Sip, bite, watch and shop the night away, with Laphroaig masterclasses, a whisky paired dinner and Mister Mister suit fittings.
The pandemic may have placed a temporary Prohibition on good times, but we can still indulge in the finer things in life, in a sophisticated (and safe) way. Scotland’s premier whisky distillery, Laphroaig, in partnership with Sydney’s favourite speakeasy Employees Only, would like to invite you to a special, one-off evening of indulgence and sensory delights - tailored to suit you.
Have a ‘barrel’ of fun as Laphroaig whisky expert Cam Pirret (whose learnt from the master distillers, and trod the peat fields of Laphroig’s distillery in Islay with his own feet) shares a range of rich sips from the legendary Scottish global whiskey house to open up your tasting palette, to tempt, delight and satisfy, all the while expanding your mind with the peculiar stories the revered drink holds in its past and present.
For each type of whisky you try, you’ll be presented with a divine dish from the tender loving chef hands of Tom Stott, Employee’s Only’s head chef, who has curated a culinary selection to evoke the full spectrum of the flavours inherent in the different Laphroaig drops you’ll be treated to on the night. A seared yellow fin tuna with caviar is your amuse bouche to accompany the Laphroaig Quarter Cask, before you'll progress onto EO’s Signature 24carat Gold Encrusted 250g Striploin (cooked to perfection, with truffle mash), matched with a Laphroaig 10yr. A Laphroaig Triple Wood will bring out the finesse of a Belgian Chocolate Tart to finish.
For the fashionable men in the room, bespoke tailors Mister Mister – who are keeping the glorious age old tradition of custom tailoring alive in 2020 while lending it a relevant, contemporary aesthetic – will be on hand to take your measurements for the future whisky drinking suit jacket of your dreams.
Whether you’re a bona fide whisky lover or a whisky beginner, or whether you’re just down for a night of old-fashioned indulgence, Laphroaig x Employees Only’s Whisky Affair will be an experience like no other.
