Small Batch Bourbon Masterclass

Our first masterclass for the year is something special - a blind Bourbon tasting led by Australia’s first official Bourbon Steward, our good friend, Joe Rotella.

Thursday 28th March

6:30pm - 8:30pm

We’re excited about this one!

From fields of corn and rye, forged in the flames of Prohibition, the story of Bourbon is one of legend and legacy.

  Joe will guide the tasting of five bourbons that showcase the diversity of this liquid Americana. Alongside tasty nibbles.


This is the official launch event for Small Batch Sessions - which provides small groups with an opportunity to discover (or maybe rediscover) Bourbon in intimate and independent masterclass sessions. Follow Joe on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @smallbatchmelb

One lucky person attending will win a signed copy of Fred Minnick's Bourbon Curious.


Discover the history of Bourbon, together with the styles, techniques, and traditions that make it a classic spirit.
