East End Cellars Masterclass: Gold Medal Whisky
Cheers to Australian whisky! Taste the nation’s best – with guidance from expert judges – in a masterclass sure to deliver solid gold.
You’ll be treated to a selection of top-ranked whiskies from the 2020 Tasting Australia Spirit Awards presented by Master Cask. Sample a selection and delve into the qualities that set them apart. Discover the diverse styles Australian whisky is now being made in, and how producers are managing to achieve impressively high quality in each.
Leading this masterclass tasting will be three of the awards’ judges. Master Cask proprietor Darren Lange will explore the importance of oak in maturing whisky and enhancing its flavour, sharing insights on the differences in barrels sourced from South Australia, Tasmania and further afield.
Graham Wright from The Odd Whisky Coy is a fellow guru, with a business that imports international whiskies three times a year. He’ll discuss Australia’s burgeoning whisky scene and share stories from years sourcing single malt.
Winemaker Stephen Pannell (SC Pannell, McLaren Vale) will also join the action. His imaginative wines continue to win fans — so what does he favour when it comes to spirits?
