GLENORA

Distillery
Founded in 1989
The story of Glenora Distillery is a classic David and Goliath tale. You see, Glenora is an upstart youngster—founded in 1989 by Bruce Jardine.

But as soon as the Scotch Whisky Association heard about it, they did what any self-respecting trade association in the pocket of major international spirit conglomerates would do… they filed a lawsuit saying that no one could use the word “glen” in their company or product name.

We’ll spare you the details, but a long trial and three appeals later, the Canadian courts dismissed the appeal, approving the label to be used.
 
Anyway… since then they have won awards, started selling internationally, and have made great Canadian single malt Whisky (one of four producers of Canadian Whisky in the Scottish tradition).

Their range includes a couple of different agings and an really interesting “Rare Ice” edition, aged in casks used to make the exotic Ice Wine from Jost Vineyards, just up the road in their native Canada.

What does Glenora taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Glenora Canadian Whisky. It's based on all Glenora drinks in our large database and gives you a chance to taste Glenora before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
