The Diefenbunker Museum is hosting its third-annual whisky tasting fundraiser.
With the help of Geoffrey Skeggs, master sommellier, guests will taste the wide range of flavours, aromas, and colours available in single malts and blended whiskies. Guests will learn how various influences determine the distinct characteristics in particular whiskies and the importance of ageing and the process of maturation.
Part travelogue, part history lesson, and certainly a multi-sensory experience, guests will taste 5 different whiskies with 5 different food pairings. Light fare, tasting notes, and educational handouts are all part of this event that is sure to be a social and tasteful delight!
In addition to the whisky and food pairings, there will be a selection of prizes for raffle, with all proceeds going to the preservation of the Diefenbunker. Please note that there is no ATM on site, and as such raffle tickets are cash-only.

When & Where
Diefenbunker: Canada's Cold War Museum
Welcome to the Diefenbunker: Canada's Cold War Museum & National Historic Site!
This four-story, 300 room, 100,000 square foot underground bunker was meant to house 535 Canadian government officials and military officers in the event of a nuclear war. Shrouded in mystery, the Diefenbunker, nicknamed after then Prime Minister John Diefenbaker, was designed and built in secrecy during the crest of Cold War fear, between 1959 and 1961.
With its extraordinary engineering and architectural features, the Diefenbunker: Canada’s Cold War Museum is a poignant reminder of one of the most turbulent periods of modern history.
The blast doors open to the public from 11:00am - 4:00pm, 7 days a week.
