Sydney Whisky Week returns for the third time today, with The Whisky List and Man of Many partnering to bring a celebration of whisky to bars across the Harbour City.
Participants can download The Whisky List app and take a self-guided walking tour of some of Sydney’s best bars, including Grain Bar, Doss House, Alfy’s Bar and The Roosevelt. At each participating bar, they will receive a free pour of whisky from each of the partner brands – Glen Moray, Glenmorangie, Waterford and Manly Spirits Coastal Stone – with every purchase of a featured Sydney Whisky Week cocktail.
Co-founder of The Whisky List, Oliver Maruda, said he was excited to see the festival return.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing Sydney Whisky Week back in 2023,” he said. “This event is not just about whisky; it’s about celebrating our city’s rich culture and community spirit. We can’t wait to see everyone out and about, exploring the city and enjoying some fantastic whisky at our top bars across the city.”
Frank Arthur, Co-founder of Man of Many, added: “Sydney Whisky Week is a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together and discover the city’s world-class bar scene. We’re proud to be supporting local businesses and promoting tourism in Sydney, and we look forward to seeing everyone at the event.”
Offering far more than just free pours at participating bars, each sponsor brand will also be hosting exclusive ticketed tasting events throughout Sydney Whisky Week, including:
