Celebrate your local cocktails and bars from 1 – 31 May with the launch of Australian Cocktail Month. This year the month will be bigger than ever, held across eight states and territories, and 12 cities all of which will join Australian Cocktail Month in partnering with some of the best local and international alcohol brands to champion the country’s bar industry. There will be 25 venues in NSW, including Sydney venues Maybe Sammy, Burrow Bar, Hickson House and Jangling Jacks. There will also be 6 venues in Wollongong, some of which include Black Cockatoo and The Prince; and an additional 6 venues in Newcastle, such as Babylon and Coal and Cedar.
The $20 ticket, which is now available online HERE, allows guests access to a special menu of $14 cocktails created exclusively for the month where consumers can escape the day to day and enjoy delicious cocktails.
Founded by influential industry figure Penny Sippe, Australian Cocktail Month aims to provide assistance to the hospitality industry by driving people into bars as they rebuild following the pandemic.
The month will feature a range of international brands such as Titos Vodka, Benriach 10 Whisky and Bombay Sapphire, as well as a multitude of local brands including Sydney-based Hickson Rd Gin, Brix White Rum crafted in Surry Hills, Karu Distiller from the Blue Mountains, and Farmer’s Wife Distillery in Allworth, NSW.
Recognising that the desire for low or no alcohol options is continuing to grow, Australian Cocktail Month has non-alcoholic options for $10. Fever-Tree; a premium mixer, and Lyres; a range of hand-crafted non-alcoholic spirits together with bartender creativity allow consumers avoiding alcohol to partake without compromising on what makes Australian bars great: the cocktail experience (and loads of flavour).
A ticket to Australian Cocktail Month can be used at any participating venue throughout May, and is available for purchase now HERE.
