Sydney 2016

Whisky Live Sydney is the first of seven Whisky Live events in this years’ Australian Calendar.

Sydney’s Whisky Live will be hosted at the James Cook Ballroom, The InterContinental Sydney in the hart of Sydney’s business district. The venue is one of Sydney’s icon Hotel groups. The James Cook ballroom is named after Australia’s founding Explorer Sir James Cook.

The ballroom represents a befitting arrangement to showcase this year’s selection of whiskies from around the world.

Whisky Live Sydney will showcase a broad range of whiskies from blends to single cask expressions. The very well received Rare & Old Bar will be restocked with whiskies from a long gone era.

This year will see more Australian whisky expressions as this new industry develops with new styles.

The city of Sydney is undergoing major transformation with the expansion of whisky bars and the return of light rail transport.

Visitors to Whisky Live Sydney this year will experience both historic and a modern setting to taste and enjoy whiskies from around the world.
