Craft Drinks Market

Monthly craft spirits market at The Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park

Craft Drinks Market is the brainchild of Lindsay Silcox, and like all brilliant ideas, the inspiration for this unique market came from connecting the dots.


Australian artisan producers are creating some of the finest quality products on the market, however, consumers have little awareness of what is right on their doorstep.


Through his successful craft gin subscription business, Gin Lane (downginlane.com.au), organiser Lindsay Silcox has seen firsthand the challenges faced by small craft spirits producers in Australia. Lindsay saw the potential to address the issues craft producers face, by providing a regular craft drinks market for Sydney (and beyond). Bringing together Australia’s finest craft producers and Australia’s drinks lovers, this is a specialist ‘farmers’ market for discerning drinkers.


Marketgoers will have the opportunity to hear firsthand the stories and techniques behind these top-shelf drinks, find something new with exclusive products every month and learn more about Australia’s vibrant craft drinks industry with informative talks, masterclasses and cocktail demonstrations.


While the Australian spirits category is growing at 110% per annum, less than 2% of spirits consumed in Australia are produced here and the  Craft Drinks Market is creating a huge opportunity to grow and support our ‘home-grown’ booze.
