Almost 100 whiskies from 14 independent bottlers and selected distilleries from Australia and overseas will be on show this July in Port Melbourne.
Reeling off the success of last year’s event, the event will take place at the brand new Starward Distillery in Port Melbourne. The venue has a working distillery, a fully functional bar and seating area that allows guests to relax and savour their drinks.
The event will celebrate the exhibiting distilleries, which create drinks that are rare and often one-off.
Ben Baranow, founder of Independents Day, says: “Even though brands often pass on unconventional barrels to ensure consistency, independent bottlers can highlight their individuality and celebrate the whisky’s unique traits”.
Food trucks Fancy Hank Road House and Corny Mexican will make an appearance to satisfy your hunger. Tickets include entry, one Glencairn whisky glass, food, and samples from each exhibitor.
Broadsheet has some free double passes to give away. Details are available on our Instagram page.
