If lockdown put a decent dent in your whisky collection, then Melbourne's next spirits festival was made for you. The inaugural Melbourne Whisky Week kicks off Friday, November 19, delivering a 17-day celebration of peat, smoke, spice and everything in between.

Running until December 5, the festival is set to showcase a slew of top distilleries and whisky-obsessed venues, across a program of over 40 events — from tastings and tours to masterclasses and boozy dinners.

Among them, you'll find a five-course whisky-paired degustation at Eureka 89, a rollicking night of bourbon and blues at The Catfish, and an intimate tasting of the just-dropped, much-hyped 78 Degrees Australian Whiskey, hosted by Mr West.

Gospel Whisky invites fans on a special distillery tour, followed by a sumptuous four-course feast paired with cocktails, whipped up by the Rascal kitchen right there in the distillery. And if you're still thirsty, there's an array of distilling masterclasses, cheese and whisky flights, limited-edition whisky cocktail menus and other whisky business to sink your teeth into.
