On Sunday May 26, the Indie Spirits Tasting returned to Brisbane — and Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall — for what was to be the best Indie Spirits Tasting event we’ve ever hosted — what a cracking afternoon it was.

The Indie Spirits Tasting is hosted by Australian Bartender magazine, and this year saw the fourth staging of the event in Brisbane. The event is a showcase for craft distillers from around the country as well as boutique distributors bringing in interesting indie brands from around the world.

Indie Spirits Tasting Brisbane saw more than 375 people — both consumers and trade — making their way through the doors throughout the afternoon.

Our big thanks go out to Josh and the team at Lefty’s for helping to make this year’s event the best ever!

The Indie Spirits Tasting is a travelling roadshow, and that means our next stop is Perth on July 17th — you can get earlybird tickets now at indiespiritstasting.com.au.

Take a look at the gallery above — thanks to the indomitable Declan Roache for the great images — and keep an eye on indiespiritstasting.com.au for our events in Perth (July) and Sydney (during Sydney Bar Week in September), with dates in 2020 in Melbourne and Brisbane to be confirmed.
