Whisky in the Wheelwrights

Step into one of Sovereign Hill’s most unique spaces where wood, fire, metal, heat and steam take centre stage.

Discover what whisky and rare trades have in common in a special whisky-tasting session inside Sovereign Hill’s wheelwrights’ workshop.

Hosted by Australia’s leading distilleries Archie Rose and Starward, together with Sovereign Hill’s rare trades team, this special event is one for the senses.

Experience a conversation about craftsmanship with Sovereign Hill’s rare trades team while tasting six of the finest Australian whiskies.

Each whisky tasting will be accompanied by a specially-selected snack, with demonstrations throughout the evening of heritage trades by Sovereign Hill’s coachbuilders, wheelwrights, blacksmiths and carpenters.

Perfect for those who are interested in the science and romance of whisky-making.
