You're invited to join Jim Murray in Victoria, BC for a one day Whisk(e)y event on May 9th. Plans include a book signing and sit-down dinner, culminating with a four-hour tasting event including Canadian, Irish, Scotch and American whiskies.
This event is one of three or four planned throughout western and central Canada as Murray re-visits Canadian distilleries to update his writings for his 2006 Bible. I'm not sure if Murray is planning on visiting Ontario.
Any SB.com members interested in making the trek to Victoria (Seattle is only 2 hours away) are welcome to PM me for further details as they come available.
