Spirit of Toronto 2018 Full Details Online – Whisky News


Website now fully updated!

Tickets go on sale this coming Monday March 26 at 10am, and the Spirit of Toronto website has now been fully updated including the schedule for our 2018 Masterclass Series. For those of you attending the show for the first time, these are sit-down tastings presented by a variety of guest speakers on the lower level of Roy Thomson Hall.

Masterclass seats may be reserved when buying tickets for the show. Those opting for Early Admission can attend one of the pre-show sessions starting at 5:30pm, and enjoy priority entry into the main tasting hall when the class is over.


Spirit of Toronto Goes Global

Get set for an edition of Spirit of Toronto that is truly international in scope, from a Taste of Italy courtesy of the Italian Trade Commission, to our World Whiskies showcase being presented by SofT friends Johanne McInnis and Graham MacKenney, to a stellar line-up of masterclasses that spans Canada, Scotland, France, Ireland, The Netherlands, Italy and the Caribbean.

We are further excited to be hosting twin entrepreneurs Joyce and Raissa de Haas for the Canadian launch of Double Dutch, their award-winning range of premium mixers billed as the perfect twin for your spirit.

In the mood for more jetsetting? Then don’t miss ‘le cinq à sept’ as imagined by Martell Cognac, or the chance to soak up the sounds and flavours of Cuban nights, thanks to our friends at Havana Club.

2018 Masterclass Series

The schedule for our 2018 Masterclass Series is now online and we’re happy with the variety it offers, be it something that appeals to seasoned connoisseurs, novice tasters or those simply looking for an adventure on the palate.

Kicking off our 2018 series is another exceptional opportunity to taste and learn with Angus MacRaild as he presents ‘That ’80s Tasting’. Dr. Don Livermore also returns to present a sneak preview of his 2018 Rare Release and fans of Lot 40 will once again not be disappointed.

You can never go wrong with the classics and with that in mind we are pleased to be showcasing some of Scotland and Ireland’s finest whiskies including Benromach, anCnoc, Old Pulteney, Aberlour, Redbreast, The Glenlivet, Greenspot and the Last Great Malts that make up John Dewar’s Fine Whisky Emporium. Closer to home Forty Creek and Canadian Club are set to present the best in Canadian whisky.

Those of you looking to explore something different will certainly find it in the ‘History and Mystery of Absinthe’ presented by Ted Breaux, distiller Patrick Zuidam’s collection of outstanding Dutch whiskies, the flavours of rum-rhum-ron presented by Benjamin Jones, or Luca Cinalli’s 5pm class on Italy’s contribution to the art of the cocktail.


Automatic Ticket Notification

Those subscribed to this list will receive an automatic notification the night before tickets go on sale. We’re often asked about the best way to purchase tickets in order to secure your first choices but regrettably we can offer no guarantees as tickets will be available online, by telephone and in person, and all three purchase methods are certain to experience a queue. Nonetheless, we look forward to welcoming you back on May 5 — see you then!
