EDV continues to be one of the busiest cocktail bars in town due to its ability to transport you out of the modern day and into the charms of yesteryear. But it isn’t just the jazzy soundtrack, private booths and staff clad in waistcoats that are the drawcard. EDV backs it up with some serious drinks and also a bit of flair. There is even the opportunity to purchase your own bottle, should you be particularly taken with a whisky, for future consumption whenever you’re on site.
Jameson recently hosted a one-day festival called JJ's Place filled with live music, exclusive beer and whiskey tastings and delicious snacks headlined by Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever.
The festival launched Jameson Caskmates IPA editions, a blended Irish whiskey finished in IPA beer barrels. The hoppy, smooth whiskey was served up the way it is best enjoyed, with fresh lemon and tonic. Other delicious selections from the Jameson Caskmates family include the stout with soda and orange; the hard shandy; and a limited edition Young Henrys Irish pale ale boilermaker.
The festival may be over but still have a chance to try Jameson Caskmates IPA editions at the following great Melbourne whiskey bars. Just tell 'em JJ sent you.
