The Whisky Wisemen Society hosts both public and private; monthly, quarterly, and annually around the world. Listed here are 3 major annual events to be hosted.
The Whisky Wisemen Society is proud to announce the first ever Whisky Wisemen Inaugural Charity Golf Tournament in the city of Vancouver, B.C. Whisky Wisemen is dedicated to create sustainable fundraising models, and this year we are excited to add a new channel of fundraising to our roster. With the tournament's title sponsor Glenmorangie, this event will bring together a love of whisky, the enjoyment of the sport, and a day of fun for golfers and non-golfers alike.
To our golfers, sponsors, volunteers and friends, the Whisky Wisemen would like to take a moment to show gratitude for all who spent the day with us July 13th, at our Inaugural golf tournament. Each person that joined us for the day was instrumental in making it a day of success.
We trust that you had a fantastic time!

Be Wise Speaker Series & Whisky Festival
For the first time in Vancouver, a professionally-organized whisky Speaker Series developed exclusively for a select group of business leaders and change-makers will kick off October 20th 2017. This year’s inaugural event is hosted at the beautiful downtown Terminal City Club. In true Whisky Wisemen fashion, we wanted to go far and beyond the standard of conferences and whisky festivals. Instead we thought, why couldn’t we do both?
The Be Wise Speaker Series will bring multiple industry leaders to speak to the 3 objectives of the Whisky Wisemen:
To make a movement
Create a sustainable fundraising model
To Educate our community
But for us, we didn’t want to stop there; instead, we asked the question of how we make Wise with this opportunity. In a time to share and build with our community, the best way to accomplish this is to do it over whisky. That is why our speaker series will have 3 formal whisky tastings between speakers and end with a reception with whiskies from around the world to taste and sample.
Join us and fellow business professionals for exceptional speakers and over 60 different world-class whiskies to taste and sample.
WHISKY WISEMEN AND CALGARY STAMPEDE
On July 13th our Whisky Wisemen YYC Chapter partnered with several sponsors to host a hugely successful private Stampede event in support of the local charity Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids Society (BB4CK). The event was hosted on the extensive rooftop patio of ONE18 Empire Restaurant & Whisky Bar in downtown Calgary and was attended by approximately 600 individuals representing clients, friends and family of sponsors including Calgary Jewellery, Mercedes Benz, Oris Watches, Glenmorangie, and National Bank of Canada.
A range of amenities were available to guests including a cigar lounge, dedicated scotch bar, comfortable seating areas, food and drink stations and an indoor entertainment area with pool and foosball tables. The event was capped off with a live auction featuring items including an Oris Watch valued at $3,500, a professionally commissioned artwork, and a 25-year old Glenmorangie bottle with Baccarat glassware.
Charitable proceeds generated by the event greatly exceeded expectations; auction proceeds totaled $14,676 with an additional $6,000 in private donations resulting in an overall amount raised of $20,676 for BB4CK. All parties were beyond satisfied with this result and Whisky Wisemen YYC looks forward to hopefully making this into an annual event.
