Small-batch distillers excel here in Ontario, winning fans and awards for crafting incredible products with distinctively local flavours.
Wolfhead Distillery: Spirited Innovator
Windsor’s Wolfhead Distillery has a much loved stable of innovative products, including Kavi Reserve Coffee Blended Whisky, which they spent two years developing with Jackie Demarco. They craft it with a blend of coffee beans sourced from four Central and South American countries, roast them in small batches, then brew the beans in cold water to extract their bold and mellow flavours. After adding a touch of vanilla and sweetness, the distillers blend the coffee with aged Canadian whiskies made from rye, rye malt, barley malt and corn and barrel-finished for more complexity. The result? A rich, smooth whisky blend with oak, spice and vanilla notes that shine served on ice or in a cocktail.
Maverick Distillery: Local Pioneer
Founded in Oakville in 2009, Maverick Distillery has found success making local products with locally sourced ingredients. Their first offering, Tag No. 5 Vodka sold over one million bottles to become Canada’s top selling craft vodka. Nine years later, Maverick introduced Barnburner Whisky, a classic blend of corn and rye grain whiskies aged three years, then double-aged in virgin Kentucky bourbon barrels for three to six more months. The finished product is a smooth spirit with great character and depth of flavour that won gold at the 2020 Canadian Whisky Awards. Savour its soft, balanced notes of vanilla, caramel, rye, apple and pear on the rocks or in your favourite whisky cocktails.
