B.C. liquor stores will have an extensive array of extremely old and rare scotches, and fine whiskies from around the world available at the premium spirit release this weekend.

Widely considered the biggest event of the year for spirit aficionados and collectors, the event includes highly sought-after bourbons from Kentucky, whiskies from Ireland, Wales and Canada, hard-to-find Japanese whiskies and a cognac from Camus.

The event will include high-quality products in the $50 to $100-range and for real enthusiasts — a $36,000 bottle of Glenfiddich 50-year-old single malt.

“With sought-after bottles in every price range and style, this year’s selections give everyone — from whisky enthusiasts to avid collectors — the chance to explore the world of fine spirits,” said Adele Shaw, B.C. liquor stores category manager for spirits.
