Sample some of the world’s finest whiskies and raise a glass to end multiple sclerosis. Mix and mingle with whisky lovers and industry experts while roaming the room, tasting from over 100 whiskies from more than 35 different vendors!

Have you ever wondered why sometimes it’s spelled ‘whisky’ and other times it’s ‘whiskey’? As part of our ‘Master Class Series’, ticket holders will learn more about whisky from those who make it. The classes are designed to dive further into the whisky making process, from mashing to fermentation to distilling and of course drinking. Stay tuned for details on this year’s hosts. You won’t want to miss out on these experiences!

Proceeds of this event benefit the MS Society of Canada – Calgary & Area Chapter. For more information about the MS Society, please visit
