Little Lon Distilling Co.

Melbourne, 3000

An all-drinking, all-eating exploration of the booze-fuelled birth of Melbourne. Starting with a native botanical cocktail and smoky mussels at the Little Lon Distilling Co., tour guides – and Festival legends – Richard Cornish and Max Allen lead you on an indulgent, leisurely walking tour, stopping for mutton and ale at the Black Eagle (the city’s oldest pub), pinot noir and venison at the Royal Society of Victoria, then on to the cells of Old Melbourne Gaol where you'll unlock Little Lon’s barrels of whisky and rum!
