Sydney is home to some serious local distillers, as well as the event to prove it. Returning for its third year, Indie Tasting exclusively features independently-made spirits, and plenty of them. On September 16, Restaurant Hubert will host both local and international makers of craft spirits in a day of talking, learning and, of course, boozing.
The event will see 150 boutique spirits on offer from more than 40 suppliers, so you'd best arrive thirsty. It's the type of event that whiskey, gin, rum, vodka and tequila-lover's dreams are made of. We'd keep listing different kinds of spirits, but we're getting thirsty.
Each ticket will include a burger and fries, plus three free masterclasses, which include a myth-busting session, a chat about sustainability, and a class called 'Here's a crazy idea — let's open a distillery'. Indie Spirits Tasting is being held as part of Sydney Bar Week 2017, so this tasting is just a highlight of what drinks may come mid-September.
