Occasionally free events come our way, and sometimes with limited sample sets or seats. In such cases where seating/samples are limited, a draw will be held for spots separately for Elite and Enthusiast members.
What kinds of whisky and spirits?
Scotch, Bourbon, American, Canadian, Irish, Japanese, and “World whiskies”. Other great quality spirits may be served like rum, Tequila, Mezcal, Cognac, Armagnac, Soju and etc. The focus of the club is on mid- to high-quality whisky and spirits to go beyond the basics and discover the heights of flavour.
How much whisky?
Typically events will have at least 7 different whiskies or spirits to taste approximately 15ml
samples with Club guidelines set for 3.5 to 5 ounces or 105-150ml served for events (excluding BBQ & Gala)
At time of writing the Club expects January to April or May to be online. We hope our Badass Bourbon BBQ in July will be offline as well as other events, pandemic dependent.
Who picks all these great whiskies?
Whiskies and spirits are selected by President Mark Kaufmann (YouTube’s Whisky Whistle) and VP James Burton with the help of board members and member suggestions.
