Did you know that there are distillers in Canada producing single malt whisky? One, the Glenora Distillery, in Nova Scotia has produced a special 10-year-old Single Malt Whisky to commemorate our Royal Canadian Artillery, plus a portion of each sale will be donated to the Association. Read on and order if you are a whisky lover. The press release.
May 25, 2021- GLENVILLE, Nova Scotia: Glenora Distillery of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada, announces the release of Glen Breton UBIQUE 150th Commemorative 10-Year-Old Single Malt Whisky, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Artillery. $5 from every bottle sold will be donated to The Royal Canadian Artillery Association.
What is UBIQUE 150?
In 1871, most British troops in Canada were withdrawn. “A” and “B” Batteries were formed to take their place in manning the fortifications at Kingston and Quebec and as schools of gunnery for the Active Militia – symbolizing in both roles Canada’s new responsibility for its own defense. One hundred and fifty years later, The Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery comprises 25 units represented in 33 towns and cities from Victoria to Yarmouth. Its more than 4000 members, Regular and Reservist alike, continue to serve proudly at home and abroad, in keeping with its motto, “UBIQUE” – “everywhere”, and mindful of the legacy of those Gunners who have gone before.
“It is our great pleasure to recognize The Royal Canadian Artillery with this commemorative single malt whisky bottling. Like thousands of other Canadians, I have had family and friends who have served in our military and appreciate what they have done and accomplished; things which many of us take for granted. Glenora raises a glass to say thank you. May we all continue to remember.”
The Royal Canadian Artillery Association is holding a virtual Coast-to-Coast Toast on May 26, 2021, hosted by the Vice President RCA Association Col (ret’d) Bill Kalogerakis. Glen Breton UBIQUE 150 Commemorative Single Malt Whisky is available from Glenora Distillery’s website. Read our story at https://ubique150.org/
