Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around Melbourne here.

The Gospel is Australia’s only dedicated rye whiskey distillery and as part of Rye July, we are collaborating with bacon fanatics Saltsmith to bring you a bacon and rye whiskey infused tasting.

Locally distilled in Melbourne, The Gospel’s whiskey is made with 100% Australian rye. Inspired by the divine music that shares its name The Gospel was founded on the belief in bringing a distinct Australian approach to a traditional American whiskey to the world.

Saltsmith Bacon is made from Australian Free pork, made by hand in North Melbourne. With free range quality pork straight from the farm, they make their bacon with a traditional process, enhanced with technology. Pushing the boundaries of the humble rasher, taking flavours to the extreme and making something that will give you a moment of pure sensorial bliss – they have an unhealthy obsession with making ridiculously good bacon.

It all goes down on Saturday July 30. Grab tickets by heading here.
