A one-hour performance show delving into the history of whisky on the goldfields through stories, songs and tasting.
From illicit distilling to tent bars, spirits as currency, the role of whisky in the Eureka Rebellion, and the many and varied escapades of producers and drinkers, the show will have the audience on the edge of their seats as they are taken on a rollicking journey through the 1850s.
It shines a light on a hidden part of Ballarat’s history, revealing people and events that have shaped the city.
The event is a multisensory experience that blends stories and songs – traditional folk songs and dirty old blues – with a guided tasting of three whiskies.
