Event description

Cosy into the Lock-In for a whiskey tasting masterclass with Rowan Prangley, founder of True North.

Rowan will take you on an adventure beyond the mainstream whiskey brands, sharing his knowledge and expertise of whiskey and the hidden flavours within each individual bottle of his handcrafted premium whiskies. 

Chef Paul McGrath will offer light nibbles to enjoy throughout the class.

About True North Founder, Rowan Prangley:
Every great journey has a unique beginning. True North’s began over a decade ago when a young chemist
named Rowan Prangley purchased his first bottle of single malt whisky.

Initially confounded by the smoky, medicinal flavours; a passion to learn more was ignited. Working as a scientist by day, Rowan schooled himself in premium spirits by night; throughout the years he
collected over 150 bottles of whisky including prized collectors’ items from The Dalmore and The Balvenie in Scotland plus others from Australian distilleries such as Black Gate Distillery, Lark Distillery and Sullivans
Cove Whisky.

Rowan also became an educator and began sharing his love for spirits with hundreds of people around
Australia each year through whisky masterclasses and education events.

In 2018, Rowan will complete his PhD in ethanol and bio-alcohol refinement and plans to make True North his full-time passion.
