This weekend, Hackney-based wine merchant Bottle Apostle, will be opening its fourth shop in East Village. Joining a host of other independents including gastropub Neighbourhood, Regency Beauty and Firezza, with more to come including Dalston favourite, Tina, We Salute You.
The award-winning independent wine shop owner Andrew Eakin recently said “We opened our first shop in East London, so it only felt natural to open our fourth shop with a tribute to where it all started. East Village represents an entirely new way of living in London, and we’re ecstatic to be able to be a part of this change.”
Already established in Hackney, Crouch End and Clapham, in East Village they’ll be offering a range of more than 550 wines, craft beers, premium sakes, and a distinctive spirits range. Visitors will be able to sample 16 wines at any one time, exploring various regions, styles and grape selections using Bottle Apostle’s exclusive Enomatic® tasting machines. A “try before you buy” ethos gives visitors a low-risk approach to wine buying and an experience to remember. To add to that, there’ll be an eclectic mix of wines that are colour-coded, food-matched and succinctly described, plus some very knowledgeable wine guru staff on hand to help.
For those eager to improve their wine knowledge; East Village will be providing in-store tutored tastings, themed events and its signature “Free Friday Tastings”. Customers will be encouraged to pop in, take a seat and enjoy the experience on their striking 12 foot-long tasting table.
