The Forgotten Bartenders: ​​​​​​​Rewriting HERstory


Join us at The Everleigh on Tuesday 8 March for a very special evening in celebration of the women who changed the history of cocktails,
​​​​​​​sponsored by Never Never Distilling Co​​​​​​​.

Every year at International Women’s Day, bartenders around the world toast Ada Coleman and her contributions to bartending , and mourn the absence of other female bartenders in history.

We’ve searched through the history books to discover the women who changed history behind the bar. This International Women’s Day, we invite you to join us in The Elk Room at The Everleigh and let us introduce you to the women that have shaped cocktail culture over the last three centuries.

Enjoy a curated selection of three cocktails made with Never Never Gin, alongside a cheese pairing from Lucy Whitlow during a conversation on historical women bartenders & learn about their contributions, curated by Nele Stubben & Katya Owens.

A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to Sisterworks, a not-for-profit social enterprise, based in Melbourne. Their mission is to support women who are refugees, asylum seekers or migrants to improve their confidence, mental wellbeing, sense of belonging and economic outlook.
