The holidays are one of the best times of the year for entertaining, and great entertaining means having the best treats, drinks, and beverages around. Whether you need a great gift for Christmas, or just want to have something tasty around for your guests, here are seven great ideas for the holidays.
Winter was made for whisky. It’s my favorite time of year to sit down, relax, and enjoy that sweet nectar of the Scottish gods. Since it’s also Robbie Burns Day this Thursday and then Valentine’s Day, it seemed like a perfect time to talk about one of the most wonderful spirits around.
One moment it’s January and you start planning to do something big for TIFF, and the next it’s September and you’re a few days away from the festival. The last eight months have been a blur, but it’s been nothing less than a thrill ride all along the way, with challenges, and rewards, at every turn.

Sampling a fantastic Scotch is an experience that requires nothing more than a few moments to relax and let the flavours play across your palate. All you need is a good whisky, and the time to enjoy it, but having the right location, good company, and great food can make a whisky moment truly a soulful experience that goes a step beyond. Commemorating the launch of The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old, which is now available in Canada, I was fortunate to enjoy a memorable whisky moment recently with the company of The Macallan’s emeritus ambassador, Marc Laverdiere, and an excellent mix of cheeses, chocolates, and food pairings.
