Kensington Calgary Malt Messenger Bulletin – Surprise Summer Sale! – Whisky News


Malt Messenger Bulletin – Surprise Summer Sale!

Surprise… we’re have a SURPRISE SUMMER SALE! This Sale is such a surprise, it is even a surprise for our staff. It seems my Store Manager Dave and I forgot to tell the floor staff about it, until a couple of days ago… Lets be honest, long weekends are slow in the retail world, so we thought we’d give you a couple of reasons to pay us a visit, whether in-store or online. If you are not in town, or are hiding out in a tent or at the Cabin, no problem, you can submit your order online, or even by email. Simply hit reply and let me know what you’d like. We have huge savings on Whisky, Wine, Beer & Spirits. In fact full 99% of our inventory is on SALE, with just a handful of exceptions. Save 10-30% on all in-stock Whisky*. Save 15-40% on all in-stock Wine. Save 10-30% on all in-stock Spirits: Gin, Rum, Cognac, Brandy & More. And Save 5-20% on all in-stock Beer. The Sale is only in-store and online (including email). No phone orders please. I have attached a PDF of all the whiskies and other spirits discounted by 15% or more. Many of them are down to just 1-2 bottles of each! You can view it by clicking this text. I have also attached a PDF of all of the Wines we have discounted by 20% or more! You can view it by clicking this link.

Sale Rules – There are always conditions, but we believe ours are fair!

  • In the event of a discrepancy in price, the point of sale at KWM will be taken as correct.
  • Sale pricing will not be retroactively extended, nor will the sale prices be carried forward beyond the end of the sale.
  • The sale pricing applies only to in-stock inventory, with the exception of exclusives. If we can get more we will honour the price on exclusive wines and whiskies – as long as they are paid for during this sale weekend.
  • Sale pricing cannot be combined with other discounts or promotions.
  • Most Scotch Malt Whisky Society whiskies are not on Sale, as are about a dozen new whiskies such as Compass Box The Circle and No Name No.2 are also excluded.

I hope this Malt Messenger Bulletin finds you well, and that you find something tempting… Please let me know if you have any comments, questions or requests. Feel free to submit an order by email if that is more convenient. As always, in the event of a discrepancy in price, the Point of Sale at KWM will be taken as correct. Slàinte!Andrew Ferguson Kensington Wine Market

Dear Malt Messenger Subscribers,

New Summer Tasting Schedule  

We Have a Wide Range of Tastings to Keep You Refreshed During the Dog Days of Summer! 

Whisky & Spirits Tastings, all start at 7PM, unless indicated:

  1. Scotch Malt Whisky Society August Outturn Tastings – Friday August 2 aka tonight!) 8PM – Want a peek into the world’s largest whisky club? We have opened up the August tastings to non members. You will taste the Society’s latest, exclusive offerings. We host SMWS tastings the first week of each month. Become a Member and you save $10 on class registration. This month’s tastings are especially cool, they involve beer pairings. Want to know more? – $50 ($40 for Members)
  2. The Price is Right: Scotch Edition – Tuesday August 6th – The wine staff had so much fun with the concept that the whisky staff went ahead and stole it! Can you taste the difference between a top shelf dram and a bargain bottling? Find out whether you’re the frugal sort or if you truly have expensive taste in this blind Scotch tasting. – $40 – SOLD OUT
  3. Compass Box No Name No.2 / The Circle Launch – Thursday August 8 – Two new Compass Box Whisky Co. limited editions is as good a reason as any we can think of to put on a tasting, so that’s exactly what we’ve done. We will be tasting the new releases: The Circle and No Name No.2. Just for fun we have tracked down a bottle of No Name No.1 for comparison. 5 other Compass Box Whiskies will round out our range! – $35
  4. Blinded by Bourbon – Thursday August 15 – Brown paper bags are covering all the bottles for this blind Bourbon tasting. We are hiding your biases from you and giving you the chance to discover – or rediscover – a new favourite! – $35
  5. Indie Cred: Unofficial and Exciting Whisky – Tuesday August 20th – Official bottlings are usually good and often great, but everybody loves an indie darling. We’ll indulge in some of Scotland’s best-kept secrets, which typically come in small batches or single casks, and on occasion…a dose of mystery! – $50
