25th Annual Whiskey Tasting & Highland Brunch

From 1826, Allan Macpherson House has been an integral part of Napanee’s history and, since 1968 it has been a living museum of life in Upper Canada operated by the Lennox & Addington Historical Society. For more than twenty years part of that tradition has been our Whiskey Tasting Event. More than just our single largest fund raising event, you will spend the afternoon sampling some of the finest Scotch or Irish whiskeys made today. Served in a (nearly) 200-year-old home your ticket will include a Scottish buffet of smoked salmon, scotch eggs and other traditional delights of the palette.

Our success as a museum over these past forty years is due to the hard work from countless volunteers and the generous support of the local community. We believe that this event could be an opportunity to support both your business and Macpherson House. How? Through a Full or a Patron’s sponsorship of our premier event on November 3 rd. With a Full sponsorship, we would also like to offer you a complimentary invitation to the Whiskey Tasting. A $75 dollar value to you and a chance to publicly accept our thanks for your support while you enjoy this unique event.
