Canadian Whisky

Canada is one of the most common countries for Whisky production and while Whisky producing regions like Scotland and the US have put in place strict rules about how their spirits can be made and marketed, The Great White North has taken an easier approach. So don’t be startled if you don’t find any information about the mash bill or age on the label.

Corn and wheat are the primary grains used in Canadian Whisky production. The base spirit for Canadian Whiskies frequently hit proofs around 190, meaning a stronger, but less flavorful foundation, resulting in a dram that is light and sweet.

Today, In a place once known for brown vodka, there are over 30 craft distilleries and counting. Stores are starting to carry whole shelves and sections of reputable Canadian brands you'll be hearing more about.

The saviour from the North
After the Prohibition, Canada was there for its American friends with the only barrels of aged Whisky around, and they made a killing.

Canadian Whisky was the best selling liquor category in the US until as recently as 2010!

The Hiram Walker’s Distillery was one of the key suppliers during Prohibition, with Al Capone being one of their biggest customer. Records show Capone paid $7 for a case of Canadian Club and sold it in the US for $75.
