(Shameless ATW plug for a local event and good cause…)
The 2015 MS Calgary Whisky Festival
Please allow me a moment to share the word about an upcoming event for our local folk here in Alberta:
Next Thursday, January 15th, 2015, The MS Society of Calgary is hosting one of the city’s most lauded annual events. The MS Calgary Whisky Festival has become one of the biggest and most recognized whisky fests in the country, and this year’s fest promises to live up to all that came before.
Not simply a gathering of whisky world elite (though certainly that), the MS fest is a chance to come out and do some good for a charitable cause.
“The 2015 Calgary Whisky Festival in support of the MS Society of Calgary is set to be another barnburner of an event. Last year’s festival drew 400 attendees and featured nearly 150 whiskies from distilleries in Scotland, Ireland, Canada, the US, Japan and India. This year’s event is set to be even bigger and better with over 100 different whiskies, over 30 presenters and a capacity of 500 participants. New this year we are offering a VIP package, which will include a Macallan Master Class featuring a very rare and special bottling. This is a unique chance to taste whiskies from around the world, and meet talk directly to distillery representatives. Funds raised at the event help us provide much needed services in the community for those affected by MS, as well as help fund ground-breaking research dedicated to finding a cure. Get your tickets now, they won’t last long.”
