Perhaps it’s the looming weekend, the bristly cold Melbourne weather or just the nerdy journo in us that craves alliteration, but Whisky and Wine sounds like a dream team that we are 100% here for.
the Whisky and Wine Boilermaker session will feature a pop-up bar serving unique pairings of Wine and Whisky from both brands along with matching canapes.
The special partnership aims to “celebrate breaking the rules and letting your palate decide”.
For just $19 you will get:
- A glass of Hidden Sea Wine
- A glass of Melbourne-made STARWARD whisky to match
- A gourmet canape for balance
The Hidden Sea’s broader range of wines will be available for a free tasting in STARWARD’s whisky garden all day, and cellar door prices will also be available for both wine and whisky, which is basically an excuse to continue breaking the rules at home, and we like that.
We think this collaboration is a perfect match straight off the mark, as STARWARD have been known to break the mould when it comes to traditional whisky-making, and take advantage of Melbourne’s interchangeable climate to produce their signature spirit.
The Hidden Sea Wine make the most of their Limestone Coast environment too; with marine fossils from the region’s ancient thriving ecosystem contributing to the rich, fertile soil the vineyard sits on. The main component they attribute this to is a giant whale fossil, which is depicted in the labels of their award winning wine.
For Wine and Whisky lovers alike, this event is one not to be missed! The Boilermaker Session will run this Sunday, 4th June from 12-6pm at STARWARD Distillery – 50 Bertie Street, Port Melbourne.
