There is a lot to celebrate this month at Dida's

March sees the Herne Bay Yacht Club continue at Dida's Wine Lounge on Jervois Road.

What better place is there to sit in front of a big screen and support Team New Zealand as we race to keep the Cup in Aotearoa than in situ at Didas experiencing the delights of the Herne Bay Yacht Club.

For the occasion, there is a special new menu that has been crafted by Michael Ingham who started working at Dida's late last year, having previous been at top restaurants around Auckland. The new menu focuses on New Zealand seafood with a fresh lively vibe.

Alongside the new food menu there is a brilliant drinks selection, Piper Heidsieck Champagne is $20 a glass, Allan Scott’s beautiful special Black Label wines all $10 a glass. Try our cocktails, themed and super classic, New Zealand’s own Scapegrace Gin with Kiwi made East Imperial Tonic, the ultimate sailing rum Mount Gay matched with East Imperial Ginger Beer, and Gluten Free Tito’s Vodka with Tito’s on the Beach. All Cocktails are $12.

Every day there’s racing, the big screen will show it live from 3pm and we will be there cheering on Team New Zealand with you.

For Saint Patrick’s Day, it will be all about Irish whiskey at Didas - more specifically the award-winning whiskey’s from Teeling.

Irish Malts are Malt whiskeys produced from barley in the same way as Scotch, except it is generally triple distilled.

Irish whiskey has had a turbulent history. For a while there in the 19th century Irish whiskey reigned over Scottish hands down. What followed was a period of turmoil, though things are on the up fortunately and the future bright.

100% family owned and operated from Dublin by brothers Jack and Stephen Teeling, the Teeling Whiskey Co. is well-known for doing things a little differently, and their hand-crafted, small batch Irish whiskeys embody this entrepreneurial spirit, with no chill filtering or added colouring. Designed to be a bridge between standard blended whiskeys and the rarefied world of single malts, the Teeling philosophy is to create premium quality blends with unique flavour profiles. In February, not one, but three Teeling whiskeys won category awards at the 2021 World Whiskey Competition.
