The Dram Initiative #003 – The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Logo (2)

Event date:  August 20th, 2013


Ok.  Now with notes behind on us on last month’s event, it’s time to start leaking details on August 20th’s event.

Good friends of ours, Rob and Kelly Carpenter, will be coming through to share the secrets (or as many as they are at liberty to share) of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, or SMWS.  These fine folk are the founders of the Canadian branch of the Society, and are as passionate about whisky as you’re ever likely to find.

Expect another run at a wide range of distilleries, but with a bit of a twist to it.  I’ll leave a little mystery here, but suffice it to say all will be revealed.  Well…maybe not all.

In a recent conversation with the Carpenters, Rob used the word ‘Machiavellian’.  If that doesn’t give you some sort of insight into the inner trappings of the evening in store (and the sort of company being kept)…well…don’t say I didn’t warn you.

There are still a few spots remaining in the club.  If you’re local to Calgary, and think this may be your thing, do drop a line.  There is an option to come out in a try-it-and-see capacity.

Members…see you soon.

  1. Ask them about their future rum plans 🙂

  2. Rum is a spirit often aged in casks to prepare the casks to finish certain whiskies

  3. Ouch…tough crowd, you lot 🙂
