About this event

Join founder of Melbourne’s own STARWARD whisky for a casual nip of locally crafted whisky and discuss how to successfully fuse innovation with age old tradition. Hear first-hand how David Vitale went from e-learning professional to buying a still, renting an airport hangar and starting a new age whisky company.

His team’s modernisation of the craft includes a unique R&D program, which allows staff to use 10% of their time experimenting and approaching unanswered questions. In the making of their signature whiskies, the distillery takes the best of the old world and marries it with the new.

There is a myriad of challenges facing the craft spirits industry in Australia. Learn how one is managing to both overcome these adversities and push the boundaries further.
