From whisky beginner to seasoned aficionado, there is something for everyone in this immersive experience.

The work of metal artist Stefanie Dueck and ceramic artist Janaki Larsen will be used at our table to accompany our meal.

Vancouver civic historian John Atkin will give a talk on the history and craftsmanship of the iconic Roedde House.

THE ROEDDE HOUSE MUSEUM

In 1890 Gustav Roedde opened his own bookbinding business as G.A Roedde Bookbinders and by 1893 was successful enough to afford to build a house in the new West End neighbourhood of Vancouver. Roedde House, design attributed to famed architect Francis Rattenbury, is a City of Vancouver-designated Class A Heritage House.

Since 1990, the Roedde House Preservation Society has taken painstaking care to restore and furnish the house to reflect the ambience of late Victorian family life. The Museum offers a unique experience for visitors: unlike many heritage houses, the rooms are not roped off or behind glass, and some of the artefacts may be handled with care. Each of the eleven rooms has been furnished with artefacts and period items, which were collected over the years, some returned by the Roedde family.

Includes Tasting & canapés
