Drop-In Drams

The most convenient and cost-effective way to explore whisky in Victoria.

This is where it all started, the heart of the Dram Association. Simply swing by The Strath before 7 pm any day except Wednesdays and sample up to two drams from our curated selection of whisky.

The regular “Exploration Series” of drams are released every second Monday of the month and are free to sample. We release two simultaneously – one is available for all members, and one is only available to our Premium Members.

We also sometimes have “Special Series” drams available at various price points and “Promotional Drams” which are additional free samples available for a limited time for all members.

Discover the identity of what we’re currently pouring by clicking on the drams below.
