Whisky on the rocks

A luxe whisky deserves a sophisticated on-the-rocks treatment. Savour whisky by serving it over spherical ice in an elegant glass. Add a complementary garnish — such as fanned pear or apple slices, citrus peel or spices — that plays up the notes in the whisky.

Forty Creek Foxheart

This new Ontario whisky is infused with premium 12-year-old Caribbean rum to create vanilla, creamy tropical fruit and pear notes with a peppery finish. Enjoy it neat or over ice.

Forty Creek Double Barrel Reserve Whisky

Crafted in Ontario, this fine whisky is first aged in oak, carefully blended, then aged again in Bourbon casks. The result: a smooth, mellow spirit with bold aromas and flavours of sweet fruit, vanilla and spice. 

A fabulous food match

Just as salt and caramel make a delicious combo, briny bivalves served with Canadian whisky works beautifully as a pairing. Alternatively, pair complex Scotch whisky with the salinity of fresh oysters, or even double down on the smoke factor by enjoying a smoky single malt or blend alongside grilled oysters.
