The Whiskytown Festival returns this Saturday, August 10th, 2019 in Old Walkerville.

Participants will be able to imbibe in a variety of domestic and international whiskies and cocktails at a festival dedicated to whisky in the city known as Whiskytown, Canada.

This year, six representatives from participating distilleries and brands are supporting the event and will be on hand to mingle and discuss whisky with festival goers.

  • Dr. Don Livermore, Master Blender for J.P. Wiser’s
  • Jamie Johnson, Brand Ambassador for Canada, The Balvenie
  • Taylor Corrigan, National Premium Whisk(e)y Ambassador, Old Forester
  • Tish Harcus, Global Ambassador, Canadian Club
  • Joshua Groom, North American Brand Ambassador, Gibson’s Finest
  • Matt Jones, World Whisk(e)y Ambassador to Canada

The festival will take place on the grounds of St. Mary’s Anglican Church in the historic Walkerville neighbourhood, the original company town created by Canadian Club founder, Hiram Walker.

Alongside Canadian whiskies will be whiskies from around the world as well as a few rare options.

The festival has secured the only bottles of Woodford Reserve Cherry Wood Smoked Barely currently available in the province as well as the Canadian Club 41 year old.

“The event is a great opportunity to sample entry level and higher price point whiskies you may not feel comfortable spending $300 on a bottle for,” Adriano Ciotoli from Windsor Eats.  “This means the festival is perfect for those just being introduced to whisky as well as connoisseurs.”

Whisky-based craft cocktails will also be served by WindsorEats and local businesses Maiden Lane Wine & Spirits and Walkerville Eatery.

There will also be beer on tap….with a twist. In keeping with the whisky theme, The Grove Brew House has brewed a whisky-infused imperial stout specifically for this festival.

Tickets are $30 per person and includes 5 tokens that can be used towards food and drink. Tickets can be purchased at
