WindsorEats is launching a social club for your senses.

The League of Extraordinary Taste will be a series of events geared towards showcasing the skills of culinary professionals in unique spaces.


The first league event will be taking place within the J.P.Wiser’s facility in Old Walkerville on April 2, 2015, showcasing the skills and flavours produced by J.P. Wiser’s and their Canadian Master Blender, Dr. Don Livermore.

Born in Fordwich, Ontario, a small town one hour north of Waterloo, Don showed a keen interest in microbiology at a tender age. Inspired by a Grade 10 biology teacher, Don pursued this interest and obtained his BSc in microbiology at the University of Waterloo. Don also completed a MSc and a PhD in Brewing and Distilling at Heriot Watt University.

A pioneer in analytic techniques in the brewing and distilling industry using infrared sensors, Don has also authored a chapter in The Alcohol Textbook 4th Edition, an industry reference standard for scientists and engineers.

This League event is the perfect opportunity to pick the brain of a whisky expert in an intimate setting while enjoying the flavours
