Whether you call it “rye,” “rye whisky,” or “Canadian whisky,” this is an elegant spirit that is the perfect combination of fire and ice.
Canadian whisky is a broad category that encompasses any spirit that meets the requirements of the Canadian Whisky Regulations—namely, they must be made in Canada, contain no flavoring or coloring agents, and be distilled from cereal grains.
It is a popular misconception that all Canadian whisky is light and mellow. While there are strong quality controls in place, there is also a great deal of flexibility in the finer details. It's because of this that Canadian whiskey is able to produce such a wide range of flavors. So if you're ready to branch out, try some Canadian rye.
