Australian Craft Spirits Masterclasses at Pialligo Estate, 28 and 28 September

These popular series, now into their second year, continue in with two events with Craft Gins of Australia on the 27th September and Whiskies of Australia on the 28th September. Limited to small groups, enjoy a gazing platter whilst sampling a flight of five or more craft spirits from my own collection from around Australia.

There’s a different line up each time and you’ll learn not just how they are made, but the stories behind the labels, they’re great fun as well!  You can watch this short clip about the experience on YouTube here.
