McGuiness Distillers Ltd.

Canada Founded in 1938
McGuiness Distillers Ltd. was founded in 1938, but their Arcadian Distillery was sold long ago to Pernod Ricard, who has since mothballed the facility.

To the best of our research at this time, McGuiness Distillers Ltd. was wholly acquired and absorbed into Cory Distillers Ltd. in 1988, and the various properties were sold off to larger concerns.

The company still has a legal address — and there is a plaque on the building stating the historical significance of the company to the Toronto area. Old bottles of their Whiskies from the 1960s and 1970s are still actively traded amongst collectors.
