Event Details

During the 19th century the Shoalhaven was renowned throughout Australia for the exquisite quality of it’s illicit spirits, distilled in misty hills, often under the cover of darkness… Though many called this spirit moonshine, the locals had another name for this elusive tipple: “Poitín”.

Join Tara Distillery’s Ben Stephenson for a fascinating guided tasting event, and celebrate this fiercely traditional Australian and Irish spirit – Long hidden, find out why Poitín is now winning hearts and tastebuds around the world.

Ben will take you on a journey through the history of illicit distilling in the Shoalhaven and the process of making Poitín itself, and guide you through a tasting of modern Irish and Australian Poitíns (including Tara Distillery’s own celebrated “The Exile”) – This is an absolute must for any whiskey and spirit lover.

This event is a part of the Shoalhaven Food Network’s Autumn Celebration of Food.
