Rye July at the Glenmore Hotel

While some people are doing Dry July, the Glenmore is offering a month of whisky appreciation designed to take the edge off the cold weather and help educate punters in the fine art of the distilled grain. A special whisky menu will be available throughout Rye July, culminating in a ticketed Night of Whiskies on Thursday July 14, where the Glenmore’s cosy middle level becomes whisky central with tastings, meet the makers, cocktail master classes and canapés matched with whiskies. (But before we go any further – yes, we’re aware that there’s two spellings for whisk(e)y – whisky if you’re talking Scotland and Canada, whiskey if it’s Ireland or the USA. For simplicity’s sake we’ll go with whisky here! Inconsistent spelling is just one of the interesting whisky facts you might pick up during July at the Glenmore.) Night of Whiskies will see the Club Room transformed into a Johnnie Walker haven. National Johnnie Walker and Classic Malt ambassador, Sean Baxter (a MasterChef alumnus, BTW), will take guests through premium tastings and share his whisky tips. If you’ve ever wanted to know how to make a whisky cocktail at home then Diageo’s Tim Oughton will host cocktail master classes in the Drawing Room. Each room will have an old fashioned rye pre-batch in barrels available throughout the month also. Tickets to the Night of Whiskies are $55 including a tasting glass, five tokens, cocktail master class and canapes on arrival.

A Long Lunch with Moo Brew and Moorilla Wines

The Sackville Hotel is hosting a long winter lunch matched with the taste of Tassie, care of three craft brews from Moo Brew and three wines from Moorilla Wines.    The lunch is priced at $60 a head, and includes roasted beets with baby watercress and feta as a starter, followed by salt and pepper bugs with kimchi cucumbers and wasabi mayo. Your main will star a grass-fed beef tenderloin with seasonal vegetable sides and for dessert a chocolate fudge brownie should take care of any lingering sugar cravings.   This lunchtime bounty will be accompanied by a pilsner, hefeweizen and dark ale from Moo Brew, alongside a sparkling riesling, sauvignon blanc and a pinot noir from Moorilla.    This is the sort of event it pays to arrive hungry for, and with four courses and matched beverages included in the ticket price, it's also great value for an indulgent afternoon.
