It's fall, so there's nothing better than the warming feeling of whiskey in the belly. So, today's hike will take us to a pub with some of the finest whisky tasting in Toronto.

For those questioning what a DRAM is (I sure was the first time I attending this event), it is a measure of capacity equal to one-eighth fluid ounce, which is what you get in a glass of whisky.

For this hike, we will head out to Dufferin Grove using some of the city's trails to get to a pub with one of the largest collections of single- malt whiskys in Canada. Hike should be about 9 KM long.

At this pub, they offer not just some good whisky, but they also do whisky flights to help you try a variation. For those of you who prefer traditional drinks, they also have other drinks.

Anyone who signs up for this hike, must be willing to come and socialize at the pub primarily:

  • 1. Because, you could be taking a spot away from someone on the wait list who otherwise wanted to attend.
  • 2. Also because I have a reservation and they are expecting a certain amount of people.

    Otherwise, come out and have fun

  • Required Items to Bring:
  • Good footwear
  • Water
  • Appropriate weather clothing
  • Money for the pub
  • Recommended Items to Bring:
    Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
