The Australian Drinks Festival (formerly called Top Shelf) returns to Melbourne on 16-17 July 2016, with hundreds more premium brands to sample, educational presentations and lots of fun.

Here’s what you can expect from the show:

This year, you can expect big activations from Beam Suntory, Bombay Sapphire, Fine Wine Partners, Spirits Platform and Nip of Courage; the Monkey Shoulder bar makes a welcome return; the beer and cider categories are represented by the likes of Gage Roads and Batlow; and there’ll be plenty of interesting boutique brands to taste and explore such as Maidenii Vermouth and Poltergeist Gin.
