Join us for a celebration of all things craft & whisky (two of our greatest passions) here at Work-Shop!
Enjoy a STARWARD whisky cocktail on arrival before joining in on some live demonstrations and interactive workshops with local jeweller Cassandra Gill and artist Nicole Black, who will showcase their skills and share their approach to crafting in the new age.
Then join Melbourne’s own STARWARD whisky for a casual nip of locally crafted single malt and discuss the imminent rise of Australian craft spirits.
Hear first-hand how Founder, David Vitale, went from e-learning professional to buying a still, renting an airport hangar and starting a new age whisky company, which has won World’s Best Craft Whisky in the global industry’s biggest competition.
Stick around for a chat and some Q&A afterwards!
We look forward to sharing the Starward vision with you in this exclusive evening of ‘craft unshackled from tradition’.
