Victoria [read. Melbourne] touts itself as a hub for Australian culture. With a thriving Hospitality industry, inner-city Melbourne has a great range of whisky bars & a strong whisky drinking culture. However, there are actually relatively few distilleries producing whisky in the state.
Starward is the standout performer here, in just a few years they’ve launched a brand and landed their ‘daily drinking whisky’ in most bottle shops and back bars.
