Visiting Whipper Snapper
Do I need a booking to come to Whipper Snapper?
We welcome walk-ins at the café and bar; however, tours and masterclasses require booking in advance. Prior warning is also appreciated for large groups interested in tastings and cocktails, as it enables us to ensure we are able to accommodate your group comfortably.
Is there a dress code?
Enclosed shoes are a legal requirement on all tours and masterclasses, you may be turned away if you are not wearing the right footwear
Where can I find Whipper Snapper products?
All of our products can be found at our cellar door, or through our website. If our cellar door is too far and you’d like to buy in person, you can find us at the following:
Both Dan Murphy’s and BWS stock Upshot nationally, with Dan Murphy’s stocking Upshot Cask Strength in limited locations. You may also find us at your local independent bottle shop. If we aren’t there, ask them to stock us!
Out & About:
There are a wide range of restaurants, breweries, and bars that stock our various products. If your local doesn’t stock any of our products, tell them to get in touch with us. We can also be found periodically at various markets and festivals throughout Western Australia.
An item I want is out of stock
Unfortunately, due to popularity we may periodically run out of stock. For updates, please follow social media or join our mailing list as we will post when items are back in stock.
If the product is unavailable online, you can call our store, as we sometimes have a small amount left for cellar door sales.

Tours and Masterclasses
My tour/masterclass was cancelled due to COVID, can I reschedule?
Our COVIDSafe commitment: Yes you can. Our staff have been hard at work to reach out and reschedule bookings affected by lockdowns. If you have not yet heard from us, please contact us and we will be happy to help you find a new date that works for you.
Are walk-ins okay?
Whilst we always do our best to accommodate, we highly recommend booking in advance, as we cannot guarantee availability for walk-ins on tours and masterclasses. If you do not have a booking, you are still welcome to visit the café or bar for a drink.
I want to book a mix of normal and alcohol-free bookings
We are more than happy to accommodate mixed bookings. Unfortunately, our system does not allow these to be processed in the same transaction. If you use the same name to book, or leave a note in your booking, we will happily ensure you are placed in the same group.
I want to book a private tour/masterclass out of regularly scheduled hours
In order to operate a tour/masterclass out of hours, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us directly.
I have encountered a booking error using my gift card
Please ensure that you have used the correct gift card with the right tour option (e.g., you aren’t using a journey tour voucher to book a masterclass).
The gift card codes are case sensitive, so please ensure that codes are typed in accurately.
Please call us if you need further assistance, and we will happily help to rectify the issue.
Can I reschedule my tour/masterclass?
Whilst we are always happy to reschedule a booking, we do require a minimum of 24hrs notice prior to your scheduled booking. Any later than this may result in ineligibility to reschedule. Please call us rather than emailing, as you will need to speak with someone directly to confirm your booking has been rescheduled.
How do I book a tour with a gift voucher?
Every voucher has to be processed in a separate transaction, so please book the voucher separately to other bookings. If you put multiple bookings under the same name or write the names of your group in the comment section, we can ensure you are seated together. If you need help, please call.
Do you offer gift cards?
We currently offer two types of gift cards – tour/masterclass gift cards and dollar-value gift cards.
- Tour/masterclass gift cards
Our tour/masterclass gift cards can be purchased in-store and online. These gift cards can only be used to book tours/masterclasses and cannot be used for purchases.
- Dollar-value gift cards
Our value gift cards can only be purchased in-store. They can be used in tours/masterclasses, liquor, merchandise, and at our cafe.
Do you offer gift packs/corporate gifting?
We would love to help you put together a customised arrangement. If you would like to create a unique gift pack for a special occasion please call us or visit in-store.
