Announcing Sydney Whisky Month: 2024’s Biggest Whisky Celebration!

In Partnership with Glen Moray, Stauning and Angel's Envy

If there’s one event that has never failed to set the Man of Many office abuzz, it’s Sydney Whisky Week. This annual celebration has always provided the opportunity to bring Sydney’s whisky-loving community together in order to taste some of the most unforgettable drams the world has to offer. However, after three years, a week no longer feels like enough time to squeeze in all that incredible whisky goodness. As such, 2024 will see this annual collaboration between Man of Many and The Whisky List return bigger and better than ever. That’s right, we’re proud to announce the first annual Sydney Whisky Month!

Kicking off festivities with The Whisky Show Sydney on May 18th, this will be a month to remember. From exclusive tastings courtesy of some of the world’s finest whisky makers, to unique experiences served up by Sydney’s finest venues, this will be one you don’t want to miss. Read on to discover more!
