It's time we fired up The Oak Barrel tasting room once again to share whisky with all you lovely people and we're kicking off in a big way with some gorgeous, old whisky from our friends at That Boutique-y Whisky Company.

One of Scotland’s most prolific independent bottlers, Boutique-y share an ethos with The Oak Barrel that whisky is meant to be drunk, whisky is meant to be fun. Known for their bright labels and excellent juice, they have bottled most distilleries in Scotland and are increasingly expanding to include whiskies from around the world – which is where this series of Australian whiskies fits in.

Their limited-edition labels are designed by Emily Chappell and reference interesting elements (or in-jokes) about the distillery. Their batches, which can be single casks or married from a number of casks, are bottled at the strength they deem the whisky is most enjoyable at.

The Oak Barrel will be graced with the presence of TBWC's Simon McGoram for the evening to take us through these amazing pieces of history.

Unfortunately due to delays in stock arrivals, this will be an in-store event only.

We will be adhering to strict social distancing and Covid-19 safety measures and working to a reduced capacity in our tasting room.

This is a ticketed, sit-down event and as such you will need to provide proof of Covid-19 double vaccination for entry.

THE OAK BARREL’S 2021 WHISKY TASTING SEASON

In 2021 The Oak Barrel will once again host a series of intimate, enjoyable and wide-ranging whisky tastings, but now they’ll be over a few different formats.

Our in-person tastings will return to our Cellar Room, which will now be capped to 20. This will not only ensure the safety of customers and staff, but also ensure that the events are as comfortable and as intimate as they can be.

These tastings will encompass a wide range of whisky themes, from the classic ‘Whisky Appreciation’ nights to nights based around specific countries, regions, styles, distilleries and bottlers. Hosted by in-house whisky educator Scott Fitzsimons, we’ll also welcome special guests from all around the country to present in front of you.

This does not mean the end of our successful virtual tastings, however. With international travel still uncertain, we’ll be calling upon international guests to join us in a virtual capacity. In these cases we’ll make up tasting kits, which can either be sent around Australia or picked up and enjoyed in store with us in front of the big screen.

We look forward to a big year of sharing great drams through 2021, the 65th anniversary of The Oak Barrel.

The Oak Barrel is one of Sydney's oldest bottle shops and has been an icon of the Sydney fine drinks scene since its establishment in 1956. It has been named the Icons Of Whisky Single Outlet Of The Year and Australian Liquor Industry Awards Bottle Store Of The Year on multiple occasions.

It is the promoter of renowned whisky events including Sydney Whisky Fair, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2019, and Sydney Whisky Forum, the virtual replacement in 2020.
