Whisky Live Sydney

WHISKYLIVE is Sydney's whisky sampling event of the year,

 and this year will introduce other spirits, making it the Whisky Live and Fine Spirits tasting event.
There will be vodkas, gins, rums and cognacs in addition to a great line up of whisky.

  • Get to know a vast array of top-shelf whiskies and spirits from distilleries across the world.
  • Graze on an assortment of gourmet eats while tasting.
  • Surround yourself with people who share your passion for whisky and spirits.
  • Cultivate your whisky and fine spirits knowledge with expert instruction.

Whisky Live is an event for adults 18 and older.

WHISKY LIVE and FINE SPIRITS showcases a large selection of high-quality whiskies and spirits, all open for sampling. This event will suit the whisky lover as well as the gin, vodka, rum or other spirit lover. The event presents whiskies and spirits by brand, with an expert there to inform and educate as you taste. A quality spirits glass is supplied to keep, plus a tasting guide is supplied both at the event and available digitally a week before the event for download. The Guide lists all the whiskies and spirits for sampling and gives flavour profiles so you can select your preferred expressions and plan the order you would like to taste.

So, if you like whisky, gin, rum or vodka, Whisky Live and Fine Spirits is the place to discover them all. If you know someone who likes whisky, and you prefer gin, you should both come along as there will be lots for both of you to experience. Plus of course, there will be a selection of food to graze on while tasting. And at the end if you really like what you taste, you can purchase a bottle to take home. Whisky Live and Fine Spirits is a great event!

Rare & Old Bar - This bar has a fine selection of rare and old whiskies – high priced bottles or difficult to find. Here a 15ml sample may be purchased, allowing you to taste such whiskies at an affordable price. Sample a whisky from a closed distillery or a limited release from long ago. There's a good range with prices from $18.
