Why we do this
Simple: to dispel the notion that all whiskeys smell (and taste) like the insides of your grandfather's never-washed gumboots.
They don't. (The whiskies we mean).
And with one of our whiskey sessions, you too will realize that this ill-scented impression has no basis in fact. Probably started by an angry non-whiskey distiller. Not that we're starting rumours or anything.
But, "Wait!", you say.
Whiskey is for hipsters... and monocled, moustached ascot wearing aristocrats... or bearded and extra-girthed motorcycle club members... blues singers... country singers... rock and roll musical groups... tax-evading hillbillies... brooding authors... heavily accented, kilt-sporting, tam wearing chieftains, right? Well, perhaps. But whiskey's range is so diverse, there is a whiskey for most everyone's legal palate. Explore and discover yours with one of Dram Straight's whisky sessions.

You're in the Ottawa area? Perfect. So are we. Give us the inside dope: is this a party with friends... celebrating a corporate takeover... want to find what the big deal is about this whiskey thing anyway... or perhaps you want explore this rich, delicious and history-soaked creation? Drop us a line and let's set something up.
While it's always Noon somewhere, we suggest having your whisky session anytime after Noon in the Ottawa area.
Oh, and yes, Dram Straight is Smart Serve Certified.
"Renaud from Dram Straight is a whiskey mentor of the finest caliber.
I recently had the pleasure of experiencing his 2 hour tutorial on
American whiskies. I never realized there was so much variety,
complexity and history to this wonderful drink. Renaud's encyclopedic knowledge, his wit and his warmth made the two hours fly by and
I left with a thirst to discover more. I can't wait until the next whisky session with Dram Straight on Highland Whiskies."
Please enjoy responsibly but spread the word with methodical abandon.
