Level 80, 650 Lonsdale Street
Melbourne, 3000

More than a masterclass in spirits, this event offers spirited lessons in history, telling the stories of key moments in drinking, before, after and during Prohibition. The classroom is Cameo, set high on level 80 of The Ritz-Carlton Melbourne and offering breathtaking views of Port Phillip Bay, Victoria Harbour, and Melbourne's skyline.

Co-host Michael Madrusan has tended some of the most revered bars in the world and is a respected authority and educator in the field. Joshua Hampshire, meanwhile, is the inaugural manager of Cameo, where he has curated a stock of exceptional spirits and celebrated vintages. Rounding off the event's pedigree is executive chef Michael Greenlaw (ex-Gilt, New York, and Vue de Monde, Melbourne), who will present a snack menu to accompany the drinks tastings.

This is your opportunity to taste from the world's dwindling reserves of rare and one-of-a-kind vintage spirits while they're still available - a must for any lover of fine drinks and high times.

This event runs on March 20. Tickets are $270 and include a guided tour of four cocktails and their history - including three vintage spirits (tasters), one fine and rare spirit paired with a chef’s selection snack menu by hatted Chef, Michael Greenlaw. To make your booking, click the link below.
