Scottish culture immerses Circular Quay’s Highlander Whisky Bar in the Sir Stamford property. At the launch on Friday 10 May, Jacky Cheung, General Manager revealed three new offerings centreing around whisky.
“Sir Stamford at Circular Quay has already established itself as the home of great whisky events, from hosting annual whisky shows to regular Whisky & Cheese tastings. Our Highlander Bar will offer a unique platform to build on these events, with dedicated offerings to guests and locals who share a love of fine whisky,” said General Manager, Sir Stamford at Circular Quay, Jacky Cheung.
The unique Whisky High Tea (Monday to Sunday 11am-4pm $79) offers a bespoke twist on popular high tea experiences with a tempting variety of savoury delights complemented with sweet whisky infused treats including Jack Daniels Apple Mouse Slice, Jim Beam Bourbon Crème Brulee Tart and Johnnie Walker Caramel Square, and paired with a whisky flight of three Chivas Regal varieties.
The Whisky of the Month will take pride of place in the centre of the bar and be served with tasting notes for staunch whisky lovers. Selected for their uniqueness and scarcity, example offerings may include the limited-edition single cask bottling of a 20-year-old Ben Nevis, called the Highlander Inn.
The Bi-Monthly Whisky Master Class ($80-$130 per person includes 5-6 whiskies presented over 90 mins) will offer themed tastings designed to entertain and educate regular customers and newcomers alike. A ‘Malts in the Movies’ class, for example, will highlight the product placement of malt whiskies in classic movies, while a ‘How Whisky Made the Mob’ class will explore how organised crime and prohibition defined the whisky we drink today. And for the classic whisky drinkers, the ‘Whisky Old Enough to Order Itself’ class will celebrate all 18-year-old whiskies.
