Sparkke at the Whitmore - Adelaide, SA

Who We Are

The Sparkke Change Beverage Company (SPARKKE) is a female founded and led alcohol company producing 100% natural, award winning and predominantly mid-strength bevvies. Most recently we’ve introduced a premium, small artisanal spirit range.

We’re also a for-purpose company raising awareness and funds for important social issues through alcohol– the great conversation starter of Australia.

Launched in late November 2016 with the largest on-line pre-sale alcohol campaign in Australia’s history, SPARKKE has been challenging the entrenched cultural and gender stereotypes of Australia’s $15 billion pa booze industry ever since.

Why We Exist

We love great booze and hospo! And at the same time, we’re working to create a platform for good, for change, and a platform that celebrates diversity and inclusivity. We’re helping to change our industry, putting more of the “good” into the alcohol and the pub scene. We’re also a team of social activists representing diverse orientations, cultures, and backgrounds, disrupting an industry that’s largely male, pale, and stale.

We definitely believe that if you want to change the world, you have to help throw a better party.

SPARKKE at the Whitmore - let’s get that party started!

SPARKKE at the Whitmore is the company’s first multi-award winning brewing home. Here, makers are celebrated – our own and others - and we’re creating and serving a wide and inclusive community. Everything we do at the Whitmore is driven by our values of care for others, social equity, a passion for excellence, and inclusivity. This shows up in food, bevvies, the Sparkke Shop, events and artists, our beautiful nano brewery and the extraordinary environment of the Whitmore.

The building itself is a bit of a marvel; during our renovation process we discovered a pub within a pub. Previously undiscovered, built in the 1840s, the Whitmore was first licensed by Thomas Maslin in December 1838. We host dinners for 50, weddings for a 100, private performances for 300 or private dining/board room for 16 and all things between – every function area reveals the building’s history.

But don’t look for stereotypes here, you’re just as likely to get Adelaide’s best expresso martini as one of our 100% natural brews – like our cider (Best of Class 2017, 2018 and 2019 at the Australian National Cider Awards) – while you are sitting on Adelaide’s best roof top bar looking out over the green of the square.

We’re especially happy to say that we’re an equal access venue; we’re fully wheelchair accessible across both floors.

Emerging from Covid, we know we haven’t gotten everything 100% right, so your leadership for our brew pub is a vitally important asset.
