Sydney Whisky Week is Back!

Sydney Whisky Week is back and it’s bigger, bolder, and boozier than ever before. From May 10 to May 20, 2023, we’re celebrating the elixir of life for a glorious 11 days of drams and deliciousness. Now, you may be thinking, “Hey, wait a minute, 11 days is longer than a week!” But let us tell you, confining this party to a measly 7-day stretch would be an absolute crime against the palate.

If this is the first you’ve heard of Sydney Whisky Week, it essentially turns the city into a whisky utopia, where the best bars in town join forces with the world’s finest distilleries to create unique and unforgettable whisky and food pairings. It’s like a match made in heaven, or in this case, mostly Scotland. Like us, we know you don’t want to miss out on the best experiences available, so we’ve compiled a list of the can’t-miss exclusive ticketed tasting events. Check them out below:

As one of the best local events of the year, the Man of Many crew will be getting involved throughout the week, so come along, say hey and raise a glass to some of the world’s best whisky over 11 incredible days.
