We will start out with the basics of what makes whisky...well, whisky! (You don't need to know anything to enjoy this tour. You just need an open mind and adventurous spirit!) We will start at a real distillery to go over how whisky is made. At that first stop I'll give guests a little history of whisky in Australia and how it made its way up to Melbourne. Next, we will next stop over at a moonshine distillery not far from the first stop. We'll learn a bit about a different type of whisky and share some of the colourful stories of the burgeoning whisky culture here. Then, we will hop over to the city to check out the oldest whisky bar in Melbourne and taste a few things from around the world. Trust me, you won't be disappointed by the selection! Last we will finish up at an awesome tucked away bar with a great whisky list and out of this world cocktails (and food). *This tour can be tailored a bit to suit specific requests. There are no shortage of amazing whisky bars around Melbourne!
Ren Butler is a passionate whisky nerd from way back. Her special knack for making whisky education fun, approachable and engaging has helped her run successful whisky events for The Whisky Social for the past two years around Melbourne and Brisbane. Having read everything she can on the subject as well as visited distilleries all over Scotland, the U.S., Japan and Australia, she is highly knowledgeable about a LOT of different types of whiskies. More importantly, what she doesn't know she won't B.S. you on. She'll just chase down any answer for you no matter how difficult!
Snacks Drink discounts provided at each stop. We will be sure to have some simple nibbles on offer through the tour. Nothing…
We will be going to Starward Distillery, Melbourne Moonshine, Whisky & Alement, and Beneath Driver Lane. The first two are active distilleries within a close distance to the CBD and trend setters in the whisky category here in Australia. Starward is a multi-award winning single malt distillery and the largest of its kind here. The two bars we finish up with represent the foundations and the future of whisky bar culture here.
