Get Tipsy After Dark At Kew Gardens' Stunning Temperate House

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Kew Gardens.

How does sampling wine and beer from around the world, while surrounded by over 10,000 rare plants and tropical flowers sound?

After five years of painstaking restoration work, The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew recently unlocked the wrought iron doors of the glorious Temperate House. And to celebrate, this Autumn it plays host to a very special tasting evening. That means you can be one of the first inside the world's largest Victorian glasshouse at night.

The best part? When there, you get to travel around the globe in 80 sips.

From New Zealand whites, to South American rose, to Asian beer, there are over 18 temperate zone tipples for you to choose from. Experts are on hand to teach you about cultivating grape and grain in these regions and the effect of climate on taste as you explore their wonderfully diverse flora.

Pretty safe to say it's got your boring local boozer beat.

As the sun sets over southwest London, the world's largest Victorian glasshouse is illuminated in spectacular fashion for the first time in over half a decade. If that's not the perfect opportunity to capture some Insta-worthy content, then you're doing it all wrong.

Temperate Tipples takes place 6pm-9.30pm on Friday 12 October and Saturday 13 October at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Tickets cost £25 and include five wine and beer samples of your choice. Buy them here.
