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.

Robbie Burns Dinner

Change of Venue - we'll now be holding this event at Kelly's Pub downtown.

We'll be celebrating the Bard's birthday with whiksy, poetry, pipes and haggis burgers. Wait, what? Yes, a spin on the haggis with tattie and neeps done in a truly Albertan way. On a bun. With fries.

This is also a special event for us as this will be the last time our Master of Malts, the sensational Andrew Walls will be performing a Burns dinner in Edmonton. After this he is off to Victoria to represent a brand new Canadian Distillery.

The exact bill-o-fare is still being settled, but it will be a 5 course meal paired with whisky featuring a haggis burger with tatties and neeps fries.

Not a whisky fan, or are a designated driver? Buy a non-drinking ticket. Kelly's has a full service bar, so you can order to your preference.

Kilts encouraged.
