Your host



Ren Butler is a passionate whisky nerd from way back. Her special knack for making whisky education fun, approachable and engaging has helped her run successful whisky events for The Whisky Social for the past two years around Melbourne and Brisbane. Having read everything she can on the subject as well as visited distilleries all over Scotland, the U.S., Japan and Australia, she is highly knowledgeable about a LOT of different types of whiskies. More importantly, what she doesn't know she won't B.S. you on. She'll just chase down any answer for you no matter how difficult!

Where you'll be

We will be going to Starward Distillery, Melbourne Moonshine, Whisky & Alement, and Beneath Driver Lane. The first two are active distilleries within a close distance to the CBD and trend setters in the whisky category here in Australia. Starward is a multi-award winning single malt distillery and the largest of its kind here. The two bars we finish up with represent the foundations and the future of whisky bar culture here.
