Past Offerings at our Whisky Tastings

Douglas Liang & Co


A Passion for Whisky

Last year the Edmonton Scottish Society was pleased to have Douglas Liang & Co. provide 6 of their Remarkable Regional Malts to our Whisky Tasting.
Established in 1948, Douglas Laing is a proudly independent, family owned Scotch Whisky business in its third generation. Over 70 years of heritage have helped us to refine our processes, and deliver Whisky that is consistently exceptional in its offering.

Abiding to the philosophy of presenting Whisky as the Distiller intended, we add nothing and take nothing away from our spirit, enabling Whisky lovers around the world to come as close as they possibly can to sampling a dram straight from the Cask.

If you loved the offerings from the Douglas Lang & Co Remarkable Regional Malts you can have some anytime you want. We have stock in the Pavillion Bar and they may make an appearance at this years Whisky Tasting. We are offering them at our Whisky tasting again this year before we select a completly new line up for 2024.
