This is one for the adventurous drinker! As part of Good Food Month, return to nature in this interactive experience in this event co-hosted by us and Dramnation. First up, we'll meet at 9 am at Wynyard in the city to hop on a private bus that will take us to a beachside location near Manly for a foraging workshop led by expert forager Diego Bonetto. Diego will take you through the basics of foraging to discover a natural pantry located on your doorstep. Then armed with that knowledge we will be taken by private bus to Sydney's newest distillery, Manly Spirits Co. Distillery to find out how they put foraged botanicals from the local area to good use in making some of the finest spirits around before we taste the spirit. Finally we end up in a brewery in the area to explore the similarities in the process of beer and spirits making. This is truly a sea to still experience like no other!
Ticket price includes private charter between Sydney* and Manly, all tours and tastings.
*For those who live in the Northern Beaches and do not wish to travel to the city for the 9 am pickup, please contact us when booking so that we can organise either a close pickup or meet up at the beach location.
Note: Please wear sensible shoes and attire suitable for traipsing around the beaches and surrounded areas. This event will take place in all weather conditions, save for extreme conditions where a warning has been issued by the relevant local weather bureau that it is unsafe to be outdoors. We will let you know if that is the case and the event has to be cancelled.

Sydney Cocktail Club was founded to provide a platform for drinks enthusiasts in Sydney, to meet up and indulge their thirst for learning about all things spirits and cocktails.
Our goal is simple: connect like-minded imbibers in a social setting, and provide an avenue for those who love their drinks, and a chance to discover more about the stuff that goes into their libation of choice.
There's plenty of events out there targeted at improving knowledge within the trade, and the aim of the club is to bring some of these events to the discerning consumer - from beginners through to the intermediate and the advanced. We're not driven by the marketing agenda of any particular brand and are simply here to spread the love of alcoholic spirits, from the ever popular ones such as gin through to the obscure.
