Whisk(e)y on the Rocks: a new tasting show in Sydney this week

Yakusan and The Rocks are hosting ‘Whisk(e)y on The Rocks’ this week and it’s an event people can actually attend. It’s catered to first-timers right through to the most sophisticated whisky-lover. The festival will celebrate the return of consumer experiences to Sydney, while supporting local businesses and hospitality operators as COVID-19 restrictions continue to ease.

Running from Thursday 19 – Sunday 22 November, Sydneysiders can enjoy exploring Australia’s oldest precinct as it transforms to host incredible experiences from the world’s best whiskies. Inspired by festivals from around the world including Dark Mofo in Tasmania and Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, Whisk(e)y on The Rocks is a roaming festival held throughout The Rocks precinct, where Sydneysiders will be immersed in the diverse world of whisk(e)y.

Gilles Merry, Festival Founder and Managing Director of Yakusan said: “Working in collaboration with The Rocks, the concept was born out of our desire to support the hospitality industry and to get Sydney back on the go again. The support from our partners has been fantastic and we have a truly unique Whisk(e)y Festival offering that has had great pick up from Sydneysiders and is on track to be a sell out. We see this inaugural event becoming Sydney’s premier Whisky Festival introducing the world of Whisk(e)y to newcomers and Whisk(e)y lovers alike.”
