THE SPRITS OF MELBOURNE
Whisky Bars and Gin Joints is a rollicking adventure from Victoria’s early spirit making past to its modern craft scene.
- Bars: You’ll stop for tastings at three of Melbourne’s coolest whisky and gin bars, including Melbourne’s oldest dedicated whisky bar and the only distillery in the CBD.
- Tastings: You’ll taste the liquor and learn about the history of each spirit. Tastings at each bar consist of either a whisky or gin flight (10 separate spirits!)
- History: You’ll learn about the Ned Kelly of Victorian whisky, how Victoria led whisky & gin production in the 19th and early 20th century, and fun facts about the rich global history of whisky and gin.
- Tour Host: Our brilliant tour host will take care of every detail – from making the bookings to ordering the drinks!
This tour is run by our legendary mates at Drinking History Tours. We wouldn’t recommend them if they weren’t awesome!
