Event description

Description

To 'play hooky' is to be absent without permission. Who doesn’t want to knock off at noon for whisky?

This tour will incorporate the best of regional Victorian whisky and urban distilling in Melbourne.

Join us for a hearty two-course lunch with beer or wine in conversation with Timboon Railway Shed Distillery's owner and head distiller, Josh Walker. Lunch will include sampling of the Timboon range over tales of Victoria’s illicit whisky history. One lucky participant will win a $155 bottle of Timboon’s Port Expression 500ml (drawn from the tour group) while others enjoy discounted purchases in time for Christmas.

After lunch, we’ll visit Starward Distillery to hear directly from the man himself, founder David Vitale about his vision to produce an approachable, modern and distinctly Australian whisky. Starward’s Wine Cask edition was recently awarded Best Australian Single Malt at the 2017 World Whiskies Awards.

Enjoy VIP access at Starward’s impressive distillery in Port Melbourne, discover the whisky production process and enjoy a guided whisky tasting of Starward’s core range and special projects. The tour will end with a 'bottle your own' experience - hand bottling your own 200ml bottle of unique cask strength Starward whisky directly from the barrel.
