“Whisky and Alement is now a whisky bar that rivals the best in the world in terms of both its offering and its atmosphere. All the bartenders in this world class drinking venue possess the knowledge to lead you on a journey of discovery.” Broadsheet

We’ve been serving Melbourne’s thirst for whisky since 2010.

Our ever-changing menu of over 1000 whiskies features everything from the classics to independent bottlings, right through to some of the rarest whiskies in the world. Pair that with tasty cocktails and a rotating list of amazing local and international craft beers, and our friendly, cosy bar has you covered.

Whether you’re new to whisky or a devotee of the ‘water of life’, our bar team love talking whisky, whether over the bar or through our regular classes, events and private tastings.

Our weekly whisky classes are a great way to develop your interest and understanding of whisky. Fun and informative for the whisky novice or single malt aficionado, hosts are known authors and spirits judges that keep up to date with industry developments. To date, over 11,000 whisky fans and newcomers have honed their skills at one of our classes.

When a new and exciting whisky is released in Australia, we’re the first to share it through one of our events. Special guests like Jim McEwan, Ian Chang and Anthony Wills look to Whisky and Alement as a place to share their limited releases and have a bit of fun with the Melbourne whisky faithful.

A great way to secure a table for family celebrations, office get togethers and networking events, our group tastings take the guess work out of ordering with a set menu and presentation by one of our passionate bartenders. Book online or for alternate dates and times, email
