Whisky Dinner with Morris at Archer’s Restaurant

We enjoyed a top notch 4 course Father’s Day Whisky Dinner at Archer's restaurant in Marriott Melbourne Docklands with Morris Whisky, a premium award-winning Australian whisky producer. This dinner was part of a series of dinners highlighting premium whiskies from award-winning Australian distilleries.

We began the evening with a fabulous Whisky Sour in Ada's, the hotel's main bar. We understand the bar is famous for its whisky cart that is rolled out in the evenings.
