Who is Bad Frankie?

Bad Frankie is named after the infamous Governor of Van Diemen’s Land, John Franklin, who outlawed small pot stills in the early 19th Century. Unfortunately, this law was written into national law when the country was federated.

It wasn’t until 150 years later when the ‘grandfather of Australian spirits’ Bill Lark overturned the law and had started to produce his own whisky. From Bill, the industry has expanded exponentially and continues to do so into a range of Australian spirits, whiskey, gin, vodka, liqueurs and so on.

Pleasant professional individual. Sebastian is a true publican, a master of his trade. He is a charasmatic, fresh individual, with sound knowledge of the local/national spirit movement. If you are looking to gain a further insight into the realms of Australia's alcohols, then look no further. And the jaffals?! Amazing. Do yourself a favour and get on down to these events.

The class was amazing. Informative, engaging and really interesting. I have already recommended it to a number of people. Great value for money too. Thanks

This was a great class. Lots of interesting information and good tips for appreciating gin. Seb was a fantastic host who was generous with his time and knowledge. The jaffle was delicious and we stuck around afterwards to sample some of Bad Frankie's fantastic drinks selection and try some more of those jaffles!
