The team at Australian Bartender magazine are proud to announce that the Hottest 100 Aussie Spirits countdown is returning this year after a smash hit launch in 2020. This year the countdown will be happening at Indie Spirits Tasting Sydney at the Potts Point Hotel on Sunday 4th September during Sydney Bar Week.

The countdown is dedicated to recognising the hard work of our many local distilleries around the country. 2021 winner was the Archie Rose Single Malt Whisky from the local Sydney distillery. 2020 winner, Never Never Distilling Co. Triple Juniper won in 2019. Both these products are shining examples of the amazing success of our local distillers and what they are achieving.
