History of whiskey in Canada
Similar to neighboring America, Canada also made first attempts at firing in the 17th century. Settlers brought knowledge and thirst from their homeland and tried to distill rye. For a long time, Canadian whiskey production was overshadowed by American. The first small wave of success experienced the Canadian whiskey from Hiram Walker, who moved from America to Canada about 150 years ago. Across from the city of Detroit in Ontario, he built his first own distillery. By printing his name on the bottles and barrels he produced, his whiskeys were given a name and a face. It was well received by consumers, especially in clubs and restaurants. That's why Walker added a 'Club' to the name of his whiskeys - which has remained unchanged to this day. After 20 years he brought his recipe for success back to his home country America and should have no less success there. Canadian colleagues did not want to grant him this triumph and managed to ensure that he was only allowed to sell the whiskey with the addition of 'Canadian'. This is how the 'Canadian Club' was born.
The heyday of Canadian whiskey begins in 1919 with the prohibition in America. The Canadian product became a popular contraband. Around this time, over 200 distilleries were established in Canada. Another big name in this context is Samuel Bronfman: he bought a distillery called "Seagram" in 1920. He expanded his product range and bought shares in American and Scottish whiskey distilleries. Thus, by the end of Prohibition in 1933, it achieved an optimal position with an extraordinary and diverse inventory. Hiram Walker and Samuel Bronfman have become notable figures in the whiskey industry. Parts of the Seagram empire now belong to Coca-Cola, Diageo and Pernod Ricard. Canadian Club grew up as a brand at Beam Inc., which also includes Jim Beam, Knob Creek and Laphroaig.
Production of Canadian whiskey
At the beginning of whiskey production in Canada, master brewers also added rye to their mash, which was so appealing to their compatriots that they wanted “rye” from then on. The whiskey is still known today in Canada under the name "Rye" or "Canadian Rye" and may also be sold under this name, although it does not have to contain rye. It is now often made on the basis of cheaper corn. Even fruit wine or even fruit juice can be used in small quantities for the production of Canadian whiskey. In Canada, the acid branding process is used to produce whiskey. This procedure produces a high-percentage, but not yet very tasty, distillate. The master blender has the task of producing a good Canadian whiskey from this distillate. Sometimes they consist of more than 20 different types. Canadian whiskey appears almost exclusively as a 'blend', actually as a blend of whiskey. The different brandies based on corn mash are married to a few Ryes brandies. This is how the fine mixture of the sweetness of the corn, the flavor of the rye and the aroma of the oak barrels is created; simply unmistakable. Canadian law only stipulates that Canadian whiskey must be made in Canada. In barrels with a maximum capacity of 700 liters, whiskey matures for at least three years before it is bottled with a minimum alcohol content of 40%. Regarding the raw materials, there are no stricter regulations: the types of grain such as rye, barley and maize can be used in any quantity. Even the use of flavored additives such as caramel is allowed. In terms of legislation, distilling in Canada is much freer than in America. In terms of taste, the Canadian whiskey impresses with its spicy, mild aroma. It is more like scotch than American whiskey.
