Taste the history of American whiskey

On Friday 13 April, explore a drink that’s known to all and loved by many. ‘Bourbon, The American Spirit Whiskey Dinner’ gives you the chance to taste your way back in time – in the comfort of the Mail Exchange Hotel.

From Jim Beam to Basil Hayden’s, we’re pairing seven delicious dishes with seven different whiskeys. It’ll be a sensory delight you’ll never forget.

Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted with canapés and cocktails. How does house-made Australian beef jerky, hot smoked salmon on sourdough crostini and spiced calamari sound?
