It seems that appreciation of whisky and whiskey are on the rise here in Calgary. There’s not one, but two whisk(e)y events going on in the next week or so. Calgary Co-op is hosting their first-ever World of Whisky and Cognac Gala, and the Calgary Library Foundation is featuring their first-ever Bob’s Eye Opener Scotch Tasting (click that link, ‘cause I’ve got tickets to give away!).
On Friday, November 3, Co-op Wine Spirits Beer will host between ten and fifteen whisk(e)y producers from around the world, and a variety of cognacs. Running from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm, this tasting event includes a buffet-style dinner, and you even get your own Glencairn whisky glass to take home with you. VIP Admission is now sold out, but general admission tickets are still available via the Co-op Wine Spirits Beer website for $100 each.
