You’ll receive a commemorative Glencairn whisky glass, an event program, a gourmet buffet throughout the evening and, of course, over 175 whiskies to sample. You can enter to win a bottle of whisky a month for a year and bid on a number of whisky-themed silent auction items. The evening’s festivities will also include music and Irish dancers.

In addition to what regular admission ticket holders receive, VIP ticket holders have access to the ballroom a full hour prior to regular admission 6:00 – 7:00 pm and each VIP attendee will also receive a goodie bag. Because VIP ticket sales are limited, you will have more time to chat with the distillery representatives and some might even be pouring something special for the hour!

These VIP hour whiskies are provided at the discretion of the distillers in extremely limited quantities, and as such, we cannot guarantee that every VIP whisky will be available to all VIP attendees.

Our Whisky Masterclasses provide a great opportunity for you to learn - and taste! They are conducted in a small classroom-style setting on the second floor of the Delta Edmonton South. Doors open at 6:30pm and we ask that all attendees head straight up to their classes first before joining the festival. You will get checked in upstairs and receive your commemorative Glencairn whisky glass and event program before the class.
