A tasty and award-winning revival of two separate decades.
Corby Spirit and Wine was founded in 1859. It is located in Corbyville, Ontario, Canada — a very small, rural town about 120 miles WNW of Toronto just off the north shore of Lake Ontario. The old, abandoned distillery building can still be found there. Today, Corby Spirit and Wine is based in Toronto, has more than 200 employees, and is closely aligned with mega-Spirits-giant Pernod Ricard who has taken a 46% ownership stake in the company. Corby produces several brands of Spirits and markets Pernod Ricard products in Canada.
The first edition of Lot No. 40 was actually designed back in 1998 by Master Blender Michael Booth: it was how Booth envisioned 100% Rye Canadian Whisky was made in the early days of Canada when his ancestor Joshua Booth was making Whisky. He even named after the plot of land that was given to him.
Today, Lot No. 40 100% Rye Whisky is created by Master Blender Dr. Don Livermore who altered the original recipe a bit based on his PhD findings. Made from unmalted Rye and aged in brand new American oak barrels, this is a complex and smooth 100% Rye Whisky that won 95 points and a Gold Medal at the 2022 International Wine & Spirits Competition.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Lot No. 40 100% Rye Whisky and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
