About this Event

Haven't heard of us? Check out our reviews here!

It's a new season; we're all fired up and ready to hit every part of flavour country, from the ocean to the forest.

Whisky Uncovered has always put fun at the top of our agenda. And we've found ourselves gravitating to like-minded individuals time and time again; individuals such as Nelly Robinson, chef and owner at nel. Restaurant - arguably the 'funnest' person in food.

Breathing new life into Sydney’s dining scene, nel. is pioneering a global-infused culinary experience that has set Sydneysiders’ tastebuds alight. Spearheading the kitchen, chef Nelly and his team are widely celebrated for their unique dining experience. Nelly’s robust understanding and appreciation of the best produce is showcased in every dish and is guaranteed to throw guests into a food frenzy.

Guests at our November experience have all this and more to look forward to. Partnering with Glenfiddich Australia ambassador Ross Blainey, the experience is based around the journey a stag may take from the edge of the vast, cooling ocean to the centre of a rich, dense forest. Chef Nelly's food and accompanying spirits will be curated to reflect this creative idea.

We're laying down a spectacular 5-course whisky and food pairing menu, plus welcome cocktails, paired canapés, all wrapped up in Whisky Uncovered's signature afternoon experience! Plus a few of our trademark surprises, of course.

So don't miss out; early bird pricing applies until October 16th. Book now!
