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.

SHERRY MONSTER SPECTACULAR! August 29, 2019 7:30 pm @ Winnipeg Whisky Club


The sixth meeting of the Winnipeg Whisky Club will ring in the Fall season for its members and guests who will be in attendance.

We will sample 4 to 6 higher- end sherry matured single malt whiskies together and discuss the flavours before picking our favourites.

Glenburgie 1995 ( G&M Cask Strength)

One of the highlights of the night will be G&M Cask Strength Glenburgie 1995 – a 22 year old exclusively matured in a refill sherry butt that is near mahogany in colour. The full whisky set list will be released in the coming days.

What is a sherry monster? This is a relatively new term used to describe a single malt whisky matured exclusively ( or predominantly) in ex-Sherry wine casks – barrels formerly used to mature Spanish Sherry wine. This gives the whisky a deep reddish hue, and brings about luscious red fruit notes, rich sweetness, and tannins to balance the spicy nutty earthiness of single malt distillate.

We will use the meeting space provided by club member and local Realtor phenom Gino Cipriano at 1883 Henderson Highway.

Membership in the club is $33 per month for 2019. The guest pledge for this month’s event is $40.

Members are asked to RSVP by Wednesday August 21. If you are interested membership or in attending as a guest, please contact club president Mark Kaufmann at mark@winnipegwhiskyclub.com.

Business enquiries are also appreciated.

Hope to see you August 29 at our Sherry Monster Spectacular!



Oh the summer barbecue.

The best barbecues are the simplest. Easy going friends. Great easy going food. Easy drinking beer. Easy sipping whisky. Whisky? Well we are a whisky club after all…

July 31 will be the 5th Club Night. This has been on the calendar since the beginning.

For food, we will have my homemade burgers. We will also have my wife Eunhye’s spicy Korean chicken. We will have corn on the cob, too. We will wash the morsels down with some local brews.

The “set list” of libations took careful thought. Whisky we can enjoy but not have to think overly deeply about. ‘Session’ whisky. So which whiskies/whiskeys you ask?
