To celebrate the relaunch of The Whiskey Co-Op, Surry Hills' bar Wild Rover will host three tastings in November courtesy of the folks from Overeem, Highland Park and Jameson.
Each tasting will be put on in support of 663 to Zero, a charity run by Grandma's Bar's Mitch Harrocks to aid in the production of clean drinking water in Uganda.
On Wednesday 15 November, Overeem's Been Cook is flying up to Sydney to share award winning whisky coming out of the Old Hobart Distillery. Four drams will be on offer as he shares the story of how Overeem came about, the rise of the Australian spirits industry and explains the flavour profile of each of the drams showcased on the night.
- Overeem Port Cask 43%
- Overeem Sherry Cask 43%
- Overeem Port Cask 60%
- Overeem Red Wine Cask 43%
663 to Zero aims to provide 100,000 people with access to clean drinking water by the end of 2018 by setting up the manufacturing of a device called 'Okuchumba Amaizi' Mitch created out of sheet metal.
"'Okuchumba Amaizi' was born out of my sheer pain that these people had to face this adversity on a daily basis just to have something I and all of us take as a basic human right." - Mitch Harrocks
Attendees will be able to sign up to The Whiskey Co-Op on the night with $20 from the ticket price to taken off the first year membership.
