Whisky Wisemen Society is a not-for-profit organization started in Vancouver and founded on a love for whisky and the desire to share that with a like-minded community once a month. We didn't just want to sit around drinking without purpose but rather we wanted to make sure we were also doing something to improve ourselves and for the betterment of our community.
Since January 2013, we've hosted #socialwhisky events on the #thirdThursday of every month at Shebeen Whisk(e)y House in Vancouver's historic Gastown district. Since then, we have expanded to several other new cities, opening Chapters in Victoria (YYJ), Calgary (YYC) and New York City (JFK) in 2015 and now Grand Cayman Island (GCM) in 2016. Each Chapter city hosts their own monthly #thirdthursday event where the premise is the same for all: the first 50 people to attend receive a complementary ounce of whisky sponsored by Glenmorangie and after that, 10% of each patrons bill goes towards a designated local charity partner. We also have created our unique and delicious signature 'cocktail for a cause' The Wiseman, where $1 from the sale of each drink also goes to assist that Chapter city's charity partner which is driven by supporting bars in each Chapter city.
Our charity partners for 2016 are determined by each Chapter city committee and can be found on our Chapters page. All funds raised in each city through the events and cocktail sales goes to support their charity of choice - bettering that community through whisky!
Our mission is to develop and expand this model to other cities around the world and create a global community of change-markers who want to #dogood and #bebetter. We aim to encourage every individual to push the boundaries in their own personal and professional lives in order to reach their maximum potential. Our value proposition to everyone is to do one thing each day that betters you and the community you live in.
No matter what your situation in life we believe it is always possible to help others and to view the world holding a glass half full. Join Us!
