Kilchoman with Anthony Wills – Starry Night Virtual Whisky Festival | November 27, 2021 at 2 pm MT (Virtual Event)

November 27, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join Craft Cellars for our Starry Night Virtual Whisky Festival in support of The Alberta Children’s Hospital and the Matteo Shafer Legacy Fund.

Since the first Starry Night Whisky & Wine Festival in 2017, over $150,000 has been raised. This has facilitated the acquisition of vital equipment such as an Ultrasound unit and speciality beds for children in need. The event was started in memory of Matteo, a member of our extended family, who passed away from brain cancer at the age of 9. Matteo’s parents created The Starry Night Fundraiser and Matteo Shafer Legacy Fund to keep his memory alive and to help other children like Matteo. The focus of our fundraiser this year is the ACTION Project – Alberta Cellular Therapy and Immune Oncology Initiative. The ACTION team will focus on developing next-generation cellular immunotherapies – a new form of cancer treatment that harnesses a child’s own immune system to tackle their particular cancer.

Anthony Wills, Founder and Managing Director

Anthony and his wife Kathy created Kilchoman from a collection of derelict farm buildings in 2005, in doing so they established the first new distillery to be built on Islay in over 124 years. Their passion for whisky and ambition to revive the lost traditions of farm distilling has transformed Kilchoman from a fanciful dream into a celebrated reality.
