On August 3, Perth beverage conisseurs and the just-plain curious will get a taste of America’s whiskey-soaked history, quite literally.
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of its distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee, Jack Daniels will be taking guests on a time-travelling whiskey experience like no other. The tour guide will be Jack Daniel’s own Assistant Master Distiller Chris Fletcher, who, on his first visit to Australia, will be on hand to share his incredible knowledge of whiskey-making.
Guests will find themselves taken back in time, starting with the prohibition 1920s, then on to the suave Sinatra style of the ’50s, before coming to the age of rock’n’roll in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s.
If this sounds all too academic, don’t worry: the evening includes a whiskey tasting masterclass , and enough whiskey and cocktail drinking to satisfy all tastes.
All this will be happening at a secret location in Perth. But don’t fret, you don’t have to find a Willy Wonka golden ticket to get inside. Simply, book your place here.
This is sure to be a hot-ticket event, so make sure you get in quick. Don’t make August 3 a day where your drowning your sorrows in an alternative bevvy at home. Chris Prindiville
