Charities

Whisky Wisemen Society

Whisky Wisemen Society is a not-for-profit organization started in Vancouver and founded on a love for whisky and the desire to share that with a like-minded community. Since 2013, we have expanded to several other new cities, opening Chapters in Victoria (YYJ), Calgary (YYC), New York City (JFK), Toronto (YYZ), and the Grand Cayman Island (GCM). All funds raised in each city goes to support the chapter’s charity of choice – bettering that community through whisky!

Callanish Society

Callanish creates a healing space for people who have been irrevocably changed by cancer. It inspires those who are living with and/or dying from cancer to reconnect with the essentials of life—and in doing so, to feel soothed, strengthened and restored. At the heart of Callanish is a weeklong retreat that provides a gentle catalyst for revitalizing the spirit. After more than 20 years and over 75 retreats, Callanish has evolved into a far-reaching community deeply rooted in the fundamentals of what it means to be human.

Tip A Wee Dram is an annual whisky tasting fundraiser benefiting registered local charities and not-for-profit organizations in British Columbia. Founded in 2010, the event has grown substantially over the years into what local whisky lovers consider to be Vancouver’s springtime whisky festival. Tip A Wee Dram is organized and executed entirely by volunteers, contributing over $200,000 to the Callanish Society, the BC Cancer Foundation and the Whisky Wisemen Society.
