The Celebrate Whisky festival provides attendees with an opportunity to try a variety of whiskies from around the world. The 2016 event, held on March 5, had over 700 in attendance, the largest Celebrate Whisky event to date.
The one day event featured 160 whiskies at the two Tasting sessions and had an additional 30 available for purchase. Of those 190 whiskies, 125 were exclusive to the event. The 2016 event also included a lunch Pairing with Richard Paterson, also known as The Nose, where attendees were able to learn nosing techniques and try five different whiskies.
Planning is underway for next year’s Celebrate Whisky Event, being held Saturday, March 4, 2017 at Casino Nova Scotia.
