Whisky Live hits Hobart hotspot for the first time

Tasmania has become something of a whisky hotspot in recent years; with distillers and whisky bars popping up all over the state. 

No wonder, then, that Whisky Live is set to visit the Apple Isle for the first time in July. 

Whisky aficionados, and even fans who have yet to discover all the nuances surrounding whisky and whiskey, can look forward to an interesting experience at Whisky Live in Hobart on July 30.

Whisky Live will be held at the Grand Chancellor Hotel with two different sessions available: 1-4.30pm and 6-9.30pm.

Whisky Live events have been held throughout the world, but this is the first time the event has been in Hobart, organiser Ken Bromfield said. 

“The purpose of Whisky Live is to invite those new and old to the golden spirit to taste the range of whiskies and hopefully discover something they love,” he said. 

“We’ve set up Whisky Live so whisky lovers can move around the event to speak with the brand representatives and learn all about the whisky’s origin and production, while tasting and getting to know whisky first hand.” 

The event showcases high-quality Tasmanian, Australian and international whiskies and brands already committed to Whisky Live Hobart include Scottish producers Glenfiddich; Aberlour; Glenrothes, Glenlivet and peated whiskies including Bowmore, Laphroaig, Ardmore, Talisker and Finlaggan.

Others will include Tipperary Single Malt and Coole Swan, a Whiskey Chocolate Cream from Ireland, Paul John Whisky from India and Tasmanian distilleries Sullivans Cove, Lark, Overeem and Hellyers Road.

“Food is served during the event, so Whisky Live is the perfect place to spend a chilly winter’s afternoon or evening in Hobart,” Bromfield said. “Those who already know they have a taste for fine whiskies will love the Rare & Old Whisky Bar."

Tickets for Whisky Live are $99, which includes the whiskies for sampling, an assortment of food to graze on while tasting, a whisky glass to keep and a whisky tasting guide with notes, photos and flavour profiles. The Rare & Old Bar is an optional extra.
