Diversity is important to all industries. We hope  that this event will inspire people to support the small number of  women involved in the Australian distilling movement.

Anybody and everybody is welcome to come along and meet some amazing female pioneers helping to shape the Australian craft distilling industry. You will enjoy a 'cocktail degustation'.  Bloodwood's Claire Van Vuuren and her team Sarina Fang, Deanne Paramaxidis and Jessica will create a menu that is bold, packed with flavour and inspired by the spirits and cocktails that we will be tasting on the day. 

Tickets include: A bright, creative meal packed with flavour by the team at ‘Bloodwood’ with a cocktail paired with each dish.
