In Partnership with Brown Forman

Would you like to try some of the world’s finest and rarest whiskies, including expressions that sell for over AUD$3,000 per bottle? For anyone nodding their head and perhaps wiping a little drool from their chin right now, we have just the event for you. It comes to us from Brown-Forman (one of the world’s oldest and largest Premium whisk(e)y producers) and goes down on 6 September at the luxurious Hinchcliff House in Sydney. Guests will experience an evening for the ages as they sample 12 ultra-premium whiskies (in total) from iconic brands Jack Daniel’s, Woodford Reserve, The GlenDronach, and BenRiach. Enter below for a chance to win 1 of 5 double passes, valued at over AUD$500. The competition starts this Friday 26 August and runs for six days only, closing at midnight on 31 August. Winners will be drawn on 1 September and they must be either based in Sydney or able to make their own way to the event.

We’re getting excited just writing about this thing, so we can only imagine what the night itself will have in store. With Brown-Forman at the helm, it couldn’t come from a better group. This is a company that’s been producing terrific luxury drinks and spirits for 150 years. Most of the participating distilleries were similarly founded back in the 1800s, so it’s safe to say that guests are in for something special. Which expressions will those in attendance be tasting exactly? The host is keeping those details under wraps so as not to spoil any surprises, but we’re confident guests will try some of the best and rarest premium whiskies from each of the four participating distilleries.

In addition to the whisky experiences, the evening will be accompanied by roaming canapés and an oyster shucking station. This is an event that sells itself, but if you need a little extra incentive, we’ll remind you once again that these distilleries have some exceptionally rare juice up their respective sleeves. Take Woodford Reserve’s $3,000 Baccarat Edition – an XO cognac finished bourbon, decanted in hand-blown French crystal for example. Will it be featured at the event? We don’t know for sure, but you can probably expect something of a similar calibre.

5 Double Passes Up For Grabs – Each Prize Includes:

  • A double pass to the exclusive “Distillery Door” event at the luxurious Hinchcliff House in Sydney on the 6th of September, 7-9pm  (Valued at more than $500)
