A pairing of local whisky & local chocolate!


Jasper+Myrtle are nestled in the Dairy Road precinct, right near Capital Brewing.  Jasper+Myrtle is a family affair - run by Li Peng and Peter - and they only use ethically sourced cocoa beans from Bougainville, where Li Peng and Peter visit regularly to catch-up in-person with the farmers that grow their beans.


Riverbourne Distillery hails from Jingera, near Captains Flat - less than an hour from Canberra. Martin Pye, owner and distiller, is no stranger here at Whisky Flights and is back for his 5th event with us!


In this December's lineup we will have Riverbourne Identity - a lighter style of whisky akin to Japanese or Irish whiskies; Riverbourne Ultimatum - a more full-bodied whisky similar to many found in Scotch whiskies from the Speyside region; Riverbourne; Riverbourne Objective - a mix of unpeated Australian barley and peated Scottish barley, an elegant fruity and smokey blend of ex-Bourbon and French oak casks; Riverbourne Supremacy - a whisky that will evoke memories of Islay with its double barrel shotgun of peat resting on a sweet and fruity undercarriage.


Also present will be a secret Riverbourne whisky pulled from the Whisky Flights archives, and small batch gelato from Jasper+Myrtle made from Riverbourne's Tribute single cask rum!
