Canadian Club is one of the most well-known and popular Canadian Whiskies in the world — being sold in 55 countries.
It is so well known that it is often ordered by patrons and listed in cocktail recipes by its initials alone — CC. It is a blend of classic Canadian-style Spirits that are aged a full six years, and married in white oak.
The high-rye spice comes through, but is mellowed by the longer than average aging process. Look for fresh cut grass and corn flakes on the nose, with a gentle palate that includes notes of nutmeg and molasses.

The Canadian Club Distillery is another one of the many facilities created by industry legend Hiram Walker, in 1858.
Hiram started his career as a successful grain merchant in Detroit. But he built his first distillery just across the Detroit River in Ontario — a fact that would become crucial to its continuing success during Prohibition, placing it just out of reach of US authorities.
The Canadian Club Distillery is a production power-house. And it has to be since the core Whisky is the most popular international brand of Canadian Whisky in the world, being sold in 150 countries. After several ownership changes over the years, the facility is now owned and managed by Pernod Ricard.
