About the Co-Op


A whiskey club you want to be part of…

The Co-Op is a whiskey club that started in Surry Hills’ bar, The Wild Rover. In the early days of opening Sydney’s newest whiskey bar back in 2012, Kim and the bar team were lucky enough to be invited to tastings around Sydney to scope out brands to add to the shelves.

As the number of regular whiskey drinkers in the bar grew and a thirst for knowledge became obvious, the Whiskey Co-Op was created to afford our customers the same privilege staff had from purchasing whiskey in bulk.

The stale, pompous and boring stigma behind a ‘whiskey club’ is something we wanted to avoid.

The Whiskey Co-Op was created for our regulars, mates and staff who showed interest in learning more about it. We love the stuff, so we created a club beginners and whiskey nerds alike can be part of that’s fun, informative, inclusive and a great platform to taste as much whiskey as possible.

The Co-Op has evolved in recent years to include our own published whiskey passport, a badge draw and have hosted whiskey focussed events that you won’t experience anywhere else.
