The Concept

The Black Bottle

The Black Bottle: where new and familiar red, white and rosé wines are available by the glass. A selection of 32 of our 140 strong bottle cellar are dispensed through our Enomatic dispensers. Each of  our four machines hold 8 bottles with machines dedicated exclusively to red and white varieties. This means that at any one time we have a wide range of red, white and rosé to sample by the glass.  Our machines are individually  programmed to serve our specific varieties of wine at their optimum temperature: an ambient room temperature for reds and a gentle chill for whites and rose, allowing all of our wines to express their flavours fully.

The Black Bottle

So, how does it all work? Upon entering the bar you will be offered one of our unique Black Bottle Wine Dispensing Cards. The card is free, our gift to you, and is immediately available to charge with the funds required to sample, drink or (occasionally!) knock back as much wine you see fit. Once you have loaded a card you will able to access all of the machines. Simply insert the card into the machine, grab a glass and choose your measure.  On the machine’s touch screens will be displayed the option of serving yourself a glass in 3 sizes: a 25 ml. taster, a 125 ml. small glass and a 175 ml. large glass. Our cellar has something for everyone, from true wine connoisseurs to people who just want to learn a bit about wine. Whether sampling a few wines before dinner or settling down for an afternoon with a good book and a glass of your favourite, The Black Bottle is the perfect place to relax.
