With Greater Sydney in a state of 'Stay At Home' we're putting the brakes on our in-store tastings until we get this under control. But that doesn't mean we can't share great whisky.
Once again we've partnered with our great friends at That Boutique-y Whisky Company to host a virtual whisky tasting which you can join from anywhere in Australia.
At 7pm Tuesday 13 July we'll be going live with a 'World Whisky' tasting, trying four different whiskies from a curated set which was bottled and packaged in Scotland.
Will be going from England and Ireland to Germany (Bavaria) and the USA is an eclectic mix of whiskies from around the world, all with a unique story to and flavour to enjoy.
The tasting will be held virtually on Facebook and YouTube and you'll be able to tune in, drink along and ask questions as Boutique-y Simon McGoram and The Oak Barrel's Scott Fitzsimons take you through the line-up.
What We’ll Be Tasting
Boutique-y Irish Single Malt 8-Year-Old 45.7% (Ireland)
Boutique-y Slyrs 3-Year-Old 52.5% (Germany)
Boutique-y English Whisky Co 8-Year-Old 52.3% (England)
Boutique-y Heaven Hill 9-Year-Old 48.4% (USA)
Each pack contains 4x 50ml bottles - 200ml in total. We will use approximately 15mls per serve during the tasting, so there'll be plenty left over for you to go back to.
How The Tasting Will Work
Packs will be sold for $120 (including delivery).
We’ll be sending out those packs as soon as you order to ensure that we can get them everywhere they need to be.
Then on Tuesday 20 July 2021 Boutique-y Whisky Co Brand Ambassador Simon McGoram will be joined by The Oak Barrel’s Scott Fitzsimons to discuss the whiskies.
That will be live streamed through The Oak Barrel’s Facebook page as we field your comments and questions from around Australia.
To ensure your pack arrives in time, please order by Wednesday 7 July.
That said, the live stream video will be posted after the live event concludes - so you can do the tasting at your leisure.
