Around the World As a Drop of Whisky
Tue. 6 June 2017, 5:30 pm – 8:15 pm AEST
Your ticket includes:
- 5 tastes of top-shelf whiskies
- and conversation
Whisky is the most complex, time-consuming and well-connected spirit of them all.
This attracts a certain type of person to both produce and consume it. From irreverent Irish moonshiners to our very own Australian distillers, the global culture of whisky/ey is one of rebellious chemists, entrepreneurs, and community builders. That’s something we’ll drink to! Join us for an evening of sensory story telling as we take you around the world from the perspective of a glass of whisky.
Where did humans first learn to cultivate the barley we now depend on for most single-malt scotch whisky? What gives whisky a smokey or earthy flavour? How many countries produce whisky/ey around the world? What are the cultural practices around drinking and sharing whisky globally? What is the future of whisky as the world changes? We’ll talk about all of these and then some. Bring your questions. Be prepared to nerd out. This is a whisky safe space to explore, taste, test and question everything!
The Whisky Social is dedicated to encouraging diversity and inclusion within the whisky community and beyond. Our events are designed to appeal to the whisky neophyte as well as the seasoned dram sipper. The only pre-requisite is an open mind and desire to learn (and hopefully drink a little bit). With ample, tasty food on hand as well as copious water drinking encouraged, we make sure you can enjoy all the lovely whiskies without being sub-par for work the next day.
We're thrilled to be hosted by Florence Guild for this event.
