The Sampler still sells exclusive wines by the glass in small portions

A while back we wrote about the odd rule in the UK that prohibits selling wine by the glass in small measures. Some wine merchants and wine bars had started to offer very exclusive wines in “tasting sample” sizes that were not the regulation size wine glass but, we were told, had had to stop that since servings were not according to the rules. One of the wine merchants we mentioned was The Sampler and they have now corrected us on this. They still serve wines by-the-glass in small portions to allow customers to taste very expensive wines at reasonable prices – so perhaps a place worth trying if you want to discover some interesting wines. But we don’t know how it works: are they ignoring the rules or have the rules changed? If you go there perhaps you can ask them and then tell us…
