Whiskey dinner table

The Arts Club Theatre Company, in partnership with Kale & Nori Culinary Arts and Legacy Liquor Store, will be hosting an evening to celebrate the finest in Scotch whisky. Featuring a tasting, four-course dinner, and cocktail pairings, the intimate event on Thursday, July 12 will benefit Canada’s largest not-for-profit theatre company.

Whisky originates in Scotland, and translates to “water of life” in Gaelic. It’s one of the country’s most famous and popular exports. The Arts Club dinner will serve as an ideal opportunity to delve into the long history of the revered malt elixir as well as taste cutting-edge cocktails.

The evening will take place at Legacy Liquor Store’s communal harvest table and focus on four premium whiskies: Ardbeg (Islay), Auchentoshan (Lowlands), Benromach (Speyside), and Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban (Highlands).
