1st Annual Vancouver Whisky Festival @ Terminal City Club
Vancouver finally got its first legitimate whisky festival! Usually it is Victoria that gets all of the attention since it is one of the best in North America as it has been running longer but also because of its premium reputation, however this year, the Fountana Beverage Group decided to launch a complimentary festival in Vancouver which followed the Victoria one and would highlight some of the less recognizable and more rare offerings in the marketplace like Amrut, Kavalan and Springbank to name a few.
The Festival reached out to us and provided media access so we could attend and cover the event for them and we kindly obliged!
Tickets were $190 each and included access and unlimited tastings from 6-930pm in the grand tasting hall of over 120 whiskies with food and chocolate pairings. The event also offered a guided tour and whisky specific tasting sessions as well as a classic cocktail presentation.
We saw some familiar faces but also got to meet some new members of the whisky community and others where we have only been in touch online so it was a great experience all around and can't wait for next year!
