and this year is BIGGER & better.
Independent’s Day 2017 will showcase both uncommon single malts selected by independent bottlers and a hand chosen selection of unique whiskies, from Scotland, Australia and around the world. Most of the whiskies on taste at Independent’s Day are one-offs, or small batches, so once they’re gone, they’re gone for good.
While most publicly available spirits are branded by their producers, independent bottlers draw on stock from a range of distilleries; defunct and active. These nomad brands roam distilleries and the lucrative cask brokerage market for interesting single barrels to create unique, one-off or small batch expressions. Even though brands often pass on unconventional barrels to ensure consistency, independent bottlers can highlight their individuality and celebrate the whisky’s unique traits.
With the rise of whisky popularity in recent times, new whisky distilleries are emerging around the world and many of them are producing award winning whisky. Some of these will be on taste this year.
Independent’s Day will take place at the brand new Starward Distillery in Port Melbourne. With a larger floor space, a whisky garden area for guests to relax with food provided by one of Melbourne’s great food trucks, and a dedicated bar which will offer cocktails especially designed for the event.
Saturday 22nd July
Session 1: 12pm – 3pm
Session 2: 4pm – 7pm
50 Bertie Street
