Lee Hanson has been in the wine and spirits business for over 27 years. Starting in restaurants at too young an age sparked a life long passion for fine wines. This lead to a number of sommelier positions in Calgary and the Caribbean as well as cellar hand opportunities at 3 California wineries. In all of these locales Lee was able to explore the area by foot, a love of distance running is an amazing introduction to what a town has to offer. Upon returning to Canada a smoldering interest in Scotch whisky was stoked when Lee had a hand in relaunching the Bruichladdich distillery of Islay. The bold and honest approach of these whiskies and the exposure to single cask-single malts would become the cornerstone of Lee's working life. In between incredible travel opportunities and many kilometers on foot, Lee found the time to start a family, and has the love of 4 daughters to fill his days. In 2013 Lee founded Barrel Hunter Import and Brokerage, working with family owned distilleries and wineries. A new partnership was formed with Select Wines in 2019, as the Spirit Ambassador. Lee now has the honour of sharing the Hunter Laing whiskies as well as Tesseron Cognac and more all across Canada.
