Drink like Paul John this April

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, April 13, 2018

 

This month's Whisky: Paul John Edited Indian Single Malt Whisky.

 

While unrecognisable to many on our continent, Paul John is a man of taste. Widely known across the Indian sub-continent Paul John has built a luxury business including the 4th largest liquor company in India and the acclaimed Kumarakom Lake Resort, Kerala.

 

In April, it’s your chance to experience a little of his luxury with Paul John Edited Whisky.

 

ABV 46% Edited is for the extraordinary. We poured forth all our mastery into crafting this Single Malt. The hint of peat has been skilfully created from discreetly chosen cask profiles. All to delight the true whisky connoisseur. Hear the sea off Goa tell its own stories, unedited.

 

Nose: Honey and cocoa are laced with a hint of smokiness and a shot of espresso. A deeper whiff reveals fruity fragrances.

 

Palate: The grassy flavours of barley show up first, but gently make way for subtle peat notes. They slowly dissolve and pave the way for a rush of mint and mocha.

 

Finish: The finish is long and drawn out. You can sense a hint of spice and chocolate mint as it ends on gentle peat notes.

 

Colour: Amber gold.

 

Pairing: The hints of peat and chocolate mint in this Single Malt are perfect with a mildly spiced lamb stew, or even dark chocolate.

Home is where the heart is - Paddo Pale Ale

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Monday, April 02, 2018

 

Sydney is fortunate to have a number of breweries in CBD, the closest being the Sydney Brewery.

 

So this month we are going micro-local.

 

The Local food movements aim to connect food producers and food consumers in the same geographic region, in order to develop more self-reliant and resilient food networks; improve local economies; or to have an impact on the health, environment, community, or society of a particular place.

 

From the heart of the city, Sydney Brewery is dedicated to creating the best craft beers and ciders in Australia. Brewed lovingly by hand in small batches, each variant is designed to epitomise the local style, personality and people of the suburbs that make this city great.

 

Like the suburb it was named after, this American pale ale has it all. Somehow though everything’s kept in just the right balance and proportions. So, on first tasting, look for a true citrus and floral ale aroma, but then stand back for a full malt experience, followed by a big bitter finish. The Paddo Pale is triple hopped with enigma, galaxy and Amarillo hop flavours. See, it’s got it all. And it’s all good.

 

Come and try some Paddo Pale Ale today, and for Craft Beer Club Members your complimentary glass awaits!

 

Join the Craft Beer Club. $50 per year allows you to try 10 craft beers throughout the year. For more information, contact Sara at sarapeelgrane@tattersallsclub.org or phone 9263 9202.

 

 

 

 

 

Our new Autumn Menu is here - come and try it now!

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, March 09, 2018

 

Kicking off March and the beginning of Autumn is this month’s Food and Beverage specials, with another delightful cocktail in honour of our reciprocal relationships abroad and fresh Aussie seafood.

 

The Amarillo Martini, an addictive concoction of Tequila, Triple sec and cranberry juice, is a nod to our American friends at the Amarillo Club in Texas where tequila is as much celebrated as it is in Mexico itself.

 

To match the bite of tequila and the underlying sweetness of the cranberry, the Amarillo Martini has been paired with steamed Spring Bay Tasmanian black mussels infused in a Napoli sauce with white wine, garlic, fresh herbs and chilli.

 

A generous bowl served with toasted ciabatta bread and a martini is a very near perfect way to spend a long lunch away from the office!

 

If that isn’t enough to tickle your tastebuds, then our new menu inspired by fresh Asian and Middle Eastern flavours and quality Australian produce surely will. With a focus on items to share, some features of the menus include baked camembert with roasted garlic and ciabatta; and the charcuterie board with cured meats, cornichons, olives and bread.

 

For something a little more, we have a crispy skinned North Queensland line-caught barramundi fillet with a Thai-style sambal and Asian green salad, or the Greek lamb shoulder accompanied by quinoa tabouleh and tzatziki.

 

We have not forgotten those sweet-toothed diners either; Chef Nathan’s own twist on a classic is now available – vanilla, thyme and honey crème brûlée, plus a tart yet satisfying lemon and coconut syrup pudding with creamy vanilla ice cream.

 

Reservations reccomended; phone 9263 9216 or email dine@tattersallsclub.org

 

 

  

 

Toast to Burleigh (and apologies to Teddy Roosevelt)

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, March 09, 2018

 

As an Athletic Club, we have a healthy amount of silverware. At best we know the triumph of high achievement, and at the worst, at least we have failed while daring greatly, so that our place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

 

Cross a surf-loving, Hawaiian, young-gun brew master with a Gold Coast girl who detoured through a career in corporate law while dreaming of creating a very special business – and you get the inspiration for Burleigh Brewing. Burleigh Brewing from our north in Queensland with its German style hefeweizen has not disappointed in the silverware stakes.

 

Gold Medal - 2011 World Beer Championships

Silver Medal - 2015 World Beer Championships

Bronze Medal - 2013 World Beer Championships

 

Burleigh Brewing HEF boasts the classic German wheat beer characteristics of banana and clove, rich flavours, a bright white head and a smooth, creamy texture. It is an unfiltered, refreshing, flavourful beer without being overpowering.

 

Get in and toast another great Australian craft brewer!

Whisky of the Month - March

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, March 02, 2018

 

This month's Whisky, reviewed by Joseph Azize - Westland Distillery, American Single Malt.

 

Colour:Light copper, probably indicating moderate maturing in oak casks, and that there would be minimal or no caramel additive.

 

Nose:Held at a little distance, fresh and medicinal, reminiscent of parsley. Nosed at and beneath the rim, initially sweet spice, strengthening to crushed nutmeg.

 

Palate:The welcome is sweet, turning dry. After reception across the mouth, predominantly dry. Always with a mellow oak ambience.

 

Water: releases fruity aromas, softening the sweetness and accentuating the raisin and toffee notes. A modulated flavour of barley, but no discernible peat or smokiness. Some unusual orange rainbow chard notes. As it is imbibed, it presents a winey oak taste which dries the mouth, while being sharp and a little moist on the upper palate: a nice contrast.

 

Finish: a good strong centring finish which leaves a glow in the solar plexus (the hall-mark of the best whiskies). Pleases and relaxes the throat as it descends. Nice mellow impact. A few minutes afterwards, the malty and cereal tones crest, and crown the experience. Ten minutes later, the taste, the impact and the warmth all linger: malty and cereal, with a reiteration of the fresh parsley insouciance which marked the first nosing. Mint after notes flicker in the throat for a satisfying appetiser.

 

Thank you Joseph for your amazing review!

Whisky of the Month - February

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, February 09, 2018

 

Hayden Remnant reviews this month's Whisky - Craigellachie 13 yo Single Malt.

 

Colour - a pale golden which bodes well.

Nose - certainly smells like Scotch!

Palate - slightly sweet with light smoke and peat.

Water - a dash softens it and lengthens the palate.

Finish - pleasant warmth and quite mellow. Does not disappoint.

Great choice!

 

From the distiller:

 

In 1891 a Whisky expert noted that Craigellachie represented a style of Whisky seldom met with now. Today they still use old-fashioned worm tubs to cool their spirit and bestow it with extra flavour, creating a dram to rival Whiskies twice its age.

 

A worm tub is a long copper tube, sitting in a large tank of cold water, which snakes back and forth and gradually gets narrower. Craigellachie is one of the few distilleries still benefitting from this traditional technique.

 

Thanks to Hayden for being our first reviewer of 2018! Whisky Club Members your complimentary dram awaits.

 

Membership is $50 which we can charge to your house account. This entitles you to a dram of each of our 10 Whiskies throughout the year, and $5 per dram for those Whiskies thereafter.

Savour Murray's Angry Man Pale Ale – but please don't be angry!

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Thursday, February 01, 2018

 

It doesn’t get much more Australian than Kangaroos & Boxing. Put it on a label with a map of our great state and you can hear the Oi, Oi, Oi’s from here to Broken Hill.

 

The Angry Man Pale Ale however clearly reflects our proud multicultural heritage as it is a classic US pale ale. Australian, English and German malts balance the huge citrus/pine hop aroma. Strongly influenced by generous use of US Centennial and NZ Motueka hops.

 

Murray and the team have been brewing unique and off-beat naturally crafted beers since 2006, and in the process have won a bunch of awards and accolades – including Australia's Brewer of the Year 2017.

 

The craft beer bug bit Murray a few years before this, when he was on a trip to America. Legend has it, he tried a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale at a roadside diner in California – and thought he'd died and gone to beer heaven! This experience inspired him to open his own brewery, so he could brew and enjoy the beers he wanted to drink back home in Australia.

 

February's craft beer of the month, our first for the new year. Don’t miss out!

Chestnuts - The secret to Christmas in a bottle

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, December 01, 2017

 

We are a long way from the streets of London where roasted chestnuts rule yule, so we have laboured to bring these to you, our growing throng of aficionados.

 

So far we have travelled through Fremantle (WA), Adelaide (SA) and onto Camperdown (NSW) in recent months and this iteration draws us south.

 

Hand crafted in Beechworth, we head to the craft brewing heartland of Victoria. That statement is of course subjective and may just be because there are more hipsters in the south of our great nation. (#FactCheck).

 

Nonetheless, we bring you a unique Australian Pilsner, brewed in Beechworth from chestnuts grown locally in the Beechworth and Stanley hills. The Chestnut Pilsner also uses Galaxy hops from the Rostrevor Hop Garden in the nearby Ovens Valley. As with any of the world’s best pilsner's the most important ingredient is time, and they have allowed this beer plenty of it, with each batch aged for around 3 months before release. Bridge Road Brewers have created a gem of a beer through experimenting with local produce, a truly local brew!

 

This unique lager is very pale and presents a crisp ‘pilsner’ like profile combined with a distinct nutty character owing to the use of chestnuts in the mash. The crisp clean profile of this beer lends itself to the summer months and can be paired with seafood or lighter dishes.

 

Yours now to enjoy at the bar with one of Chef Nathan's seafood specialities.

 

If you would like a complimentary bottle, join the Craft Beer Club. $50 per year allows you to try 10 craft beers throughout the year. For more information, contact Sara at sarapeelgrane@tattersallsclub.org or phone 9263 9202.

 

 

 

 

 

Whisky of the Month - December

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, December 01, 2017

 

Phil Smith reviews this month's Whisky - Deviant Distillery Anthology Series 5.

 

"Light and pale in colour, this spirit has an aromatic floral sweetness to the nose. The palate is heavy and smokey with a sharp finish. Adding a little water smoothed it out well, although it lost a little of its punch. The finish was clean and smooth with clever plant hints."

 

From the distiller:

 

Matured by science

We like whisky aged as much as the next guy, but we’re a little impatient–and 10 years is a long time to wait. Our founder is an industrial chemist, so he invented a distilling technology that can create the flavour of a 10-year-old whisky in just 10 weeks. That’s less than a footy season, and the technology is winning awards just as fast. Call us the Elon Musk of the whisky world.

 

Kind to mother earth

More than 200 million litres of whisky evaporate from barrels into thin air each year. That’s nearly $10 billion worth. Think of how many Teslas you could buy. (We’ll wait.) Our clean technology is carbon neutral, turns waste into electricity and saves 1 million litres of water every year. We’re on a path to becoming one of the world’s cleanest distilleries.

Whisky of the Month - November

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Thursday, November 02, 2017

 

Thank you to Peter and Jonathon Miller for this months review!

 

"I am glad the Tattersalls Whisky Club is not obsessed with Single Malt and is revealing some interesting Blends from time to time.

 

The Six Isles is one such whisky and an interesting one, as its component parts hail from six Scottish Islands. Most of them are in the West but also Orkney which is to the North East. It is a pale whisky suggesting delicacy, yet has distinct character. Light peat and heather on the nose. Like walking through a Scottish vale (!).

 

I thought butterscotch on the palate. Jono detected Vanilla. The label referred to honey. We declared it a draw. Arriving at general agreement that the Six Isles was a worthy Whisky of the

Month there was only one thing left to debate: Did the addition of water improve this whisky? Jono thought yes. I didn’t give a damn. Slàinte" - Peter Miller

 

"I didn't give a...dram? (Sorry couldn't help myself)! My notes read similarly.

 

As follows: Colour: soft, light. Possibly a little too yellow.

Nose: definite peat, touch of vanilla and brightens with water.

This was also true of the palate: a zing on the front end and finishing broad, butterscotch and possibly an oak barrel (I would hope!)." - Jonathon Miller

Whisky of the Month - October

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Thursday, September 28, 2017

 

Thank you to Peter Klug for reviewing G Rozelieures de Lorraine Single Malt Whisky

 

This malt is a light, honey colour with good clarity. The nose is aromatic and interesting but I found it difficult to identify the dominant aroma (which I read later was described by the maker as toasty). There is an underlying complexity, which is attractive. The palate is woody and slightly peaty without the latter being prominent. The finish is medium in length, pleasant and warming.

 

A small amount of added water seemed to significantly loosen the flavours and make them more accessible.

 

Overall, it is an interesting, idiosyncratic and very pleasant, single malt French whisky of moderate complexity, which I would drink with a small amount of water. I definitely would have it again.

Whisky of the month - September

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Tuesday, September 05, 2017

 

Thank you to Peter Collins and Peter Obern for being our inaugural Whisky Club reviewers!

 

The Glenfiddich IPA is a delightful honey coloured single malt, that is light bodied and fruity with a lasting taste. Adding a drop of water greatly enhanced the flavour, and gave it a smooth and long sweet finish. A really nice taste, that could be quite dangerous as it is very more-ish! I would recommend it to all Whisky Club members and encourage more Tattersalls members to join in the fun of the Whisky Club.” - Peter Collins

 

“It was a wonderful opportunity to review the Glenfiddich IPA. The whisky had a lovely light golden colour with slightly unusual but rather floral and hoppy aromas. It was light and smooth and came alive with the addition of a drop of water with a long lingering finish that seemed to grow over time. The whisky was slightly different in that there was no hint of oak and I’d strongly suggest taking time to not rush the experience as it will grow on you. It was a fabulous way to finish the day and one I’d recommend to anyone interested in whisky.” - Peter Obern

New Spring Menu Launched!

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Tuesday, September 05, 2017

 

 

Our chef always finds inspiration in the change of season, and the move into Spring is no exception. New dishes are light and delicious, with a focus on sustainable and ethically sourced produce.

 

The new season brings some unexpected surprises for us, and for Spring it looks like it’s all about the colour on the plate.

 

Chef Nathan sources fresh, line-caught barramundi and huge banana prawns from the oceans surrounding North Queensland, local grass-fed, free-range meats and the freshest produce from surrounding farms, free from pesticides and chemicals where possible.

 

For lunch and dinner, whether in the Dining Room, Member’s Bar or Pool deck, we are sure you will find a tasty dish to make your mouth water!

 

Try our black mussels with tomato, garlic and wine, or the Spring green pea salad with mint, feta, hazelnuts and crisp pancetta. If you are craving something a little more (or to share) then prepare your tastebuds for the slow braised lamb shoulder with farro, golden raisins and pistachio or the fillet of barramundi with butternut squash, roasted peppers and chipotle lime butter.

 

To satisfy your sweet tooth, we highly recommend the orange and polenta syrup cake with citrus, toasted nut crumb and vanilla bean ice cream or hot cinnamon doughnuts with Nathan’s salted butterscotch ganache.

 

Our new Pool Bar menu now also offers a number of options for dine-in or takeaway, to ensure your energy levels are reignited after your lunchtime and evening workouts.

 

We know we will see you in the Club very soon – we can hear your bellies growling!

 

 

 

  

 

 

Whisky of the Month - August

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, August 11, 2017

 

All the way from Japan; Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky.

 

The originality of this 100% malt expression lies in its unique distillation method. Malted barley is distilled in a “Coffey Still”, a traditional continuous still which is normally used to produce grain whisky. Discover this whisky’s extraordinary texture, which Nikka has specially developed for whisky aficionados, and is perfect as our Whisky of the Month.

 

TASTING NOTES

The nose has darker aromas like pecan shells and a touch of char smoke. The palate is full of American whisky flavours like vanilla, coconut, and maple, but the malt gives the whisky a balance that allows the whisky to not be oily and overly sweet. What also ties the room together is the spicy quality from the barrels that break up all of the sweet notes.

Caol Ila lies hidden near Port Askaig, and has been affectionately named the hidden malt. Caol Ila produces a full bodied smoky malt conjuring up images of traditional peat cutting and fishing industries of days gone by.

 

Caol Ila 12 year old is fresh, fruity and smooth bodied. A classic expression of the Caol Ila is as rounded and clear as the shapes of the pot stills spicy sea-air aromas, light fragrant smokiness and sweet smoky-dry flavours with the lingering, charred-dry finish of what makes Caol Ila one of the most appetizing of Islay’s malts.

 

Nose: Intense and rich, with malted barley and gentle floral touches overcome by smoky notes.

Palate: Light and fresh, with toffee, vanilla and pear balanced by smoke and ashy touches.

Finish: Complex and long, with sweetness fading to leave dark and smoky flavours.

Membership is $50 which we can charge to your house account. This entitles you to a dram of each of our 10 Whiskies throughout the year, and $5 per dram for those Whiskies thereafter.

Whisky of the Month - June

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Friday, June 02, 2017

 

This month we bring you Hybrid Whisky from 23rd Street Distillery in Renmark, South Australia.

 

You say whisky, I say whiskey. Let’s call the whole thing intriguing. We dare to blend the best of both worlds: Scotch with Bourbon. Round malted flavours, rich sherry characters and toasty oak bamboozle and seduce. Why can’t we all get along this well?

 

Head Distiller Graham Buller collected prime barrels of Scotch whisky and American Bourbon whiskey, with a dream of creating his perfect blend. And who are we to deny such alchemy? The Scotch has an average of five years barrel maturation and the Bourbon two, while the final blend has gone back into bourbon barrels for finishing.

 

Distinctive, unusual, delicious. Toasty Oak like aromas with hints of sweet sherry are lifted and sweetened by floral and fruity notes. Rounded malt like flavours and the rich sherry characters are evident on the palate, with as toasty oak and somewhat oily nuttiness to the finish. To be savoured neat or with a little water or ice.

Tattersalls Club staff have a theory...that our beautiful pool has the elixir of youth within!

 

One of the many benefits of the Tattersalls AD Membership is the opportunity to join the swimming program the Club provides:

 

Swimming Squad- Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 06:45

Stroke Correction- Wednesday Lunchtime from 12:30 - 14:00

Swimming Races- Tuesday and Thursday from 13:30

 

The success of these programs is highlighted through the incredible achievements of our Member's in Master's Swimming Championships, ocean swims and many other competitions.

 

Whether you are a serious swimmer, a swimmer for fitness, or just in it for fun, our Tattersalls Swimmers would love to welcome you.

 

In addition to swimming the group is very social; meeting for Friday breakfast in the Club, attending our regular 'fin review' breakfasts with special guest speakers, travelling annually to Maui for the channel swim, and supporting each other at local swims.....a great way to meet new like minded friends and be motivated and inspired!

 

 

 

  

 

 

Tattersalls Whisky Club - May

Posted by Tattersalls Club on Thursday, May 18, 2017

 

Our American love affair ends (at least for now) with Sazerac Rye Whiskey, which symbolises the tradition and history of New Orleans. Rye Whiskey dates back to the 1800’s, around the time when saloons, veiled as coffee houses, began lining the streets of New Orleans.

 

It was at the Sazerac coffee house on Royal Street where local patrons were served toddies made with Rye Whiskey and Peychaud’s Bitters. The libation became known as the “Sazerac” and America’s first branded cocktail was born. This is the Whiskey that started it all.

 

NOSE

Right out of the bottle there is caramel that borders on toffee. There is a hint of something salty sitting alongside a touch of cinnamon, honey, a light fruitiness and some toasted grains.

 

TASTE

Pepper, a touch of cinnamon and a very pronounced rye bread flavour. There is a very bourbon-like flavour profile that runs through with a hint of vanilla. Notes of a very sweet dulce de leche caramel that is rounded out with some paprika, liquorice and cherries. While the rye flavour is pronounced the spice is muted and lingers in the background making this a very accessible rye.

 

FINISH

Initially savoury with paprika, rye and nutmeg that quickly dissolves to sweet orchard fruit before fading to a soft oaky finish.
