The flavors of the past but better.

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 1920s when his ancestor Joshua Booth was making Whisky. He even named the Whisky 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 char No. 2 oak barrels and finished in new American oak char No. 4 barrels, this is a Dark Oak version of the Whisky. We’re not the only ones who think it’s pretty darn tasty as it’s already won Gold at the esteemed 2022 San Francisco World Spirit Competition and 96 points with a Gold Medal at the 2022 International Wine & Spirits Competition.

They have 14 maturing warehouses currently storing 1.3 million barrels of Spirits.
Hiram Walker and Sons is the only “grain to glass” operation in Ontario.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
