Southern Whisky Trails

Vendor since 2017

With an enthusiasm for whisky and pride in Australia’s growing craft spirit industry, Southern Whisky Trails is exploring Victoria’s vibrant whisky scene – the distilleries embarking on first releases and gaining international recognition, and the fantastic whisky bars promoting them and sharing rich and subtle flavours from around the globe. We’re interested in the history of this aqua vita and the distilling process, learning about both new and time honoured techniques, and seeing Australia’s whisky story evolve. Whisky is the prism through which we explore the cities and the regions – the scenery, the local produce, distilling trends and the stories and people behind the craft.
