AUSTRALIAN WHISKY HISTORY IN THE MAKING FOR RURAL BUSHFIRE RELIEF – Australian Whisky News

AUSTRALIAN WHISKY HISTORY IN THE MAKING FOR RURAL BUSHFIRE RELIEF
As part of The Aussie Spirit Auction, we’re making the ultimate ‘Aussie Spirit’. Literally.

The “godfather of Australian whisky” Bill Lark will be guiding the blending and maturation of this very special whisky in Tasmania (stay tuned here for the distillery reveal very soon). 5 barrels – each boasting a different, delicious expression – will be up for grabs.

100% of funds raised from all auction items – including ‘The Aussie Spirit’ whisky – will go to Rural Aid for bushfire and drought relief.

Gather your friends and colleagues and go in together if you have to; this is a once-in-a-lifetime drop. Become a part of history while helping Australians affected by bushfire and drought by vying for this whisky.
