After six month hiatus, free tastings are now back on the menu in Majestic Wine stores across the UK. The move follows the easing of lockdown measures, inline with the reopening of in-door hospitality, something which both customers and colleagues at the retailer have been keen to see return – in a safe environment.
The ability to taste a range of wines, beer and spirits – free of charge – in any branch of the country’s largest specialist drinks retailer has been a hallmark of the business for over forty years. Majestic estimates it opens over 200,000 bottles a year just for the purpose of allowing customers the chance to try a range of options.
With over 450 new wines launched to Majestic in the last 12 months, plus an updated range of beers, spirits and ciders, the move to return to free tasting means customers can expect to see plenty of bottles open to try for the first time in the coming weeks.
To enjoy free tasting in any Majestic store, customers need only head to the designated Tasting Counter in any branch. There they can try any of these wines which have been handpicked by the store team for tasting, either independently or with one of Majestic’s WSET trained expert staff.
