Whisky specialist Tomoka Fine & Rare is hosting a luxury whisky tasting evening on Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 March – where you will have the chance to sample five whiskies worth over £1,200 in total! During the evening, which will be held at Tomoka’s intimate tasting room, a representative from each brand will join virtually to talk guests through the individual drams and the stories behind them. Gin more your thing? Later in the month – on 24 March – Tomoka will also be hosting a gin tasting event, which will include a selection of fine gins, tonics and garnishes to sample.
The whisky tasting event will take place between 6.30pm-8pm at Tomoka Fine & Rare at The Royal Exchange. Tickets cost £59 each and are available to purchase through Eventbrite. Tickets for the gin tasting event coming soon.
In a first for The Royal Exchange, we have teamed up with award-winning dating app Inner Circle to host an extravagant one-off socialising evening on Wednesday 30 March. The event is open to around 300 members of Inner Circle – and tickets are selling like hotcakes!

LOVE THE CITY
Get your culture fix at The Royal Exchange this month with an exclusive exhibition from Instagram duo Pretty Little London.

BECAUSE THE NIGHT
The romance and beauty of twilight is the inspiration behind a dreamy new collection from Jo Malone London. As the company’s global head of fragrance, Céline Roux explains: ‘I’ve always thought that there is something fascinating about the transition from daytime to night-time… Whether you’re going out or nestling in at home, those are the moments when you can truly start to relax, to escape and to dream.’ The Night Collection is designed to create a calm and magical mood with two different varieties – Lavender & Moonflower and Moonlit Camomile – available in pillow mists, candles, colognes and diffusers.
Prices vary. Discover the Night Collection for yourself in-store from 8 March at Jo Malone London at The Royal Exchange.

What’s more, Ladurée has created a special bespoke gift box, the Women’s Day Smart Works Box, featuring Napoleon III-inspired decoration and a mix of 8 macarons, some featuring the Smart Works logo and icons. For every box sold, Ladurée will donate £2 to Smart Works. A fantastic way to show your solidarity with women this month.

ON THE ROCKS
As well as International Women’s Day, we also have Mother’s Day at the end of March. The Royal Exchange has curated a special gift guide full of bright ideas (which you’ll find here) but, if you want to tell a special woman in your life just how much they mean to you, fine jeweller Tateossian suggests doing so with diamonds. Not just any old diamonds, but the striking and irregular black and white diamonds that make up Tateossian’s Pebble edit. These beautifully crafted earrings, necklace and rings are made from sterling silver with a fluid crossover pattern studded with sparkling black and white diamonds. A real treasure.
Prices vary, discover unique jewellery as well as an engraving services at Tateossian at The Royal Exchange.
