The Companions of The Quaich is a not-for-profit society dedicated to promoting and sharing knowledge and enjoyment of Single Malt Whisky, founded in 1999 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 total of 20 all across Canada.
Members meet regularly at dinners and tastings in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere during which various 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 members and guests a chance to experience the magnificence of the Scottish landscape and visit distilleries in various parts of the country.
