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: Battle for Independents

Two Bottlers. One Whisky. This next installation of our Tale of Two Whiskies will be a Battle for Independents. We take two bottlings from two independent bottlers and pit them head-to-head.

In the clear bottle with the amber liquid is the Dewar Rattray Glen Grant weighing in at 11 years. In the, uh, clear bottle with the, other, amber liquid is the Duncan & Taylor Glen Grant weighing in at 16 years.

See how maturation and wood selection can affect a spirit in this unique taste-off! This is a free event, but space is limited so please sign up.
