Seats Remaining: SOLD OUT Mark Reynier's Waterford Distillery has been making waves in the Whisk(e)y world over the last year. The Irish distilleries first whisky releases have received acclaim from critics and members of the trade. Waterford's focus is on the barley, paying very close attention to what they call Teireoir. But that is just a part of their recipe for the quality of their young whiskies. Long fermentation times, yeast selection, very precise distillation and rigorous cask selection all play an important role. We'll sample our way through the first 6 Waterford Whiskies to come to Canada, as well as a surprise 7th whisky. The tasting will consist of 7 15ml samples. A zoom code will be emailed a day before the tasting. Andrew & Curt will be leading this one, with a Zoom link to be emailed out a day before the tasting. *SAMPLES WILL BE READY FOR PICK-UP ON MARCH 22!

Seats Remaining: 8 Malbec is the signature grape of Argentina, but it didn't start there. It used to be a popular blending grape in Bordeaux and was nearly wiped out because the growing conditions weren't ideal. Once Argentina got a hold of Malbec clippings and planted the vines in high elevation vineyards, the grape began to thrive and significantly increased in popularity. Now you'll see Malbec grown in several countries around the world. We'll sample 3 Malbec wines from different countries showing you a variety of styles and proving that the same grape can be very different depending on the region. Celebrate World Malbec Day with us on Saturday, April 17.
Each tasting kit is designed for one household, or at least two people, where you will receive 3x 750 ml bottles.
Samples will be ready 7- 10 days before the tasting. The Zoom link will be sent to you 24-48 hrs prior to the tasting event.
Seats Remaining: SOLD OUT The Covid-19 pandemic hit just days before we were supposed to host our first-ever Rare & Old Whisky Festival. We were gutted to have to pull the plug, but it was the right decision. It may still be a year or more before we can put on a festival-style tasting in-store, but we can still have some fun. There are more than a few old and rare whiskies we want to taste, and we know we are not alone in this. So we are putting on a new virtual tasting series, "Rare & Old: Things Andrew Wants to Try!" As the name implies it is built around a range of old and rare whiskies Andrew wants to sample. The first session will include: Auchentoshan 1988 PX, Bladnoch 25 Year, Blackadder Raw Cask Glen Scotia 1991, Glengoyne 30 Year, Pittyvaich 29 Year and Port Askaig 45 Year; a range of whiskies which would set you back about $6000+gst. Andrew's sampled the Port Askaig 45 Year on numerous occasions... but he loves it and wants to taste it any chance he gets! 8PM Thursday April 22. Includes 7x15ml samples. A zoom code will be emailed a few days before the tasting.
*SAMPLE SETS WILL BE AVAILABLE BY MARCH 22.
This event is sold out.

Seats Remaining: 12 We received some very rare and curious new whiskies from Valinch & Mallet recently. Most of them were limited to just 4 bottles each. We could have just sold them all off to those quick with their mouse. But that's not how we like to handle things. So we reserved the stock of the most sought-after whiskies for a special tasting to be hosted by Valinch & Mallet co-founder Davide Romano. We will sample the: Bruichladdich 19 Year, Caperdonich 20 Year, a "waxy" Highland Malt (cough Clynelish) 24 Year, Imperial 24 Year, Ledaig 10 Year, Ledaig 25 Year and one other whisky.

Seats Remaining: 18 GlenDronach Brand Ambassador Stewart Buchanan will be your guide as we sample through a range of 8 GlenDronach single malts. We were lucky to receive one case for each of six different Batch 18 GlenDronach vintages, and they sold out almost immediately. We love GlenDronach whisky, and we're just as curious as anyone as to what they are like. So we held back a bottle of each for a tasting. We are rounding out the lineup with the new GlenDronach Port Wood and the GlenDronach 21 Year Parliament. It is a range of whiskies that would set you back more than $5K, should you even be able to track them down... A zoom code will be emailed the day before the tasting. SAMPLES READY FOR PICK-UP APRIL 7.
The online tasting is set for 5 PM SATURDAY MAY 8!
