Canadian whisky can consist of many different ingredients, but mostly rye is used as the base. Unlike bourbon, most Canadian whiskies are "blends".
With the invention of the "Canadian Club" Hiram Walker laid the foundation for the whisky classic par excellence. He got his worldwide known name by the exclusive bar in Gentlemen´s Clubs in the USA. During Prohibition, the majority of whiskies drunk in the USA came from Canada. The typical Canadian whisky style is smooth, light and refreshing. The flagship of Canadian whiskies is the "Canadian Club Premium Extra Aged", which has been produced according to the original recipe since 1858.
A curiosity is that for the Canadian whisky additives of sherry, fruit wine or fruit juices are permitted up to a maximum of 2% of the total volume.
