Nature Tastes returns with two curated evenings one focused on ciders and another on Scotch whisky.

Thurs Jan 31, 2019:

Our popular Nature Tastes event returns as we focus this time on ciders.

Museum botanist Paul Sokoloff will explain the botany of apples, along with other fruits used for cider. Discover the apple’s origin in the wild and how humans have diversified it into the fruit we enjoy today.

A cider expert will be on hand to explain the different types of ciders and the processes in making them.

You’ll have the opportunity to savour some ciders from different producers. The samples will be paired with light snacks.

Cost
• $45 (tax not included)
• 19 years of age and older; I.D. required.

Thursday, February 28:

This next Nature Tastes adventure takes you and your palate to the regions of Scotland to sample different varieties of single-malt whisky.

Whisky connoisseur Johanne McInnis (the Whisky Lassie) will guide you through the Scotch whisky tastings as your palate discovers a range of flavours from delicate to rich, from zero peat to peaty.

Explore connections between plants and whisky—from barley to botanists, and the fascinating peatlands in between—with the museum's moss specialist and Botany Curator Jennifer Doubt.

Enjoy tastings of single-malt scotch paired with canapés and other edibles that enhance the unique characteristics of each whisky.

Cost
• $70 (tax not included)
• Members: $63 (tax not included)
• 19 years of age and older; photo I.D. required.
