The Whisky War Is Over — and Fet’s Won!


Long-time readers will perhaps remember the great Whisky Raid of 2018 when the forces of law and order raided Fet’s Whisky Bar on Commercial Drive and absconded with 242 bottles of the really good stuff.

Now — as Eric reports it — “after five years, two enforcement hearings, a Judicial Review and a hundred thousand dollars in legal fees later, a couple of tenacious restaurant owners won their case against an out-of-control provincial liquor regime and two hundred and forty-two bottles of some of the world’s rarest whiskies are being returned to them.

Good for them, and a shame that it took so much and so long to straighten out.

My question: what is happening to all the bottles once the restaurant closes at the end of this month?
