Whisky Masterclass with Starward (August 2019)

  • The Windsor Workshop Level 1, 115 Chapel Street Windsor, VIC, 3181 Australia (map)

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.

Over a casual conversation about STARWARD, whisky and craft spirits we will discuss…

  • A brief history of whisky in Australia

  • STARWARD and the craft whisky revolution

  • Some conventional and unconventional ways to enjoy whisky

  • And we will listen to the sweet sounds of South of Samois a Gypsy Jazz Quartet who will play live for us on the night
