The Indie Tasting, the first show of its kind in Australia, exclusively catering to small independent spirits, is returning to Frankie’s Pizza in Sydney on Sunday, 18 September and this year, for the first time, it’s open to the public.
Normally strictly the domain of bartenders, the Sydney Indie Tasting will showcase over 40 suppliers and 120 boutique spirits to both consumers and trade. Dedicated to shining a light on the amazing array of small, artisan brands available now or on their way to Australia, the tasting will give attendees the chance to try brands that aren’t even on the market.
Indie Tasting founder, David Spanton, shares, “These definitely aren’t your run-of-the-mill bottleshop offerings. Many haven’t even made it to the bottleshop or backbar yet. Thanks to a boom in the local distilling industry, home grown Aussie spirits are making a big appearance. This showcase is about helping small brands get more visibility in today’s competitive market. And Sydney is the perfect city to host such an event with its thriving small bar scene and passionate bartending professionals and drinkers.”
Held in an intimate setting, you’ll have the chance to meet master distillers and talk to brand owners about their brands. You can also attend six free masterclasses, which are first in best dressed, and all included in the entry fee.
– The boys from Young Henrys in Newtown showing their Nightsweat Moonshine and Young Henrys Noble Cut Gin
– Poor Toms Gin, made by two friends who started distilling in their kitchen in Marrickville, will be there
– Six distilleries from North Carolina showcasing brands not seen in Australia before including The Brothers Vilgalys Baltic Style spirits, a yam vodka called Covington and the Troy & Sons range of whiskies, which includes a blonde whisky
– Applewood Distillery, a tiny little operation from the Adelaide Hills that produces a gin and an aperitif called Okar
