See you in 2016 on Saturday May 7!

Spirit of Toronto is Canada’s annual showcase of the finest whiskies and premium spirits from around the world!

Since 2004 this spectacular gala has become a ‘must’ on the food & drink calendar: a selection of 100 plus whiskies and premium spirits, intimate tutored tastings, live jazz, a gourmet table d’hôte, food and drink pairings, dedicated cocktail bars, and the opportunity to taste and learn with brand ambassadors, distillery representatives and industry professionals.

Coming in from out of town? Stay tuned for our group rates with various partner hotels—these and other details of the 2016 edition are in the works and will be announced on this website and by email for those subscribed to our Updates list.

A big thank you goes out to all the staff, exhibitors and guests who made this year's Spirit of Toronto a night to remember!

Once again masterclasses were fully subscribed and we extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our esteemed presenters who shared their samples and knowledge with our guests.

Those of you who kept to the show floor were equally spoiled for choice courtesy of our exhibitors, as well as a selection of rarely seen Canadian whiskies, sips of 30 and 40 year old whiskies for those who dared to test their palate in our Blind Whisky Challenge, a stellar showcase of Authentic Caribbean Rum, and a Japanese whisky bar complete with freshly prepared sushi and Edo-inspired highballs.


And of course, there were the lucky few of you who braved the scrum for a precious taste of the Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2013, recently named the Best Whisky in the World.

But a picture is worth a thousand words so please check out our Photo Gallery!

Have a great summer and we look forward to hosting you again in 2016!
