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.
