March is approaching, and that means Irish whiskey is going to be a pouring, particularly on St Patrick’s Day. To celebrate the week of St Paddy’s, though, Sydney bar The Wild Rover is kicking things off with an Irish Whiskey Fair — and it’s all for a good cause.
They’ll be hosting two sessions on Monday the 13th of March — one in the afternoon, and one in the evening — at which you’ll be able to sample a whole raft of Irish whiskeys. Tickets are going from just $20 a pop, and all profits are being donated to Darkness Into Light, a charity which shines light on mental health issues, and first began in Ireland.
The afternoon session is put on with the hospo family firmly in mind — it runs from 3pm to 5pm, giving you plenty of time to have an adequate craic before getting to work.
