Were you the type of kid who spent too much time trying to win prizes from claw machines? Are you now the kind of adult who likes your spirits with an amber hue? In great news for everyone who falls into both categories, Whisky Whisky combines the two — because who said that sipping drams and testing your hand-eye coordination to win whisky-themed prizes can't go hand in hand?

Taking place across two sessions, from 12.30–3pm and 4–6.30pm on Saturday, September 24 at Fish Lane, Whisky Whisky comes from the folks behind Supping Club. As the event's name makes plain, this afternoon is all about whisky appreciation. For your $109–129 ticket — depending on how early you purchase — you'll be able to taste your way through more than 80 different local and international whiskies from 30-plus brands, including varieties from Bladnoch, Coastal Stone, Archie Rose, Starward and Kilchoman. That's plenty to say cheers to, clearly.

You'll also get your own glass to keep, and a lunchbox of pan-Asian-inspired eats from Hello Please to line your stomach. And, you'll score a token for one top-shelf dram of your choosing as well.

When you're not sampling whisky — or vying for prizes at the claw machine — you can opt for frozen whisky sours, Sea Legs Brewing Co's beers and non-boozy beverages, although they'll all cost you extra.
