Yep, finally. Indie Spirits Tasting is making its Melbourne debut on March 31 at The Craft & Co. in Collingwood. Click here to buy your tickets now. The event, which is in its fifth year and is staged in Brisbane, Perth and Sydney features over 40 exhibitors showcasing more than 150 craft spirits, with master distillers on hand to discuss their brand and snacks included with the ticket price.
The Indie Spirits Tasting seminars have been a big hit for those who are keen to delve a little deeper into the world of craft spirits. It’s first-in, best-dressed so get in early for your chance to see the following talks in Melbourne:
1pm – 1.30pm – Distilling 101
Come and check out The Craft & Co’s still and get the lowdown on how your favourite spirits are made. How does distillation work? What is vapour distilling, what are we talking about when talk pot and column stills? Get answers to those and more at Distilling 101.
2pm – 2.30pm – Amaro: a little bit of bitter makes your drinking better
Amari. They’re the Italian-inspired spirits that are making their way around the world, and Aussie distillers are adapting them to suit local ingredients; find out why a little bit of bitterness makes flavour pop, where these bitter aperitif drinks came from and more.
4pm – 4.30pm – Sustainability – the ethics of buying artisanal
Small is beautiful, right? You want craft, you want rare, and you’ll pay top dollar to get it — but where does the money go? Does making spirits the traditional way mean ruling out development? Is the spirits industry destroying the environment?
5pm – 5.30pm – Distilling 101
Come and check out The Craft & Co’s still and get the lowdown on how your favourite spirits are made. How does distillation work? What is vapour distilling, what are we talking about when talk pot and column stills? Get answers to those and more at Distilling 101
