Event description


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ticket sales for this show have been suspended. We have a responsibility to the wider whisky community, and a decision on whether this event can proceed as planned, or be postponed until a later date, will be taken soon based on input from the government, the exhibitors, and you, the visitors to the show. We ask you to bear with us during this time of uncertainty, and your patience and understanding is appreciated.

The Whisky Show is the largest show of its kind in Australia, and features only whisky, and nothing but whisky. With over 30 brands and more than 150 different whiskies to sample and to buy, The Whisky Show Melbourne includes exciting new brands, and a pop-up shop offering an extensive range of whiskies at special show prices. All whiskies available for sampling are included in the cost of entry.

Each person receives a showbag with a tasting glass, bottle of water and a food pack, containing a sandwich, chips, cheese & crackers. Infinity bowls of pretzels are located at each water station in the halls. Please let us know if you have particular dietary requirements, so that we can cater for you accordingly.

There are three 4-hour sessions:

Saturday 8 August - Noon to 4.00pm

Saturday 8 August - 5.00pm to 9.00pm

Sunday 9 August - Noon to 4.00pm

The Show app, available at The Whisky List on iTunes and Android, will allow you to plan your visit to the stands, and rate the whiskies you try. It shows the floor plan, list of exhibitors and whiskies available at the Show. There will be no printed programme.
