Canadian Club whisky is simply the most famous whisky from Canada. The company was founded by grain merchant Hiram Walker in 1858. The brand is currently owned by Bean Suntory.Their first distillery was located on Walkerville, Ontario purposefully to take advantage of the very high quality local grains. As “Club Whisky”, so called as it was sold in many gentleman’s clubs, became more popular and started taking sales away from American whiskies, the US Government insisted the country of distillation be added to the label and Canadian Club was born. The grain bill for this whisky includes rye, rye malt, barley malt and corn. The corn whisky is the base whisky whilst the other grains produce more flavoursome whiskies that all make up the secret blend. The various distillated are distilled separately prior to blend and they are then aged in used American white oak casks for 6 years, three years longer than the 3 years minimum it must do by law. Canadian Club is the companies flagship whisky. Canadian Club has received the royal warrants of Queen Victoria, Edward VII, George V, George VI, and Elizabeth II.
