The master blender’s craft is often taken for granted. Yet a moment’s pause should be taken to appreciate the position of the master blender. Here is a job in which tinkering with samples of whisky is not merely a bonus but a day to day necessity. If that job description sounds appealing to you then why not step into the shoes of a master blender for an evening?

Participants will be able to take away their two creations in 200ml flasks.

Rich, dark, brooding and intense. These can be the unique qualities of whisky matured in Sherry casks.

The increasing rarity, cost and flavour impact of high quality sherry casks has been the topic of debate amongst whisky connoisseurs for some time. Those drinkers in the know can attest that the availability and affordability of these delectable drams has waned in recent years making way for the elegance of the Bourbon cask. Yet there are rare whiskies which still celebrate the intense profiles of yesteryear.

This masterclass will explore some of these highly sought after Sherried whiskies and the idiosyncratic distilleries that produce them. Only a handful of bottles of the whiskies on taste are available in Australia.

This session will be led by Archie Rose Master Distiller Dave Withers, a renowned spirits authority and whisky expert who has led countless masterclasses, spirits trainings, and large-scale tasting events.

Australian Whisky Masterclass

Join our Production Manager Dave Withers as he guides an intimate group of guests around five whiskies that have helped to put Australian distillation on the map. This class will suit beginners and long term whisky fans alike.

Please note: No physical tickets will be shipped (your name will simply be added to our guestlist) & we cannot offer refunds but will happily reschedule your booking given at least 14 days notice.

Australian whisky has in recent years gained a great deal of attention. With awards, accolades and positive reviews coming from all corners of the globe, the term ‘Australian whisky’ has become a calling card for quality.

Yet quality Australian whiskies are not a new phenomenon. The Australian whisky movement has been building for years with many distillers producing classy and idiosyncratic spirits. Home grown distilleries are not merely a celebration of the craft of whisky making but embrace the unique climate and resources of the place they are made.

This masterclass will explore some of the distillers and producers who have forged their own path to acclaim. The five expressions on highlight the unique stories, visions and philosophies of their producer.

This session will be led by Archie Rose Production Manager Dave Withers, a renowned spirits authority and whisky expert who has led countless masterclasses, spirits trainings, and large-scale tasting events.

Please note that a light dinner will be provided.

  • Lark Classic Cask
  • Overeem Sherry Cask

Boilermaker Masterclass

This class aims to turn stuffy masterclasses on their heads. Production Manager Dave Withers and Venue Manager Harriet Leigh have combined their powers to match 5 Whiskies to 5 Beers, to 5 bar snacks. This informal yet intimate evening celebrates the ultimate in public house fine dining – the boilermaker and nibble.

Please note: No physical tickets will be shipped (your name will simply be added to our guestlist) & we cannot offer refunds but will happily reschedule your booking given at least 14 days notice.

The boilermaker is often mistakenly thought of as an unsophisticated choice at the bar. However the marriage of beer and whisky not only stems from it’s very genetics – the products of fermented grain - but also from flavour. The two make perfect companions at the bar. Archie Rose Master Distiller Dave Withers and Head of Hospitality Harriet Leigh started this project as a boilermaker list, from there it grew into a masterclass pairing whisky and beer. The addition of bar snacks was inevitable.

The process of deciding on what works well is one both Dave and Harriet take seriously. It is far more difficult than it looks. They can often be spotted at the Archie Rose bar working well after office hours tweaking the pairings.

This evening promises to be fun, interactive, engaging and rowdy. Not your ordinary masterclass.
