  • About the Event

    During the night, Vintec Club members and their guests will be treated with a special Whisky Cocktail followed by a selection of 5 exclusive Single Malt Whiskies specially chosen by the society's experts, paired with canapes and sharing plates crafted for the event.

    Each cask ever produced is unique, and by definition limited. Each cask yields no more than a few hundred bottles which can never be recreated... once they are gone, they are gone forever.

    Seats to this exclusive masterclass are priced at $125pp for Vintec Club members and their guests (limit of 4 guests per Vintec Club member).

    He has been hosting & presenting whisky education & appreciation courses for many years and has been engaged by all corners of the corporate and retail sectors.

    He is also the whisky lecturer for the WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) course in NSW.
    He is a passionate and charismatic speaker and his tasting events, whilst extremely informative and educational, are always entertaining.
