Beat the winter chill down by the water at a new pop-up chalet and whisky bar right on the harbour. Open until September 30 at Pier One Sydney Harbour, the Chivas Lodge on the Pier boasts all the comforts of an alpine lodge, from the opulent Chivas Regal Whisky cocktails and matched winter dishes right down to the roaring open fire. Get your skis on, stat.
Tapping into the stores of the iconic Scottish distillery, libations at the lodge will include Chivas Regal served five ways, either neat or on the rocks served with homemade chocolate infused with orange and coriander, as well as six custom-made cocktails. These concoctions include the Nuts & Curd (Chivas Regal 12, lemon curd, fennel, honey syrup and Frangelico) and the Aged Bobby Burns (Chivas, Bénédictine and vermouth).
The lodge will also play host to a number of regular and one-off events. Thursdays will feature complimentary tasting plates to go along with the liquid refreshments, while Fridays will welcome live saxophone performances and DJ sets along with three minute angel massages. Chivas ambassador Rachel MacDonald will host whisky masterclasses on select dates, while chef Joel Bickford will serve up a special whisky degustation dinner on the evening of September 15.
