WOW! What a night! We started Club Wise two years ago and from the very first day we have built such a unique and passionate community full of members who love whisky and love the concept of #dogood and #bebetter. Our members really do live this ideology every single day and our Club Wise is just one vehicle where they are able to prove that their mission in life is to better themselves and pursue their dreams while still taking time to give back to their communities.
Our 2nd Annual Gala had it all! The theme was a Saturday Night in New York with various decor around the room that made it feel like we had been transported to the Big Apple. Everyone was dressed to impress but the gorgeous venue was the real show stopper. We hosted the evening at The Permanent building in downtown Vancouver, once an old bank and now fully renovated to be a heritage event space, this place is spilling over with character and charm in every corner - the absolute perfect place for our members to celebrate the end of another fruitful year.
As this event was private to our members plus a few guests, we aren't going to share too much more from the evening but the next best part of the night had to be the whisky! We had so many great brands with their limited expressions on hand for all of our members to taste and enjoy as well as our signature cocktail - The Wiseman - which was being served all night! Some of the crowd favourites were the Douglas Laing Big Peat, Glenlivet 18, Octomore 7.3 and Wisers Lot 52 - so good!
