CORNWALL, Ontario – The Nav Centre will be bringing paradise for whiskey lovers right here to Cornwall this March.

The Wonderful World of Whiskey show will be taking place on the evening of Saturday, March 25.

There will be more than 100 different kinds of whiskeys to try including Canadian Whiskey, Rye, Scotch, Bourbon and more.

Guests will also be treated to master classes on topics such as "A Peat Lovers Dream", hosted by Joahanne McInnis, “An Ode to The Macallan” hosted by Dave Smith and "The Audacity of Rye" hosted by Davin De Kergommeaux. Each seminar will feature a different whiskey sampling.

There will also be a lesson from very special guest, renowned Cooper Pete Bradford from Prince Edward County who will be conducting a demonstration on the art of charring a barrel.

The event’s sponsors are also offering fun activities and prizes for the World of Whiskey event.

Kings and Little Ones will be offering a beard trim and shoe shines to guests at the event and Traeger has offered up a $1, 200 firewood grill as a door prize.

"Whiskey is a passion of mine," said the Nav Centre’s Director of Conference Services Ian Bentley. "We are lucky to have this facility here in Cornwall. We are creating a world of tents in the gymnasium where people can experience more about his amber liquid."

In addition to whiskey, beer lovers will also have a chance to have some drinks from the five craft brewers that will be taking part in the World of Whiskey.

A portion of the tickets sold for the event will go to Crafting a Cure and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
