Melbourne History & Whisky Bars Tour

Drinking History Tours

Select Option


Blending tales of shipwrecks, sly grog shops and distilling bans with some of Melbourne’s coolest whisky and gin joints, the Melbourne Whisky and Gin Tour is a rollicking adventure from Victoria’s early spirit making past to its modern craft scene.

Starting at State Parliament, you'll be transported back in time to a heady world of prohibition, sly grog shops, shipwrecks and even Sherlock Holmes while sampling gin at a heritage brick cottage that once housed bootleg grog.

From here, it's a short stroll to Melbourne's first whisky bar and a wide selection of peaty single malts, honeyed Highlands and mellow Scottish blends.

Your tour ends at one of the cities best bars - a hidden distillery!
