Excited is one word you could use to describe our feelings in announcing the start of our 2021 Whisky Tasting Season. Delighted, overjoyed, joyous and jubilant are other ones. 

The Season will feature the return of our classic ‘Whisky Appreciation’ nights, while also rolling out a series of themed events. One major change for 2021 is that we’ll be capping the events at 20 people, to create relaxed, comfortable and intimate environments to share great drams in.

To kick off, there’s was really only one theme we could really consider: two nights of "We’re Back!" Featuring a mixture of favourite whiskies and ones we’ve been dying to try with you from across 2020. There’ll be two editions of the "We’re Back’ tastings, this is the international edition.

Hosted by The Oak Barrel’s Whisky Educator Scott Fitzsimons.

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

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.
