Canadian Whisky reinvented and redefined
Canada has not always been known for whisky, but distillers are changing this notion and producing some of the best bottles in the world.
According to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States, sales of Canadian whisky in the United States increased by 7% between 2011 and 2016, with a 112% increase in the premium premium category.
“The whisky world is beginning to become aware of Canadian whisky and declare it one of the best in the world,” says Davin de Kergommeaux in the second edition of his book, Canadian Whiskey. American bars and restaurants even add Canadian bottles to the list of spirits.
