A Gentleman's Guide to Evening Etiquette

EVENING ETIQUETTE

A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE



LOOK THE PART



A true gentleman dresses the part. A lack of knowledge here could be the birth of all kinds of disaster before even leaving the house. He should have a look so sharp he could butcher a songbird with it.

WALK THE WALK



Show your class. A true gent greets the host and waiter by name. He doesn't eat his oysters with a soup spoon. He understand the menu and knows the difference between the rib eye and the sirloin steak.

TIP:

TOASTING



The cosmopolitan gentleman toasts with his guests in their native tongue.



French: Sante

Spanish: Salud

Hebrew: L'chaim

German: Prosit

Japanese: Kanpai



MASTER THE BAR



A discerning gentleman knows his Ardbeg from his Monkey Shoulder and his Glenfiddich from his Yamazaki. For those more acquainted with a JD and Coke, here's a guide to drinking Whisky.



DO



Take your time - a connoisseur doesn't rush his aperitifs and digestifs. Good whisky flavours linger on the palate for hours



Ask for a 'wee dram' - an old-school Scottish word meaning "a measure"



Gently swirl and smell - be careful with the first sniff mind



Add a splash of water - this opens up the flavours and gives your palette a chance to taste them



DON'T



Don't dismiss blends as inferior whiskies - Some of the best whiskies in the world are blended e.g. Johnnie Walker Blue Label



Don't drink whisky with your meal - Whisky is best enjoyed as an aperitif or digestif



Use mixers - this is the best way to ruin a good whisky



Drive home - it only takes a few wee drams to put you well over the legal limit
