FORTY CREEK

Distillery
Founded in 1992
Forty Creek Distillery was founded by John K. Hall in 1992. John was a first-generation distiller, and he founded the company as a subsidiary of his Kittling Ridge Wine and Spirits company.

The facility is located in Grimsby, Ontario — which lays between Niagara Falls and the town of Hamilton, Ontario.

The Whiskies quickly gained notoriety and became some of the most awarded Whiskies produced in Canada, due to consistent high quality.

This got the attention of some of the larger companies in the business and they were eventually acquired by Campari in 2014.
