Event description
Berry Brothers & Rudd has operated out of the same shop in London since 1698, making it Britain’s oldest wine and spirit merchant. The brand also holds warrants for both HM The Queen and HRH The Price Of Wales, to further cement their prestige.

On the whisky front, Berry Bros are an independent bottling force to be reckoned with. They are renowned for their Berry’s Own single casks and the Blue Hanger blended whisky series.

Not always readily available in Australia, we saw some great expressions come into the country in 2016. Good news is 2017 is going to kick off with a bang, with a whole new shipment arriving.

As is the standard Oak Barrel approach when we get excited about something – we’re going to open a bunch of bottles for a masterclass Wednesday 8 February.

The top of the bill is a 1987 Bunnahabhain bottled as part of their ‘Exceptional Cask’ series. There’s just six bottles coming into the country (will probably retail around the $800 mark) and we’ll be opening one for this tasting.

We’ll also be cracking the brand the Craoi na ****, Berry’s new 10-year-old Irish Whiskey part matured in ex-Laphroaig casks.

There’s also the gorgeous 18-year-old North British single malt, which we got a brief taste of this year when just a handful of bottles were brought in (it’s delicious).

The 11th release of Berry’s world famous Blue Hanger blend will get a run while there’ll also be a cask strength bottling from Dailuaine and another Bunnahabhain single cask.

The masterclass will be hosted by Berry Brothers & Rudd’s Australian whisky ambassador Daniel Hutchins-Read.
