Our map of the 16 Sydney bars celebrating local bees and single malt this August

Aberfeldy 12 is known as the Golden Dram, and that's thanks to its honeyed, fruity character. And although those characteristics are on full display whenever Aberfeldy 12 is served neat, it's also a Highlands single malt that plays well with cocktails.

That's why Aberfeldy has teamed up with bartenders from 16 bars across Sydney for the month of August, sharing resources on how to use honey in drinks, the importance of bees to our ecosystem, and loads more — all in aid of a great cause. Aberfeldy will make a donation for every cocktail sold to the Wheen Bee Foundation, an Australian bee charity promoting the importance of bees for our food security.

In the interactive map below, you'll find each of the 16 participating bars, what they're serving, and where to find them.
