We've been putting out some teasers but now we can confirm that on 17 September, we're heading to Pocket Bar for a whisky tasting like no other in collaboration with whisky educators Dramnation.
Yes sir, for this tasting, you'll get to taste (and learn about!) a flight of whiskies neat. We'll be featuring the award winning Starward range of whiskies, including their much acclaimed New World Projects PX cask release. But taking it one step further, we'll be showing you how to manipulate those same whiskies in a series of hot & cold cocktails. Join us as we dispel the notion that whisky can only be drunk neat or on the rocks and see for yourself how when done right, a good whisky can really make a cocktail sing without losing its characteristic.
Paired with matching cleansers and light food from Pocket Bar, this session may or may not also also include a cocktail show involving fire and ice but you'll have to come along to find out! There's also going to be a mystery nip at the beginning that will test your perception of the category - all we can say is that this particular one is sold out nationally and not available anymore...........not even at the distillery itself.
So come join us! Early bird tickets are available until 9 September at $45 a head ($55 after 9 September) which includes the flight of whiskies, matching cocktails, welcome drink on arrival, that mystery nip. light food, good company, good education aaaand good entertainment.
