MAKING FRIENDS WITH THE TOP SHELF
Chosen by the one and only Fred Siggins, this is his pick of Melbourne’s greatest places to drink whisky:
BLACK PEARL: A diverse and constantly changing range from around the globe + the best whisky based cocktails in town. There is a reason Black Pearl is famous and it’s not just because most of the dudes that work there have epic beards (in 2013 it was rated by Drinks International at the 7th best bar in the world!).
WHISKY & ALEMENT: Melbourne’s bona-fide whisky destination specialising in rare and old drams to have in or take away.
EAU DE VIE: An intimate, jazz soaked speak easy with all the right drinks. They’ve got an extensive selection of whisky from around the world and private lockers to keep your special bottle in until you return.
KODIAK CLUB: On the ground floor underneath Humble Tumbler HQ sits Kodiak Club – an unassuming little bar with a killer selection of American whisky including old, rare and exclusive drams for your drinking pleasure.
