The Companions of The Quaich is a non-profit society dedicated to promoting and sharing knowledge and enjoyment of Single Malt Whisky and was founded in 2001 by Ed. Patrick, one of Canada's foremost authorities in all aspects of single malt Scotch. Since its inception, the Society has grown from a single chapter to a present total of 22 all across Canada.

Members meet regularly at dinners and tastings in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere during which three different malts are presented by knowledgeable members, special guest presenters and malt masters or head distillers from other countries raising a greater awareness of the history and methods of malt whisky distilling, and making available brands that are not normally sold in provincial liquor stores.

The Society also organizes group trips to Scotland giving fellow members a chance to experience the magnificence of the Scots landscape and visit in person, the malt whisky distilleries in various parts of the country.
