Scotch Highland Malts: Copper Night II June 26, 2019


This coming June 26 at 7:30 pm in downtown Winnipeg will mark the Winnipeg Whisky Club’s fourth club night.

For enquiries and membership details please contact the club at:

Following the success of last month’s sold out Copper Night I, Club President Mark and Copper Night sponsor Hardwired Electric’s Rory Wright decided to put together this reprise.

Copper Night II focuses on the Highland Whisky Region of Scotland, and in particular the Northern and Eastern subdivisions. Four distilleries will be showcased, namely Balblair (Edderton, Ross-shire), Tomatin (Inverness), Benromach(Forres, Morayshire), and Knockdhu Distillery (Knock, Banffshire).

Here’s a map showing Scotland in her entirety and a second with a closer up view of the distillery locations:

The showcased whiskies are definite powerhouse malts:

Balblair 1999 2nd release – 46% vol

Tomatin 1995 – 46% vol

AnCnoc (Knockdhu) 24 Year – 46% vol

And the highlight of the night:

Benromach 1998 20th Anniversary – 56.2% vol

While this is only a smidgen of the full course of the region, there is a formidable chunk represented in a single evening, and a connoisseurs’ chunk at that.

We will open the Club Night with a Highlands inspired cocktail made by a club member who happens to be a noted Canadian mixologist.

There will be whisky tasting appropriate snacks and a small tidbit to enjoy with our WWC Highlander cocktails.

While such malts could be sipped and savoured all night, we will close the event at approximately 10:00 pm.

Members are encouraged not to drive even though quantity of alcohol consumed will be relatively minimal. Please have a substantial dinner without beer or wine beforehand.

This, my dear Winnipeggers, will be a great event to continue this malty journey we have begun. It will also be a hum-dinger of a beginning should this be your first event as a member.

Once again, please contact club president Mark Kaufmann at for membership enquiries.
