Canadian Club 8 Year Old Blended Canadian Whisky 700ml
Often considered the more polished older sibling of Canadian Club Original 1858, the Canadian Club 8 Year Old Whisky has a higher rye and barley ratio than the original. Distilled and matured in char-treated American white oak barrels for eight years, makes the Candian Club 8 year old have a richer, smoother flavour.
A man by the name of Hiram Walker, a successful grain merchant, was the founder of what is now known world wide as Canadian Club located in Ontario, Canada.
Believing their whisky was different, they branded their barrels with their name so it was easily recognisable to all who were beginning to notice them.
Canadians took pride in their very own whisky before the Americans also came to the party, considering it to be for the gentry who would visit exclusive gentlemen clubs, fast becoming known as the ‘Club Whisky’.
It wasn’t long before the whisky gained so much popularity, thus taking the shine off local American made bourbon, that the American government bought in the rule that at all spirits must be named with their country of origin, hence the genesis of Canadian Club Whisky.
The Canadian Club 8 Year Old Whisky is one of the many stand outs in the Canadian Club offering.
