How To Score Yourself Whisky Fair Tickets


Tickets for Sydney Whisky Fair 2018 will go on sale to Oak Barrel members midday Tuesday 26 June.

To be held onsite in our tasting room and warehouse space, the 2018 event will be one of our most exclusive. A strictly controlled capacity to ensure we host the most exciting exhibitors and interesting whiskies, this event will sell out.

There will be three sessions:

Session 1 – Friday 24 August 5pm-8pm
Session 2 – Saturday 25 August 1pm-4pm
Session 3 – Saturday 25 August 5.30pm-8.30pm


If you’re coming in a group, it’s wise to plan your desired session early as it may not be possible to move sessions once the event has sold out.

Your ticket includes access to the Fair, all samples from the exhibitor tables and a take-home Glencairn glass.

Tickets will be released in two batches, the initial release and then a second and final release a week later. In both cases, Oak Barrel members will have an exclusive 24-hour window to purchase pre-sale tickets.

There will be no tickets on the door and while we will keep a waiting list, history has shown that not many people surrender their tickets!



For the first and final ticket releases, members will be required to log into their accounts at to access tickets during the pre-sale.

All you need to log into your account is the email associated with your account and your password. If you do not remember your passwords, or feel you have not been issued one, head to to reset it.

We advise making sure you can log into your account before tickets go on sale, as there may be delays in responding to requests during the high traffic periods.

The pre-sale will last for 24 hours, then the general release tickets will be made available – if there is any left in the first release allocation.

We are an independent, family owned bottle store with a CBD location and a small staff that regularly give the impression of a much bigger company. We love what we do and are mindful that it’s not possible without the support of our customers and members, who support us throughout the year in store and at our weekly tastings. A 24-hour pre-sale window for our biggest event of the year is a small way to say thanks for 62 years of The Oak Barrel.
