Leading figures from across the West and North Yorkshire financial community came together at an exclusive client networking event hosted by the Leeds office of specialist recruiters Sharp Consultancy.
Eighteen invited guests including finance directors and chief financial officers of listed plcs, owner managers of some of the region’s growing SMEs, partners from accountancy firms and investment directors from private equity institutions gathered at the home of Slingsby gin to enjoy The Spirit of Harrogate event.
The innovative two and half hour gin experience was hosted by mixologists from the award-winning gin producers who expertly guided guests through an insightful history of gin and spirit based drinks sharing their knowledge of the origins and development of the fashionable tipple as well as its influence on society and popular culture.
With a collection that houses more than 120 different varieties of gin, attendees took the opportunity to enjoy a selection of samples which were paired with delicious canapés.
Mike Ball, who hosted the event on behalf of Sharp Consultancy, said: “This was the perfect opportunity to do something a little different and offered our guests a great way to catch up and make new connections – as well as expand their knowledge on the vast array of gin varieties. The feedback which we have received has been overwhelmingly positive with guests commenting on how much they enjoyed the relaxed and informative evening.”
