Canadian Mist is a well known brand of blended Canadian Whisky. But more than being popular, it is also highly regarded for its consistency and quality. It even won a Double Gold Medal (unanimous vote) at the 2009 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
It has been rated as one of the top ten highest rated Canadian Whiskies on the market. Canadian Mist follows a very Bourbon-like recipe, including corn, rye, and barley in the mash bill.
However it is triple distilled, giving it a lighter and less-sweet character than most Bourbons. Look for notes of toasted rye bread, with orange marmalade and vanilla.

The Canadian Mist distillery was built in 1967. In 1971 it was sold to Brown-Forman. All of the production at the Collingwood Canadian Mist facility is done on-site. Everything from the mashing, to maturing the Whisky in all-season storage warehouses.
Canadian Mist even manufactures their own barrels, to ensure the optimal charring of the casks. Canadian Mist is one of the most well-known Whiskies from Canada. At one point in the U.S., it was the best-selling Canadian Whisky brand.
Canadian Mist is a blended Whisky with a mash bill of corn, rye and malt. It is a light, aromatic drink, bottled at 40% ABV, with sweet notes of toffee, vanilla, citrus, fruitiness and grassy aromas. There is also a nice spicy rye influence.
The distillery uses stainless steel continuous stills integrated with copper, which is very important for the development of the aroma. Canadian Mist is triple-distilled in a temperature controlled environment. They produce about three million gallons of Whisky per year.
