Whisky Wisemen Society is a for-purpose (not-for-profit) organization founded on a love for whisky and the desire to share that love with a driven and impactful community. We are an engaged group of young professionals who didn't want to just sit around drinking without a purpose. We started in Vancouver and have since scaled up to chapters across Canada, the US, and the Cayman Islands. In the process have raised more than $60,000 for charities such as Zajac Ranch, Brown Bagging for Calgary Kids and Backpack Buddies. Further we have raised awareness for impact both in our communities and worldwide – all while enjoying some of the world's finest whisky.

Vancouver’s best curated group of young professionals.
