Keeping It Flexible So There Is Something for Everyone!
After a couple of morning cellar doors it is time to change things up and let your group “choose their own adventure”! Venues such as Matilda Bay Brewhouse or Ironbark Hill Brewhouse offer both wine tasting and craft beer paddles at the same venue. Matilda Bay also has one of the largest selections of cocktails and beertails available in the valley. An espresso martini is the perfect “pick you up” for that post-lunch food coma!
Hunter Distillery is a huge crowd pleaser with flavoured vodkas (fruit and dessert flavours), schnapps and gins. Their funky test tubes for tasting and Australian natives that you’ve never heard of before such as “butterfly pea” (tastes like pineapple) will keep the spirit drinkers cheering.
Expert tip: Ready to get creative with your shots? What about a “Bounty Bar” (chocolate vodka and toasted coconut liqueur combination)? Or a “Caramello Koala” (chocolate vodka and caramel vodka)? The folks at Hunter Distillery have certainly taught me a thing or two about flavours so let them show you how to take your cocktail adventures to the next level during your tasting!
If you’re ready to “heat things up” (and take some really cool selfies of your friends “suffering”…haha!) you can try their chilli vodka! The distillery staff are more than happy to help your group find out who is the bravest!
The Hunter Distillery isn’t the only place you can put some fire into your tour. It’s well worth including a visit to Kiss of Fire Liqueurs. Whether you are a chilli lover or brave enough to give it a go, their creative flavours taste just as exciting as they sound. Only half of their range includes chilli (I personally love their coffee butterscotch) and out of those that do, there are plenty of mild options. Perfect for the group who would like to try it but don’t wish to spend the afternoon breathing fire!
