In lieu of an All-Star game this year, we are pleased to introduce a new incentive for the 2019 Gordie Howe CARES Pro-Am, a Private Party with the NHL Alumni. This year’s event will be an exclusive Whiskey tasting event.
This past year J.P. Wiser’s partnered with the NHL Alumni Association to celebrate the past in both hockey and whisky tradition by releasing regionally exclusive, limited-release whiskies, with unique blends that reflect the playing styles of Wendel Clark, Lanny McDonald, Paul Coffey and Guy Lafleur. In true partnership, a group of NHLAA members visited the home of J.P. Wiser’s – Hiram Walker & Sons Limited Distillery in Windsor, Ontario (Distillery of the Year, Canadian Whisky Awards 2018) to understand the craftsmanship behind Canadian whisky with master blender, Dr. Don Livermore.
On Friday, May 10th at 2:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. the Top 20 fundraisers, along with the NHL Alumni will be invited to attend a private whiskey tasting with Paul Coffey and our friends from J.P. Wiser’s at the National on 10th Avenue’s Bourbon Room (341 10th Avenue SW, Calgary) along with a Canadian Whisky Ambassador who will be onsite providing samples of these limited release whiskies. Each attendee will leave with a bottle of the Lanny McDonald exclusive whiskey.
