Re:      The Companions of the Quaich Fall Programme

This communication is a bitter sweet one for us: bitter in that Marcus vonAlbrecht has resigned his post as President of the Companions of the Quaich, Vancouver Chapter; and sweet in that Thomas Chen and Barry Dunner are honoured to be offered the opportunity to continue the Quaich tradition. We are awed by Marcus’ fine example and innovative approach to whisky and food pairings and we will aspire to reach similar heights. Marcus, you have set the bar high!


We are thrilled to usher in the Fall 2013 whisky tasting season with a spectacular whisky tasting event, on Wednesday, September 18, with honouree Marcus vonAlbrecht.

This event will be special because:

– The theme: Five 18 year old whiskies.

– The whiskies are rare expressions, not readily available in BC.

– The whiskies range in age, region and strength and are priced from $100 – $300 per bottle (over $1,200 worth of whiskies in total).

– The event will be held at Vancouver The Lawn Tennis Club, where Chef James, in consultation with Marcus vonAlbrecht, will design a menu to complement the whiskies.
