Hiram Walker

Hiram Walker is Canada's largest distiller and blender. Hiram Walker was an American entrepreneur and founder of the Hiram Walker and Sons Ltd. distillery Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

After purchasing land across the Detroit River, just east of what is Windsor, Ontario, he established a distillery in 1858, in what would become Walkerville, Ontario.

Walker built the business to great success, becoming Canada's top export Whisky, and the Hiram Walker & Sons Distillery remained in the Walker family until 1926 when they sold it to Harry C. Hatch.

Founded in 1937, as part of a reorganization of the Canadian company, Hatch founded Hiram Walker & Sons (Scotland) Ltd. Since then the company has gone through several ownerships, consolidations, and massive acquisitions of major operations, and is now part of Pernod Ricard (France).

The Canadian Club brand is owned by Beam Suntory, a subsidiary of Suntory Holdings of Japan. The Hiram Walker facility has the largest distillery capacity in North America, with 37 fermenters.

They distill 180,000 liters of alcohol every 24 hours, operating 24 hours a day, five days a week. They produce several products including Vodka, Rum, and Canadian Whisky.
