MOVIE GUIDE to Sunday 19 August 2018

The 2018 Tasmanian Whisky Week takes place from Monday 13th – Sunday 19th August, with industry events held across seven days in Tasmanian distilleries, bars, barns, stables, restaurants and hotels. Throughout the week distilleries will be opening their doors to host behind-the-scenes tours to meet the distillers in person, provide access to unreleased whiskies, and offer dining opportunities where distilleries (both old and new) will recount the successes, challenges and events that have shaped who they are today.

Be sure to book early as there are limited tickets to each event. Tas Whisky Week promises to be a feast of memorable Tasmanian whisky events that will stay with you long after the final dram.  https://taswhiskyweek.com/
