Get to know your taste buds at Century

Century 2012

Members' bar Century has teamed up with premium vodka brand Grey Goose to take vodka lovers on a journey of the senses.

The event will begin with a drinks reception, including Grey Goose cocktails and canapés. The Grey Goose team will talk guests through the way our tastes are influenced as they eat, before setting up a series of taste tests to demonstrate the concept – such as how isolating our senses can alter our perceptions of flavours and aromas.

The experiments will be followed by a cocktail masterclass, during which Century’s mixologists will show guests how to build a balanced cocktail. Guests will then experiment with new flavours as they break new ground and invent their own blends.

Guests will also be privy to a one-to-one session with a ‘taste doctor’, who will identify individuals’ likes and dislikes in order to ‘prescribe’ the perfect cocktail.

Guests can take their tailored recipe home to recreate. The event will take place on Saturday 26 May from 5-8pm. Tickets cost £75, with 25% of the ticket price donated to the Elton John Aids Foundation.
