The Indie Spirits Tasting is heading west. Following on from it's launch in Sydney in 2015, adding Brisbane in 2016 and now Perth will host its inaugural event this March. So buckle your seat belts for a showcase of some of the world's most interesting independent and craft bottlings - featuring hooch from local distilleries as well as little-known brands from around the world. For just $55 you will get you access to over 100 independent craft spirits, free bar snacks for those who get in early, a bottle of water and free seminars. You can also score a bargain, with many exhibitors offering bottleshop sales through The Re-Store. That way you can enjoy your new favourite spirit at home. Great way to spend a Wednesday night.*
"The Indie Spirits Tasting showcases invite-only artisan brands in a democratic format that puts the focus on the spirit, not the marketing hype," says Founder, David Spanton. It promises to be an exciting event for bar professionals and consumers to get to experience these niche brands that they may not be that familiar with."
