Whisky on the Rocks made its debut this weekend on the foreshore of Sydney Harbour. A festival designed for first-timers right through to self-confessed whisky-nerds.
The festival is run across four days, where whisky lovers can explore Australia’s oldest precinct transformed into whisky experiences.
Two hours is recommended for the journey through The Rocks Festival Zones, complete with tastings and activations, before taking your own time to explore The Rocks Whisky Trail, a path of participating bars, pubs and restaurants.
Festival Founder Giles Merry said: “Working in collaboration with The Rocks, the concept was born out of our desire to support the hospitality industry and to get Sydney back on the go again.”
The festival consists of four key Whisky on The Rocks ‘Festival Zones’:
Whisky Cove, The House of Whisky, Shaker’s Lane and The Argyle Courtyard.
