For those new to Craft Works Distillery, there’s 4 things you need to know.

  1. Craft Works Distillery is the brainchild of Craig “Crafty” Field – a wonderful, humble, creative, always learning, always laughing, whisky legend with penchant for caps. When asked how he would describe the Craft Works brand you get “ that’s easy , humanising the art of whisky” that’s his tag line and he is not shy to tell you the good, the bad the ugly of life in a working craft distillery. 
  2. When he’s not out and about chatting all things whisky, you’ll find Crafty tucked away in his little distillery shed and sometimes with his good mate Todd aka The Todd doing making his own single malt whisky behind the Capertee Royal Hotel in Capertee, NSW. Look it up, it’s a picturesque part of the world, somewhere hidden between Lithgow and Mudgee, located on the edge of the widest canyon in the world, the Capertee Valley, NSW. We will get to sample Crafty's 1st release single malt - dubbed Project Ian. 
  3. NSW loud and proud – along with promoting his own whiskies, Crafty is a champion all things distilling NSW. More often than not, he’s promoting others over his own. Crafty is all about transparency and collaboration. We will explore his latest collaboration whisky called Vatman #2.
  4. In Australia, by law we need to wait 2 years before the whisky you distill and aged in oak can be called whisky. So, while Crafty was busy setting up his little distillery in rural NSW, he started his distillery journey with the formation of The Craft Works Whisky Company in 2015 and by purchasing whisky barrels and distillate from other distilleries across Australia (with a focus on NSW distilleries of course) and aging them to his own specs. It’s been a fantastic testing ground for Crafty to get an accelerated start on his distillery journey, testing different recipes, barrel types, char levels and barely usage, finding that balance between flavour and alcohol yield. We will get a sneak peak trying some of Crafy's WIP Independent Bottling cask aging spirit from  Fleurieu Distillery.

Very limited supply of Crafty's 1st release single malt will be on sale after the virtual tasting to ticket holders.
