2021 book club kicks off with a British spy thriller

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Sunday, December 20, 2020


For the first book club of the year, the group will discuss ‘Agent Running in the Field’ by John Le Carre.


Le Carre was an award winning British author of espionage novels. During the 1950s and 1960s, he worked for both the Security Service (MI5) and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). His third novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1963), became an international best-seller and remains one of his best-known works. Following the success of this novel, he left MI6 to become a full-time author, with this novel being his 27th and last before his passing in December 2020.


The critics gave the book rave reviews:

“Agent Running is right on the money, in psychology as much as politics, a demonstration of the British spy thriller at its unputdownable best.” The Gardian

“Agent Running in the Field is a master spy novelist’s attempt to capture Brexit Britain in all its dysfunction and ignominy.” The Atlantic


What will our dedicated book clubbies think?


The book Club will meet via Zoom on Wednesday 27th January from 16:00 to 17:30.

Hellyers Road single malt pinot noir finish; a perfect end to a night of food and wine

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Sunday, December 20, 2020


December Whisky of the Month – Hellyers Road Single Malt Pinot Noir – reviewed by Committee Member and Food and Wine sub-club supporter Robert Rowlands.


Rob has been a huge supporter of Club events, attending whenever he can, often bringing guests who inevitably become Members themselves!


Most recently we were extremely lucky to have a special introduction from Rob to Major Robert Joske OAM, the manager of General Sir Peter Cosgrove, and thus enabled the Club to host an intimate lunch with Sir Peter at the time of the launch of his latest memoir. Tireless in his support of the Club, we know Rob has some other special guests in mind for 2021, so watch this space!


Being the connoisseur of food and wine that he is, Rob was the perfect Committee choice to review this month’s Pinot laced Whisky, Hellyers Road Single Malt hailing from Tasmania. His review below:


Colour: Golden with highlights of amber

Nose: a little fruit with caramel overtones…a lot like Christmas cake

Palate: Sweet, dry and woody

Water: Sweetens and smooths, with sweetness lingering like a good Pinot

Finish: Short, sharp and sparkling


Thanks to Rob for taking the time to review our Whisky of the Month!

New merchandise waiting to be worn!

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, November 20, 2020


Keeping up with the new fads in the fashion world can be difficult and somewhat confusing, lucky the team have all your athletic and outerwear fashion needs covered.


We first partnered up with Delfina swimwear to re-energize our swimwear offerings and range.


Our second move was partnering up with ISC and launching our female and male merchandise which includes exercise tops (both short and long-sleeved) puffer vests, polo shirts, running/training singlets, wet weather jackets and exercise shorts.


The exercise attire is made from a breathable lightweight material and is perfect for running a virtual marathon, as modelled by AD Manager Malcolm during the New York Marathon in Sydney challenge. The outerwear is designed to keep you warm (but still looking stylish).


For those who wish to pay homage to the older merchandise, we will continue to sell this for the remainder of the month at a discounted rate, with the new range also available to purchase now.


Feel free to pop into the Athletic Department to check out the new range.


For more information please contact the team at




October book club unravels an intricate web

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, November 06, 2020


Tattersalls Book Club members reviewed Bernadine Evaristo’s book, Girl, Woman, Other; where the author examines the lives of 12 women who are inextricably linked by a fine thread. These women are mainly women of colour from different generations, faiths, sexuality, classes, politics and heritages.


Each complex character has a chapter and their lives overlap within the chapters. The book is about struggles but also love, joy, and imagination. Evaristo explores motherhood, sexuality, racism, betrayals, success and regret, which she does showing incredible insight into each woman’s life.


Book Club members agreed, overwhelmingly, the book was amazing and well worth reading. Everisto’s writing style is certainly different, with little or no punctuation, especially full stops which appear very rarely. However, after a few pages even the punctuation prefects amongst Book Club members forgot about that and enjoyed the wonderful reading experience.


In keeping with our three word description; twelve remarkable lives.


Next up we will be reading “You shouldn’t have joined…”, a memoir by Sir Peter Cosgrove and will meet via Zoom on Wednesday 25th November from 16:00 to 17:30.


For more information or to sign up for the book club please contact Sara at or phone 9263 9202.





Writer's Tears Irish Whisky, the perfect accompaniment to a complex novel

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, November 06, 2020


November Whisky of the Month – Writers' Tears Irish Whiskey - reviewed by Committee Member and Book Club co-captain Bettina Pidcock.


I really enjoy settling into the sofa with my book and a little drink to warm me from the inside. It's interesting to muse on the thoughts of the writer of any book, particularly when it's a long and intricate tale, like the Book Club's last title: Girl, Woman, Other which traced the highs and lows of life for twelve British women of colour. Perhaps Bernadine Evaristo shed tears for her subjects; she painted an empathetic and rounded portrait of them that was truly deserving of the Booker Prize.


The whiskey provided a delicious and soothing companionship to the novel, which explored tales of immigration, education, gender identity, race relations and so much more. Writers' Tears Irish Whiskey was a great accompaniment to the triumphs and sorrows of each of the characters. While the book had many complexities, the whiskey was light with a pale honey hue and a sweet, fruity, almost maple syrup nose. It's wonderfully smooth and warming on the palate. I drank it neat and found it to have a very mellow finish. I can recommend it as a warming, soothing accompaniment to a good and complex read.


Thanks to Bettina for taking the time to review our Whisky of the Month!

Athletic Timetable Summer Schedule

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Thursday, October 22, 2020

With striving for excellence at the forefront of our minds, we have added an additional class ‘Barre Pilates’ which will take place every Friday (from the 6th November onwards) at 12:45, replacing spin.


This class will be run by Zuzana and will include a variety of techniques and movements designed to help our balance and stabilising muscles as well as incorporate some of the finer points from ballet, Pilates and dance. This class will focus on glutes, core and a blast of the cardiovascular system.


The class itself will feature music to help with the flow of movements and will be open to all fitness levels from beginners to advanced gym-goers.


As always, we are encouraging all Members to please book their spots in the classes as numbers are still limited.


New timetable available here: here

A whisky fuelled cycling tour?

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Thursday, October 08, 2020


October whisky of the month – Bruichladdich Classic Laddie Unpeated Single Malt - reviewed by Committee Member and Cycling Club co-captain Michael Hanrahan.


Bruichladdich is Gaelic for "gentle slope of the sea" which is appropriate as the distillery is located on the Scottish Isle of Islay, approximately 40 kilometres north of the Northern Irish Coast.


Islay is a cycling Mecca with a few distilleries thrown in for good measure.


The distillery (owned by Remy-Cointreau), in order to promote fitness for their staff and reduce the use of cars on the island, have created their own cycle club; the Laddie Community Cycle Club, and hold their own one-day tour called the "Ride of the Falling Rain".


The whisky is a perfect blend of Highland and Islay with no colour added; a slightly oaky nose, consistent with maturing in barrels of American and European Oak, a malty vanilla and sweet oak palate; non-chill filtered water and a gentle pleasant sea breeze and salt finish.


My bottle was excellent. You can go to their website and review your batch, they are not meant to be the same. Go get a Johnny Walker if you want that.


Forget Orange for next year’s Tattersalls Cycle Tour; Tour de Islay looks the goods! We may even consider Islay's famous "Extreme Whisky Tour" where participants take part by foot, cycle and kayak to visit 10 island distilleries over 97 kilometres in just three days.

Controversy hits Book Club in August

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, September 04, 2020


Our book this month, They know not what they do by Finnish author Jussi Valtonen, was a bit controversial! Straddling the US and Finland, the story confronted traditional themes like family connection and parenting, ethical dilemmas involving animal testing and market power and some futuristic ideas around how technology and pharma are impacting our lives and how they are marketed to us. Although not a favourite, it kept us all talking candidly and we all agreed we learnt something new.


The groups three-word summaries are very telling this month: "children, parents, bad" or " Finland, America, black".


Plenty of room for more participants for our next meeting on Zoom where we embark on a memoir; Educated by Tara Westover.


Readily available in most book stores. Join in a lively discussion with your fellow book club Members!


This month's book club meeting via Zoom takes place on Wednesday 30th September from 16:00 to 17:30.


For more information or to sign up for the book club please contact Sara at or phone 9263 9202.





The Great Virtual Race across Tennessee deserves a Jack Daniels Select

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, September 04, 2020


Our September Whisky of the Month – Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select, reviewed by Committee Member and Run Clubber Richard McGrath.


Tennessee, proudly known as the volunteer state, has three notable exports; country music, whiskey, and soldiers.


The origins of country music and whiskey in Tennessee are intertwined down to the Irish spelling of whiskey and the sound of the Galway pub fiddle you can still hear in today’s country hits. They say the stories of country music are a combination of Saturday night and Sunday morning. Sometimes they are both if you think of Kristofferson’s “Sunday Morning Coming Down” or Love and Theft’s lyrics “I ain’t afraid of dying, but what scares me to death, is meeting Jesus, with whiskey on my breath.”


Jack Daniels’ Single Barrel Select Tennessee Whiskey is a step up from the famous Old No. 7. First bottled in 1997, Select is a relatively new addition to the 1864 Lynchburg distillery. This brand is as American as Harley Davidson Motorcycles and Levi’s jeans. All three are very familiar with each other, and the expansion of the Jack Daniel’s brand has been as much of a commercial success as the others.


It’s certainly a fancy bottle, and not just in appearance. As Select suggests, these barrels are sourced from 1 in a 100 of the stock that makes the famous No. 7. Each bottle is referenced back to the barrel, with the current bottle in the Tattersalls whiskey library (Dewey 663.5) from barrel No. 20-00364, Rick R-9 and bottled on 23-1-2020. With the usual Jack retailing at an everyman’s price of $45, this edition is pushing $100. With the same limestone cave water and charcoal filter all from Lynchburg, it’s interesting but at a price.


With the colour of Tennessee sweet tea and a whiff of summer pasture, it is soft on the palate, as is anything with caramel. As with everything from the South, it is warm and hospitable.


If country music is three chords and the truth, then my ‘good friend’ Jack’s Single Barrel Tennessee Whiskey is inviting, easy, and neighbourly. Don’t be fix’n to mix it with Mountain Dew.


With no real running races taking place, I recently entered ‘The Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee’ from Memphis in the south-west to just past Bristol in the north-east; a distance of 1,021.68 kilometres. We had from 1 May to 31 August to complete the course, but somehow I ended up crossing the state in 34 days. The trip back was done with the aid of a stent and took a bit longer.


Only able to virtually pass by Jack Daniel’s birthplace, I was a keen volunteer to review this month’s whisky of the month.


The next challenge for me is the Tattersalls New York Marathon in Sydney, taking place over the last week of October with our Run Club.

New York State of Mind

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Wednesday, August 26, 2020


Monday 26th to Friday 30th October


We are bringing the New York Marathon and all that goes with it, right here to Sydney and to you. Without a doubt, this will be the greatest event in Tattersalls Athletic Department history and possibly the history of the world.


Our event will take place over five consecutive days with a combination of five times 8.44km runs, representing the five boroughs of New York.


The Athletic Department team have put together an exclusive New York Spotify playlist, to keep you motivated whilst hitting the pavement.


Our event will culminate, in true Tattersalls tradition, with a grand lunch in the Club to celebrate our achievements…worthy of any of New York’s great establishments and featuring a New York-inspired menu.


As the event is now 12 weeks away, you have plenty of time to start getting ready and confront any fear you may have of running. All Members are welcome to participate. The AD team are taking bookings now for Members who would like a personalised running and weights plan to complement your training and to help get you both physically and mentally ready.


$50 entry fee (which is claimable as a tax deduction), which we will donate to ensure that Bear Cottage continues to provide much-needed respite for children and their families.

Christmas...same same, but different!

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Wednesday, August 26, 2020

Please keep us top of mind for any lunches or dinners and enquire now to reserve your preferred date to or on 9263 9217.





Kosher whisky all the way from Israel

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Monday, August 03, 2020


This whisky is so smart it had us wondering if it might be Scotch exported to be bottled and matured in Israel, but no, it's not - we missed the foiled and embossed stamp of authenticity - this was distilled and aged in Tel Aviv.


It’s the real deal, it drinks brilliantly and its only flaw is that at $120, it's pricey. But you know what? It’s really a bargain because this will be an instant talking point in your cabinet - and one that will see you convert unbelievers into raving fans.


In what has to be the whisky upset of 2020, this underdog has delivered us one of the finest drams of the year.



Light and golden, beyond straw.



Lifted dried fruits, floral grass and vanilla.



Smooth and sweet with a touch of caramel slightly oaky-toasty - cross between speyside and a lowland malt like Glenkinchie. Great length. It’s 46% but not drinking hot.



Released a sherbet zing and more floral spice notes, mid-palate filling out nicely.

Hudson Baby Bourbon wraps up our Whisky Club year

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, May 29, 2020


Our final Whisky of the month has arrived and we are celebrating with a live cross to New York Athletic Club for a virtual tasting, hosted by NYAC Beverage Manager and mixologist Julia Rickert. A bit about the Hudson Baby Bourbon below:


Tuthilltown Spirits Farm Distillery is New York’s first whiskey distillery since prohibition, distilling some of America’s most prized spirits in the Hudson Valley.


When you take the Hudson New York Corn Whiskey and store it in a first-use charred American Oak barrel, out pops the Baby. The barrel aging process gives this spirit a light sweetness and deep amber colour. This 100% corn bourbon has a bright, defined taste and a warm finish with notes of marzipan and roasted corn.


Tasting Notes:

Colour: Deep copper

Nose: Sweet corn and vanilla

Palate: Vanilla, sweet corn, caramel, oak with gentle floral notes

Finish: Long and slightly hot, sweet

Book club re-imagined

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Thursday, May 07, 2020


Whilst we always intended to re-launch the Club’s Book Club in 2020, it seems there is now no better time.


Why not take some time to disconnect with all that is going on in the world now and immerse yourself in a book? Then re-connect with fellow Members to discuss!


We are starting with a classic that you may already have on your shelves, and we think quite fitting by all accounts; 'Love in the Time of Cholera' by Colombian Nobel Prize winning author Gabriel García Márquez.


From the New York Times review:

"'Love in the Time of Cholera', Gabriel Garcia Marquez's radiant novel, is at once an old-fashioned love story, elegantly fashioned out of the clockwork pieces of romantic fiction, and an anatomy of love in all its forms: the gushy, irrational love of adolescents and the mature love of people who have suffered loss and grief; the high-flown love, immortalized by poets, and the love without love found in bordellos and motels; marital love and adulterous love, spiritual love, physical love, even love that resembles cholera in its symptoms and its pain…”


This month's book club meeting via Zoom takes place on Wednesday 27th May from 16:00 to 17:30.


For more information or to sign up for the book club please contact Sara at or phone 9263 9202.

Tattersalls Special Delivery

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, April 03, 2020


Whisky Club Members are starting to receive a special delivery by post. The Club’s doors may be closed but the Club is very much alive, and April’s Whisky of the Month is coming to you.


Introducing the Gospel Solera Rye Whisky, hailing from Melbourne and matured using a two-storey Solera system. But what is all this hype with this increasingly trendy ageing process? It's all about getting a consistent product that minimises delays between fermentation, where you are drawing half the whisky out of each row of barrels and using it to refill the barrels one row below. So technically, you always have a bit of the original whisky in that bottom row of barrels.


“It was a wonderful surprise and a really nice drop. Smooth and sweet with some nice cinnamon notes.” Jonathon Miller


Now the Club continues to promise to play our part in helping the whisky industry through the tumultuous period that lies ahead, by showcasing the vast array of whiskies from around the world that we have on our shelves, from Japanese to Swedish, and Australian to Indian, and having them delivered to your home.


In 1978, the Scotch Whisky Research Institute, created the first tasting wheel; a wheel consisting of eight whisky flavoured profiles, purely aimed at the industry, and what to look for in a dram. The eight sectors of the wheel are based on two sections: flavours that arise during fermentation and distillation (cereal, fruity, floral, peaty, feinty, sulphury), and flavours from maturation (woody, winey).
