16.12.2016 Update re proposed Nant acquisition
We are excited to announce the start of something special in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.
The Nant Whisky School.
Over the course of three weeks students can take a comprehensive night class each week featuring lessons on:
- The distillation process and how steps affect the outcome from the type or barley used, the water, to the shape and materials of the still.
- Cask sizes and timber types and how they affect the maturation of whisky.
- A blending workshop so you can see how different flavours can contribute to and balance out the profile of whisky.
This in depth training is ideal for hospitality and retail staff as well as whisky enthusiasts looking to get an inside look at how whisky is made, all the way from barely to bottle.
Follow the Emporium Facebook for future updates.
The current bar is moving to the larger venue (with full kitchen) to No. 2 Edward Street and the Emporium venue will be undergoing renovations to accommodate the new classroom style training areas.
All locker owners’ bottles at Emporium will be safely transported and housed at the 2 Edward Street venue from now on.
The Brisbane bar has undergone numerous changes over the last six months including doubling its size by incorporating the property next door, and recently being renovated to include a full kitchen.
A new whisky matched winter menu has been specially prepared for it’s opening. Please come and visit us at the new venue soon.

It’s exciting times for Nant and its customers with a new whisky bar about to open in Malaysia – our first outside Australia. This complements our popular bars for whisky lovers in Brisbane, Melbourne and Hobart (and soon-to-be Sydney).
Demand for our premium tipple is flourishing and motivating; Nant bottle sales are forecast to triple this year so, to keep up with our customers’ desires, we have begun work on an AUD$1.5 million expansion of the distillery and bottling operation at the beautiful Nant Estate.
Four new copper stills have been imported to Tasmania from Scotland and will soon come online. This will allow Nant to treble production and add three people to its staff of 80. We’ll let you know how it’s progressing.
Nant is still showing the world how the finest whisky is done. We recently won five Gold medals and one Silver medal at the China Wine and Spirit Awards, as well as being recognised as the Asia-Pacific Spirit of the Year.
These award winners are available online and in our venues now! For more information visit the store page online.
