I am meeting with David Michiels at Willow Park this evening. We’ll be chatting about how best to proceed with the Calgary Whisky Club, and in just what sort of incarnation it will happen. The potential is unlimited and the sky is the limit. Regardless of how the details play out, this will be a relatively exclusive little club (Maybe 40 people?). It will fill fast, and I imagine, as I have seen other clubs in other cities, that membership will stay relatively static. There will most likely be a wait list. If you have interest in this, please let me know as soon as possible. We’ll have to see whether or not David and I agree on this, but I would like he and I each to cherry pick a few people to join, then open it up to random membership. The caveat…you gotta be passionate about whisky! This isn’t going to be a debate club. It is going to be a whisky appreciation and connoisseur club (or at least a ‘connoisseur-in-training’ club).
If you were a member of a whisky club in Calgary, what would you hope for in return for your dollar? Be honest?
Stay tuned for further details following tonight’s meeting…
