Riverbourne Distillery &
Tumut River Brewing Co:
A Boilermaker

6:30pm - 17th August 2022
Novotel Canberra
Cost: $79 - 99

Sold Out!

Join us alongside both Martin Pye from Riverbourne Distillery & the folks from Tumut River Brewing Co as we fly through 5 pairs of spirits & beer in an epic boilermaker session!

Riverbourne Distillery hails from Jingera, near Captains Flat - less than an hour from Canberra. Martin Pye, owner and distiller, is no stranger here at Whisky Flights and is back for his 4th event with us!

Martin and his wife Eileen founded Riverbourne in 2015, and two of their whiskies - the Identity and the Supremacy are currently on their 9th release. In this tasting we'll be tasting both the Identity - a lighter spirit driven whisky somewhere between a traditional Highland Scotch & an Irish malt; the 8th release of the Supremacy - a heavily peated whisky akin to those from Islay. We'll also have the Ultimatum - a more Speyside-like whisky aged in fortified wine casks; and the dark sipping rum.

Joining Riverbourne with the other half of our paired boilermakers will be Tumut River Brewing Co. TRBC is located in Tumut - on the western foothills of the Snowy Mountains - on the other side of the Brindabellas to Canberra.

TRBC will be bringing Hitchhikers Guide to Galaxy - a single hopped Australian Pale Ale; Hot Cross Pilsner - a Czech style pilsner using local Atlas and Biscuit voyager malts; Bad Mofo - a West Coast IPA using Munich malts and locally grown rye; Portstar - a smoked porter using Voyager and Gladfield malts, and very low on hops; and Ginja Ninja - a deliciously solid ginger beer brewed with local Tumut region Batlow apples.

The Lineup:

A cheese & charcuterie plate with locally sourced produce from Canberra and the Southern Tablelands is provided for each attendee at in-person events. Please advise us via email if you have any allergies or dietary requirements that we need to be aware of.

The First Edition bar at the Novotel Canberra will also be offering every attendee 25% off all food and drinks before, during, and after our Whisky Flights event - simply show your ticket at the bar when ordering to receive your discount!

This event is only for persons aged 18 years or older.

Full refunds will be offered in case of event disruptions due to Covid-19.

Full refunds are also available for ticketholders who test positive, who need to isolate, or who are awaiting testing results.

Upcoming Flights

We've got a great selection of flights planned for the near future, with destinations including some favourite distilleries from Islay, and Speyside, in Scotland; a tour of Irish single casks, a meandering tour across Europe and Scandinavia, and some stunning sights from the United States of America.

We will also be taking off for some domestic destinations, where stories abound of the hard yakka that goes into setting up some of The New World's most loved distilleries - where we will try some of the boldest, meatiest, whiskies that have been slumbering away on this sunburnt country of ours!

Make sure your luggage is securely stowed, and your seatbelts are done up low and tight folks - some of these flights will be like none that have ever graced this beautiful capital of ours!
