The Virtual Whisky Shows allows you to sample and rate whiskies, learn about the brands, watch product videos and purchase bottles at special show prices from the safety and comfort of your own home.  A series of Virtual Whisky Shows is planned for 2021.


Who I am


Alchemist Events is managed by David Ligoff, co-founder of  World of Whisky (the only specialised whisky shop in Australia) and  one of the foremost authorities on the local whisky scene. His speciality is events, with 30 years’ experience in this industry in South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. He is the organiser of the highly successful The Whisky Show, held in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, with over 20 whisky and gin shows enjoyed by thousands of people over the past nine years.

What we do


If the world is your adventure playground. If whisky is not something you just drink but rather something you experience. If you tend to the bespoke rather than the pack. If your quest is to fill your life with the extraordinary and leave the mundane to others….meet the Alchemists. David and his team can use their magic to transform your next event into something you will remember. Nothing is too small…Whisky tastings, shows, fundraisers, corporate events, birthdays, weddings, whisky tours..wherever an unrivalled whisky experience is needed.

Whether it is selecting a range of whiskies for your Man Cave, providing professional staff to run the bar at your next celebration, or creating a memorable experience for a corporate function, Alchemist Events can customise bespoke experiences to suit your needs and budget.


David was awarded 2021 Communicator of the Year for Australia by the UK's Whisky Magazine in their annual Icons of Whisky Awards. These awards are presented in 5 zones around the world.
