The Star Theatre Whisky Tasting experience is set for September - Let’s wax lyrical with whisky.
The Tasmanian Showcase whisky for September is from 7k Distillery. Having already produced quality Tasmanian gin spirits, 7k recently released their first Tasmanian Single Malt whisky…and promptly sold out all 200 first release bottles online from their five cask expressions in less than three days! Their second release will no doubt go fast too, so come along for your opportunity to try one of Tasmania’s newest whiskies.
The evening will then focus on single malts from the Clynelish Distillery in Scotland, famously a major component of the Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve Blend.
The night will end with a single malt, single cask, natural cask strength Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) dram not available in stores, and Tom Rofe our Tassie resident and past SMWS Ambassador at ‘The Vaults’ in Edinburgh, will kindly guest present.
Alex Moores, State Manager VIC/TAS of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society - Australian Branch, will again video link into the event to provide his deep cut insights to the SMWS whisky and the feature Scottish distillery.
