Next up was Weavers, which was definitely not new to me, and somewhere I was really looking forward to visiting and learning more about. Weavers is one of Nottingham’s oldest independent businesses. Established in 1844 by Edward Cossal Weaver. It is very well know in my local area, as the place to go, if you need a really good bottle of wine. Its also very well known UK wide, as a distributor of wine, spirits and liqueurs.

We were invited to the Weavers Georgian town house, for a sample of a wine tasting evening that they hold there. We tried a red, white wine and fizz and we even got to check out the wine cellars, which very much look like the Nottingham caves, that our city is known for.
It was such a lovely respite, and despite being in the middle of the city, it felt like we had been transported back in time, as the home felt almost untouched with so many of the original features showing through. The also offer gin and champagne tastings and team up with The Cheese Shop to offer epic food and wine pairings to include cheese, fish etc.
I decided I needed to take one for the team though, and I couldn’t have been more wrong, it turns out I do love, good tequila. My favourite was a combination of coriander, mint, jalapeno, lime and pineapple. It was truly amazing, so refreshing, but with a subtle herby kick at the end.
This is definitely somewhere to chill and kick back, you don’t stand on ceremony. I can imagine it gets crowded in the evenings with people on the hunt for something a little different in the city.
If you fancy giving it a try, they have a daily happy hour 5-8 and all evening on a Wednesday.
So there is the very eclectic mix of independents I tried, all of which I would visit again. They reflect Nottingham really well, as we have so many different things on offer in our cool city. Huge thanks to Snizl for organising everything.
