The Craft & Co Dark Spirits Festival will be the most anticipated Australian Craft Spirits event this winter. Whisk(e)y, rum, liqueurs and everything in between will be showcased over this 4 day event.

Starting with our gala Dark Spirits Dinner featuring Artillery Distillery, Boatrocker Brewers & Distillers, Brix Distillers, The Gospel Whisky and Manly Spirits Co, this 5-course paired dinner will showcase the best of Australian craft dark spirits and food.

From Friday 19 August  to Sunday 21 August, The Craft & Co’s famous market setup will be transported into Australian craft dark spirits paradise, where there will be 9 market stalls of local craft spirit distillers on show. You can meet some of the passionate makers in person, taste and find out all about their products. We’re expecting a sell-out event, so we are urging people to secure themselves a spot quickly!

As this is a sit-down market, the distillers will be moving table to table showcasing their products. Just sit back, relax, and let these stellar craft spirits come to you!

At the conclusion of the session, you are invited to stand up, mingle with the distillers and visit our amazing bottle shop – there will be exclusive specials and products you won’t find anywhere else!

Tickets from $35pp and include admission to your chosen session, free tastings and The Craft & Co showbag!
