No doubt, this past weekend was quite eventful. Literally! From various Nuit Blanche activations, to luxury pop-ups, free ice cream giveaways, and above all else, free whisky cocktails!

Wiser’s brought their first-ever Toast Recording Studio and Whisky Bar pop-up to Queen West, as part of their national ‘Hold It High’ campaign. What better way to get or keep warm Saturday night when the temperatures dropped to the single digitals, than with samples of the newly released J.P. Wiser’s Old Fashioned Whisky Cocktail?
