The water of life comes in so many flavors. Whether you prefer your whisky born on the rocky shores of Islay, or in the heathery streams of the Highlands, there is a Scotch for everyone. Come join us to experience the vast palette of Scottish whisky and find your favourite.

The mission of the Alberta Scotch Society is to promote the responsible enjoyment of Scottish Whisky. We do this through scotch tastings, dinners, social events, after work, relaxing, and just about anywhere that is appropriate to enjoy a fine whisky.

There are no other truly Albertan communities for those of us who enjoy our whisky. From novices to aficionados, the Society is about bringing people together over a wee dram to share stories and enjoy life.

A Tale of Two Whiskies - Demolished & Defunct

A Friday the 13th tasting so tragic, we couldn't risk running it on Friday the 13th. We have two fantastic whiskies from distilleries that didin't survive.

First, we have a Soveriegn bottling of Port Dundas 36 y.o. What once was one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and a cornerstone of Diageo's grain-whisky production. Alas, a black cat was found in the distillery and Diageo decided to close the distillery and move production to Cameronbridge.

Our second whisky came from a distillery that suffered from a broken mirror in 1983, and was immedately demolished. In a stroke of luck we've gotten our hands on a 32 y.o. Douglas Liang bottling of Port Ellen.

  • Port Ellen 32yo (Douglas Laing)
  • Port Dundas 36yo (Sovereign)
