Blending whisky is the art of balance. In this session you’ll learn how whisky is made in Sydney’s only whisky distillery before being guided through the process of blending to produce a whisky with a flavour profile most suited to your palate. Each guest will leave with two 200ml bottles of their own signature blends.
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 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?
This entertaining, informative and rewarding session will offer guests the opportunity to blend their very own Scotch whiskies from a range of premium products. Participants will be able to take away their two creations in 200ml flasks. Instruction will be provided on how to construct a high quality whisky as well as a brief background on the craft of blending and how whisky is produced. Guests will be guided through our functioning distillery and offered samplings of the base ingredients as they progress through production.
