CORNWALL, Ontario – The Wonderful World of Whiskey show returns for a fourth year at the Nav Centre in Cornwall from March 26 to 28.

As in previous years, this year’s event is packed with famous names from the whiskey world, educational master classes, and of course a wide selection of spirits, some debuting in North America for the first time.

Some of the top names who will be in attendance at this year’s World of Whiskey Show include George Grant, a sixth-generation owner of the Glenfarclas Distillery.

One of Canada’s top whiskey connoisseurs Davin de Kergommeaux will be on hand with copies of his new book, which is not scheduled to be released until March 30, but de Kergommeaux will have a limited number of copies with him for Whiskey Show attendees.

The Nav Centre is also excited to announce that Ned Gahan, Head Distiller at Waterford Irish Whiskey will not only be at the show but will be using the Wonderful World of Whiskey Show as a platform to launch his product in North and South America.

“Having Ned Gahan of Waterford distillery at the nav centre is an absolute honour and will help take this little show that could you the next level- people all over the world are talking about how they are attending our show,” said Ian Bentley Director of Conference Services at the Nav Centre and the organizer of the World of Whiskey Show.

Bentley is hoping for around 700 attendees to make it to the event this year, and they are already more than half sold out.

The event kicks off on March 26 with a Cornwall and area whiskey collectors class presented by Frank McDonald, Paul Desnoyers, Mike Brisebois, Darren Nelson and Renee Salhany, followed by a Glenfarclas Whiskey dinner.
