Warm your cockles with the vodka, whisky and rum tastings that are on offer this month. The Great Chase Tour lands at the Cosy Club where you can sample five vodka and gin based tipples.

Following the Love Wine Festival, it is the turn of independent wine merchants The Wine Connection, Wine Poole and Loki Wine will be showcasing hundreds of different producers to wine lovers in Northampton, Warwick and Birmingham in their annual Christmas tastings.
Food festivals are an indulgent affair in November, with the return of the Warwick Rocks Chocolate Festival and the inaugural Northampton Winter Food Festival, packed with artisan producers.
