My wife and I have an enthusiasm for whisky and pride in Australia’s growing craft whisky industry. We're proud Melbournians who love to travel. Now that we're back home, we love exploring Victoria’s energetic whisky scene - distilleries embarking on first releases and gaining international recognition and the fantastic whisky bars promoting them and sharing rich and subtle flavours from around the globe. We're keen to share our knowledge of Victoria's whisky history and craft whisky revival, and to bring to you the stories and people behind this wonderful craft.
