It’s time to learn your scotch from your bourbon

Thursday 14 January, 2016

Gentlemen, we need to have a serious discussion about the state of your current nights out on the town. Pub-crawls have done their dash, so leave them and the basic spirits in the past and join us at a place that knows a rare Japanese whiskey from a double malt scotch – Unforgiven. Just one night in Unforgiven and you’ll know your way around the boutique liquor list, your double from your triple distilled and exactly why they’re calling it Brisbane’s newest intrigue.


Cocktail hour is not just for the ladies

Frank Sinatra, Sean Connery and Humphrey Bogart all knew how to do it, and if you’re planning on joining the big leagues, it’s time you learnt how the art of ordering a proper cocktail is just about the manliest thing you can do – but only if you do it right.

Skip the fruity spritzers and head straight to Unforgiven’s signature Hibiki whiskey range, almost impossible to find and impossible to forget. After all, it’s past time you learnt the difference between a scotch and a bourbon. Channel your inner James Bond and get acquainted with a proper martini like Unforgiven’s Australian Native Wet Martini. Made on Ink Gin, distilled at the bottom of Mt Warning and coloured with butterfly pea petals – you’ll be an international man of mystery in no time.

Or, if you’re not sure what you feel like (or where to start), ask Luke behind the bar what he’s been working on that week and you’ll find yourself with a glassful of mysterious and perfectly balanced flavours in no time.


Swap seedy for stylish, dive bars are over anyway

You’ve got the suit and you can order a proper drink without blushing, the only thing left to do is find a venue as stylish as you are. Ditch the dingy dive bar for leather couches, low lights and a serious dash of old-world sophistication. After all, in the age of social media it’s only fair to give your night out the backdrop it deserves.

Take back the time-honoured art of ordering a cocktail or a glass of boutique spirits (complete with a carved block of apple ice) at Brisbane’s new favourite drinking den. Visit us at Unforgiven and learn firsthand how to separate the boy’s night out from the men’s night in style.
