Regional whisky experience

Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/3eDH3hYr)


We're getting out of town just for the day, and looking forward to experiencing the best of Victoria's scenery, local produce, craft beer and whisky! 

Our journey will begin with a morning coffee in Melbourne, followed by a hearty brunch en route to Prickly Moses, where we will enjoy a brewery tour and beer or cider tasting, and learn about the 'wash' used in Timboon Railway Shed Distillery's exceptional whisky. 

In Timboon, we will enjoy a two-course lunch (with a beer or wine) at the distillery. We will learn about the whisky making process, tour the secret bond store (where the whisky lives!), and sample a range of whisky & liqueurs. We will then head to Timboon Fine Ice Cream for "Sundae School" - an ice-cream making class of whisky caramel ripple. 

We will meet at 7:15am for morning coffee at Market Lane Coffee, 109-111 Therry Street, Melbourne, for a prompt 8:00am departure. You will be returned to the city at 5:45pm. What better place to end the tour than at Whisky and Alement, Australian Whisky Bar of the Year 2017.

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.
