Event Information

THIS EVENT IS CURRENTLY FULLY BOOKED.

 

Two Bristol institutions, Pukka Herbs and Bart Ingredients will be welcoming a small group of members to learn about their hugely successful businesses.

 

The day will begin with a visit to Pukka founder and master herbalist, Sebastian Pole’s home.

 

Pukka will collect us from Bristol Temple Meads station at 10am and transport us to Sebastian's home about 30 minutes outside Bristol. Obviously, our day will begin with tea, taken in Sebastian’s yurt in his beautiful garden and an introduction to Pukka. This will be followed by a guided walk and talk of the garden learning about the herbs that go into the teas Pukka are so famous for. After the garden tour we head back to the yurt for a tea blending and tasting session followed by a light lunch.

 

Pukka will transport us back into the centre of Bristol and drop us at Bart Ingredients for 2.30pm.

 

At Bart Ingredients we will continue our flavour safari with an interactive and imaginative blending masterclass to show how the tastes of the world are created. The day will include a quick tour of the packing site to see the practical demands of bringing these products to market in action and will conclude with a review of the spice trade and how it has shaped the world.

 

The day will finish at approximately 5.30pm and Bart Ingredients is located a conveniently short 5-10 minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station.

 

We will also be running a visit to Hauser & Wirth in Bruton the following day and you should receive the details of that event in the next few days. If you would like to go to both events, it takes about an hour to drive from Bristol to Bruton; the Bruton area is abundant in b&bs.
