The Indie Spirits Tasting is coming back to Sydney, after some successful stops in Brisbane and Perth earlier this year.

Taking place on Sunday the 16th of September, the Indie Spirits Tasting Sydney is back for its fourth year and will again be hosted at the stunning Restaurant Hubert. The event, which is now staged in both Perth and Brisbane as well, will feature over 40 exhibitors showcasing more than 150 craft spirits, with master distillers on hand and free seminars going deep into the world of independent spirits.

Tickets are just $55 (plus booking fee) or $35 if you get in early — it’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Ticket to the Indie Tasting include all the samples, a burger and fries and access to the seminars (first-in, best dressed). Click here to get your early-bird tickets now.
