There's only one way to try Craigellachie's 51 year old scotch — and that's for free at this pop-up bar.

Usually, getting hold of a top-shelf whisky is a matter of having enough money to spend. But that's not the case with Craigellachie 51. There are just 51 bottles in the world and only one way to taste it — by winning free entry to Bar 51, a pop-up bar dedicated to the dram. And, to make the experience even more special, there are just four bars planned, in four cities across the planet.
Luckily for the people of Sydney, one will be popping up right here. You'll find it within the Duke of Clarence, from Wednesday, October 23 through Friday, October 25. For your chance to get inside, you'll need to be quick to enter the lottery via the Craigellachie website by Friday, October 11. Only 80 tickets are up for grabs.
Should you be one of them, you'll be spending an evening in the company of Craigellachie Global Ambassador Georgie Bell. Your adventure will begin with a private tasting of Craigellachie's 13-, 17- and 23-year-old whiskies, before the magnificent finale — a tasting of the Craigellachie 51, which will have spent 51 years resting in oak before getting to your lips. Best of all? You'll be sipping one of the world's best, most limited whiskies for free.
Craigellachie's Bar 51 is popping up in Sydney from Wednesday, October 23 through Friday, October 25. To enter the ballot to try the distillery's limited whisky, head here.
