Due to COVID-19 We are not able to offer in-store tastings. As circumstances change, we will review our options.
We are offering At Home Virtual Whisky Tastings on a trial basis, built around bottled stock like Whisky Gift Packs and 50ml Whiskies.
We are also offering At Home Virtual Wine Tastings, which typically include three bottles of wine with the purchase of said tasting.
You can register for the tasting online, on this page or by phone. You will need to pick up the samples prior to the tasting, or contact us to arrange home delivery.
- We offer Free City Wide Delivery in Calgary for Orders Over $50
- We can arrange shipping within Alberta for a fee.
We will contact participants a few days before the tasting with instructions on how to participate.
- Registrations can be gifted or transferred - you are welcome to allow someone else to take your place if you cannot take part in the tasting, but you will need to arrange getting them the samples if they have left the store. Please forward their name and email address to us so that we can make sure to send them the link for the tasting.
- Due to the logistics of pickup and delivery, cancellations will not be considered within 7 days of the tasting, or if you have already received the tastings samples.
- Once delivered or picked up, we cannot take the tasting bottles back.
Tastings start at 8:00pm, unless otherwise noted.
We encourage participants to drink responsibly.
