My knowledge of liquor, up until recently, covered wine, beer, cognac, and a few randoms liqueurs. After a trip to Canadian Club’s Brand Centre in Walkerville though, I’ve learned a whole new appreciation for whisky, thanks to lessons on how it’s made, tricks in the art of making whisky cocktails, and history lessons that sound wonderfully dramatic.

After two days of learning about whisky–and drinking some too–I have to say a big thank-you to Canadian Club and their Brand Centre in Walkerville for hosting me for a really interesting and exceptional little adventure. The trip was a history lesson and a connoisseurs field trip rolled up into one, featuring Canadian Club’s whiskys and some great local treats, and I also can’t help but thank Canadian Club’s Global Brand Ambassador Tish Harcus for passing on some of her extensive knowledge about the company and how they make their delicious whisky.
