Whisky Masterclass - Starward (Aug 2019)

Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/EeeVdRzr)


It’s the idea of a modern, Australian whisky that drew us in…

David Vitale, founder of Starward, started off with a simple vision - to create a uniquely Australian whisky, that reflected his home town of Melbourne, and stood proud the world over.  Whilst the idea of an approachable, affordable Australian whisky - served neat or with food - seemed like a big leap of faith, David succeeded in pioneering  a distinctly Australian whisky that was all of the above and more.  

The result is indeed a modern Australian whisky, matured for three ‘Melbourne years’ in Australian wine barrels, that pushes the boundaries of what whisky can be...

So if you would like to drink better, not more, and celebrate this Australian craft brand, then this event was made with you in mind - winter, whisky, a night with friends - sounds like the perfect remedy for this time of year.

A friendly, fun and informative tasting night! You can tell Sacha from Starward is very passionate about the industry. It would have been nice to have the whisky available for sale right there, but I understand if maybe the venue doesn't carry the appropriate licence to sell alcohol/liquor on premises.

This was a really fun night. The live music was such a bonus, the whisky tasted great and the presenter was fun and knowledgable.
