Whisky on the Goldfields – Songs Stories and Tastings with Amie Brûlée at Kilderkin Distillery

Access info

Delve into the history of whisky on the goldfields through stories, songs and tasting, and take your ears, eyes and taste buds on a liquid journey.

From illicit distilling to tent bars, spirits as currency, the role of whisky in the Eureka Rebellion, and the many and varied escapades of producers and drinkers, Amie will have you on the edge of you seat as she takes you on a rollicking journey through the 18th century.

The show shines a light on a hidden part of Ballarat’s history, revealing people and events that have shaped the city.

It is a multisensory experience that blends stories and songs – traditional folk songs and dirty old blues – with a guided tasting of three whiskies.

Created and performed by musician and storyteller, Amie Brûlée, aka Dr Amie Sexton, expert in drinks history.

Presented in Kilderkin Distillery, the first distillery in the region since the 1930s, with views of the working distillery and whisky barrels, and open for a pre and post-show drinks.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
