Blending tales of shipwrecks, sly grog shops and distilling bans with some of Melbourne’s coolest whisky and gin joints, the Melbourne Whisky and Gin Tour is a rollicking adventure from Victoria’s early spirit making past to its modern craft scene.

  • Bars: You’ll stop for tastings at three of Melbourne’s coolest whiskey and gin bars, including Melbourne’s oldest dedicated whisky bar and the only distillery in the CBD. You'll taste the liquor and learn about the history of each spirit. Each tasting is accompanied by a pairing snack to really bring out the flavour!
  • History: You’ll learn about the man dubbed the Ned Kelly of Victorian whisky, how Victoria – not Tasmania – led whiskey and gin production in the 19th and early 20th century, and the local distillery which was so good, its overseas owners demanded they lower their quality to stop beating foreign competitors. You'll also learn fun facts about the rich global history of whisky and gin.
