The Distillery Takeover
The Stolen Gem is celebrating top local booze with a four-week distillery takeover series, featuring tastings, cocktails and producer chats.
May 06, 2022
This month, one of Melbourne's newest rooftop bars is letting you get acquainted with some of Victoria's hottest craft distilleries — without stepping foot out of the city. Ever the champion of local booze, sky-high hideaway the Stolen Gem has kicked off a limited run of weekly bar takeovers, set on showcasing top-notch spirits from across the state.
From 12pm each Saturday, through until May 14, the bar will be hosting a different guest distillery for an afternoon of tastings, exclusive specialty cocktails and distiller chats.
Coming up on Saturday, May 7, you'll catch the team from family-owned Somerville distillery Chief Son, as they share some stories and pour samples of their limited-edition single-malt whisky. And on May 14, the Jamaican-style Killik Rum out of Belgrave will be taking the spotlight, with the distinctly flavoured wild-fermented spirit available to try straight, as well as blended into a signature Old Fashioned.
Entry to each takeover event is free — book via the website.
