producers.

Steph Brown, co-founder of Wild Knight Distillery commented, “Due to the lack of events over the past 12 months, we felt that it would be great to connect with our customers again, even if only virtually, so we’ve brought together a whole group of our local producer friends in a delicious tasting box. It’s a real treat for any food and drink lover!” Charlie Hodson also commented: “From gin distilling wizards, cheese churning magicians to the Queen (and King) of the chutney world, East Anglia is the most perfect harvest ground to fulfill every foodie desire. Taste of East Anglia is an important way to showcase our amazing county’s artisan food and drink producers, of which I am so proud.” Depending on the success of this event, it is hoped the team may organise more of these virtual tastings.
