The No2 Experience Taster

5 Cured Meats, 5 Artisan Cheeses, 5 Wines

The No2 Taster is a celebration of some of the rarer styles of charcuterie made in very small batches and not readily available to the public. In fact, some of the selections are only for private release. The recipes are closely guarded and made by the leading Charcutiers in the U.K. The styles chosen will be contrasting and aim to show the regional terroir through exceptional grazing that gives the meat its unmatched quality.

Equally our head cheesemonger will pick 5 brilliant small batch makes. These may be an interpretation of a great French or Italian style. You will without doubt find a rarity on the board that will become a major talking point of your tasting. On this selection we will include a goat and sheep cheese. There will also be a washed rind cheese. It is our aim to showcase mainly raw milk cheeses, as we strongly believe that this style does offer more depth of flavour and length on the palate.

Our wine buyer will be picking some gems from our wine shelves. All of which will be from small and limited wine productions. The wines will offer the perfect harmony with your cheese and meats.

For this package we will also put together a menu for the event that you can take as a memento and also have branded as you wish.

Costs are as follows and include a wine & cheese expert to be on hand throughout the duration of your event.
