Sense of Taste

These days, a trip to the bottle shop is usually a strictly grab-and-go type of visit. You know – get in, get your drink of choice, get out. Sense of Taste at Portside Wharf is more than just a bottle shop. It’s an emporium of fine goods that is looking to change how we interact with our local liquor store by offering a range that will educate and tantalise. Seriously, this place is like a wonderland. In 2023, Sense of Taste Portside underwent a bit of a facelift, doubling its footprint and considerably bolstering its range of libations. An 18-month procuring process saw the crew add a whopping range of wines, champagnes, craft beers and spirits to its offering, with a sharp focus on whiskey ensuring fans of the peaty potable have plenty of reasons to visit. In addition to booze, Sense of Taste also stocks a broad range of gourmet deli goods and gift hampers. More elbow room means more space for activities – guests can now linger longer and enjoy a drink on site, with a by-the-glass menu dispensed via an enomatic wine machine, available alongside cheese platters.
