Drink Seminar: Against The Grain: B.C.’s Small-Batch Grain Whiskies

Drink Seminar: Against The Grain: B.C.’s Small-Batch Grain Whiskies


Presenter: Charlene Rooke

Small-batch B.C. whiskies from the province’s craft and artisan distillers are starting to gain notice beyond our borders. Charlene Rooke hosts this guided tasting of a diverse flight of emerging B.C. whisky styles. From a bottling that won a Canadian Whisky Award in 2019 for Most Innovative to award-winning whiskies made from heirloom and ancient grains; and from terroir-driven unmalted barley and hybrid-grain bottlings to trend-setting bourbon-inspired and rye-forward whiskies, we’ll taste the best of B.C.’s barrels. At the same time, through comparative tasting we’ll start to build an understanding of the emerging flavour profile of Pacific Northwest Coastal craft whisky.
