I've now mostly finalised who should bring what to the tasting, indicated after the names in the top post
I've tried to contact most people in advance about their contribution - if you are surprised/confused/have a query, drop me an email/PM
A few points to note about logistics for the tasting:
- I am assuming everyone is having both lunch and dinner, please advise if you don't want lunch or dinner or both
- I will operate a money clearing system for the whole tasting, which means that I will work out the cost for each person for the port, lunch, dinner and tips, and will ask for payment up front. Some people are very generously contributing a hefty number of bottles and will be receiving cash rather than paying it!
- the bottles will be costed at £90 per bottle, with the exception of £120 per bottle for T, F, D, G, Ni, which are typically more expensive
- I will slightly overestimate the costs in case one or two folks need to drop out, and consequently I expect that there might be a small repayment of up to £30 per person once all of the actual costs are known and taken care of
