In our youth, we rode plenty of double-decker buses, but none as special as this one. Glenfiddich recently launched the Glenfiddich Whisky Wanderer, a mobile lounge painted the Speyside Scotch producer’s forest green and stocked with some of its finest bottles.

The catch? The bus, a refurbished 1972 Leyland with a pop-up roof, is in whiskey-loving Australia, Alex Raso of the AU Review reports. Onboard, visitors can sample everything from Glenfiddich’s 15-year-old Solera Reserve to its experimental India Pale Ale Cask single malt.

We’re not in Scotland anymore

Along for the ride with Glenfiddich brand ambassador Luke Sanderson is Aussie chef and restaurateur Matt Moran, who will do food pairings. If you like what you taste, there’s also the option to create a personalized bottle.

Oh, and no rush to catch the Whisky Wanderer. For its 5,600-mile debut tour, the bar on wheels will spend three years traversing Oz, with stops in Sydney in late June and Brisbane in October. They call Australia the Lucky Country for a reason. 🥃
