Companions of the Quaich Christmas Heels Party Calgary Alberta – Scotch Whisky News


7PM Tuesday December 8th South Calgary Community Association

This year’s distillery is  Ardbeg,  and the theme is giving; giving away heels that is!  Everyone attending is required to bring at least one ¼ full bottle of single malt (a heel), festively wrapped.  These will be collected at the door, numbered and then raffled off after the blind tasting; everyone is guaranteed to win one, and if you bring 2 you’ll end up with 2!  You may not receive exactly what you want, in fact we’re hoping you won’t; that will encourage you to trade with others until you do!

There will also be a silent auction to raise funds for the chapter!  Donations don’t have to be large, expensive, or extravagant; anything will help us on our way…  Jane Cameron is on point, with respect to the silent auction; she can be contacted at !  I suggest that you alert her in advance with what you are planning to donate.

I look forward to seeing all of you there, and Merry Christmas.
