Image of the Day: The Baxter Inn, Sydney, Australia
As per usual with speakeasy-type bars, Sydney’s Baxter is next to impossible to find. It’s tucked away in an alley, down a flight of uninviting, industrial-looking stairs. But your perseverance will be rewarded as the whisk(e)y list boasts more than 200 selections from Scotland, Ireland, Japan, the U.S., Canada and, as this photo suggests, some world-class offerings produced right in Australia. The Aussie micro-distilling scene got a head start on America’s and, as a result, many of its whiskies—especially those crafted throughout Tasmania—hold their own against some of the finest Speyside and Kentucky output.
