Melbourne’s Whisky & Alement – arguably Australia’s best whisky bar – is doing something a bit special this festive season. Whilst they’ve had their little ‘bottle shop’ going for a while – a cabinet where you can purchase a selection of bottles that you may have tasted behind the bar – they’re upping their game, just in time for Christmas.
For the first time in eight years they’re opening their cellar to the public and you’ll have the chance to pick up some seriously cool bottles. From 1 December through to 22 December, owner Julian White will be on hand to talk you through some of the rarities and hidden gems they’ve collected over the years.
A small sample of some of the bottles available to purchase are pictured here (courtesy of Whisky & Alement). Whether you’re after a gift for someone else, or a special bottle for yourself on Christmas night, I have no doubt they’ll be able to sort you out with an absolute beauty.
So if you’re in the area and looking for something a little bit special, get in touch and pick up something memorable this festive season!
