Attended the Willow Park Wines and Spirits Whisky in the Warehouse event in Calgary Wednesday night. What a great event. My congratulations to the Willow Park group for putting this on.
Met Lawrence and WestvanDave and a host of west coasters at the event. That was a highlight for me, as Lawrence and Dave are great people and very knowledgeable about the malts. They seem to be quite good salesmen also
There were 33 distillers or independants there with ~ 120 expressions. Very casual with the displays scattered through out, so one could just wander about and sample as you wished.
The folks presenting were knowledeable in their products and skilled in explaining the attributes of the various expressions they had.
Alas I did not take notes , but I did come away with Christmas wish list
Meet a lot of people from long distances away that come every year, especially from BC due to the cost difference of product in Alberta.
Certainly recommend Whisky in the Warehouse for any that are close enough to attend.
