The Smorgasbord takes place Wednesday October 30 on Henderson Highway past Chief Peguis Trail from 7:00 to 10:00 pm.

This momentous event is in association with the whisky club social movement known as Drams for Fams which started with the Edmonton Scotch Club in 2016 and has begun to spread to clubs around the world.

At the Scotch Bourbon & Rye Smorgasbord, members have offered up their own bottles of whisky to cut club expenses in order to maximize our impact on the Foundation’s coffers.

10 or more bottles of the good stuff from around the world will be shared to members and guests who wish to enjoy sharing a dram with every cent of their $33 dollar dues going to the children’s charity.

Attendees can choose any 6 of the luxury liquids to enjoy in the cozy warm Winnipeg Whisky Club atmosphere. light snacks will be served.

Members are advised to RSVP promptly. Anyone who would like to join us for a few Drams for Fams or to become a member please contact club president Mark Kaufmann at mark@winnipegwhiskyclub.com.
