A now firmly ensconced Sydney Whisky Fair tradition, we’re glad to confirm that Heartwood and Tasmanian Independent Bottlers Tim & Louie Duckett will return to The Oak Barrel for a Whisky Fair masterclass in 2019.
This year Tim and son Louie will take us on his latest Trails Through Tasmania – or Tim’s Triple-T – as we take a wide-ranging look into the current state and future of Australia’s most internationally renowned whisky regions.
Duckett is one of Australia’s highest regarded whisky bottlers – and probably Australia’s first real indie bottler. The heart and mind behind the Heartwood series of whiskies and the newer Tasmanian Independent Bottlers series, Tim will return to the Oak Barrel cellar room to catch us up on the latest moves and shakes down south.
Alongside new releases from his two labels we’ll also sample some things that the Ducketts are excited about on the apple isle, all the way from new make to finished products. In total we'll sample eight or nine drams from Tim's bag of tricks.
Extremely limited, and one night only.
In the lead up to the sold-out Sydney Whisky Fair 2019 The Oak Barrel will be hosting a number of ‘Fair Masterclasses’. These will provide an opportunity to get up close and personal with brands and distilleries, with plenty of time to mull over drams and ask plenty of questions. We run them as satellite events so you’re not drawn away from the tables during the main event and so you have plenty of time with each whisky without the allure of other shiny things!
