Whisky Tastings at the bar 

The bar at Whisky & Alement offers a unique selection of customised whisky tastings that are perfect for casual catchups. Open Wednesday through Sunday evenings, the venue caters to groups of between 1 and 14 guests at one time without requiring payment in advance. Impromptu whisky tasting are a great way to catchup with friends for an experience that won’t kill the conversation, whilst also tasting some of the best whisky on offer in Australia!
