Head to the bar upstairs from Whisky + Alement on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night, where you’ll find some of Australia’s rarest and most collectable whiskies. It’s also home to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s biggest range of single cask offerings by the dram. For that extra special attention and even more interesting whisky, book a group tasting or hire one of our private spaces for a function.

This is where you’ll give an over view of vaguely how the classes work, who they might appeal to etc. this that the other and then so on and so forth. Select a class to find out more and check for available dates and times.

When a new and exciting whisky is released in Australia, we’re the first to share it through one of our events. Special guests like Jim McEwan, Ian Chang and Anthony Wills look to Whisky + Alement as a place to share their limited releases and have a bit of fun with the Melbourne whisky faithful.

A great way to secure a table for family celebrations, office get togethers and networking events, our group tastings take the guess work out of ordering with a set menu and brief presentation, that punctuates an evening with good friends. Book these online for a fun and whisky filled evening or download our function packs for more options.
