What is Blind Tasting
We’re all influenced by price and branding, so when we take these away and don’t know what’s what, a blind taste test challenges our tasting skills. In a blind tasting, you taste a particular food or drink product, blind. While you don’t technically need to be blindfolded or have your eyes closed, the idea of a blind taste is to taste without knowing what the product is, where it’s from, or its price. Or any other pieces of information that might impact your preferences. At the end of a blind tasting, you’ll find out what each product is, where it’s from, and its price, which might leave you pleasantly surprised with your discoveries.

What are these events about?
At these exclusive events, you’ll blind taste a type of food or drink and engage in fun discussions while meeting new people. Each event is unique and usually takes place over a meal (lunch or dinner), with most drinks included in the event price. There’s usually an expert attending (think sommelier, barista, etc.) to guide the conversation and help novice tasters like you and me learn something new.
Discover something new and talk with open-minded people in a relaxed and inviting environment. Events are limited to ten people max, so sign-up before it’s too late.
