From barley to rye and juniper to the meek potato, our favourite spirits start from humble beginnings. From there, these ingredients embark on fascinating journeys to bring us some of our most cherished pleasures – crisp vodka, smooth whiskey and piney gin. From complex flavours to masterly craft, there's a lot to celebrate. That's why the experts have come together for the inaugural Sydney Spirits Festival, running from Friday, May 10 to Sunday, May 12.

The festival will be held at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, 130 Argyle St, The Rocks, with close to 150 spirit brands on display, promising something for novices and enthusiasts alike. 

Highlights include two exclusive masterclasses: a special Espresso Martini masterclass to celebrate Mother's Day and a Planteray Sealander Rum masterclass hosted by Grazia di Franco, exploring all you need to know about rum. 

There are also general tasting sessions with some of the nation's most esteemed spirit experts. Plus, there is a selection of premium international food to enjoy, including some indulgent Caviar Bumps from Hugo Vodka. 

So, if you want to discover more about the wonderful world of spirits, join the celebration this May. General Tasting Sessions cost $80, and Premium Session Tickets are available for $120. See the full program and get your tickets here.
