Artisan Distillers of Regional Australia - Masterclass presented by Nip of...
Tue. 18 October 2016, 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm AEDT
Some of Australia’s most remote and isolated distillers will travel hundreds of kilometres to gather in Sydney for the first time ever, for this unique spirits masterclass at Grain Bar.
Join this exclusive event celebrating Australian-made craft rum, whisky and gin, and meet the fascinating characters behind the spirits.
Hear stories from Australia’s first female rum distiller, the sixth generation Tasmanian farmer who coopers his own barrels at the country’s first rye distillery, the mechanic turned whisky distiller, and the man behind Western Australia’s oldest continuously operating legal distillery.
Sample a selection of fine spirits and canapés during a masterclass led by master distillers from Belgrove, Stone Pine, McHenry, Hoochery, Blackgate, Loch and Corowa distilleries, thanks to Australian spirit distributor, Nip of Courage.
