About the event

Diversity and inclusion 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 cocktails paired with a mouth-watering feast.  The Waratah will create a menu that is vibrant, packed with flavour, and paired with cocktails inspired by the local craft spirits that has been crafted by some of the women attending!

For International Women's Day 2024 and beyond, let's Inspire Inclusion.

When we inspire others to understand and value women's inclusion, we forge a better world. And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there's a sense of belonging, relevance and empowerment.

The aim of the IWD 2024 #InspireInclusion campaign is to collectively forge a more inclusive world for women.

Tickets include: A delicious set menu inspired by local producers by the team at ‘The Waratah’ accompanied by Aussie inspired cocktails (package includes 5 cocktails paired with the menu. Additional drinks can be purchased). A vegan set menu option is available, just let us know when you purchase your ticket in the dietary requirements section.
