Product Description

Review

 • "This is an important time for Canadian whisky and this is an important book which isn't just a story of a drink, but a story of Canada itself. It makes you want to get a bottle and a glass, pour yourself a stiff one, sit back and dive in. I'd suggest you do exactly that." --Dave Broom, author of The World Atlas of Whisky
 • "The Canadian whisky industry has done itself no favours in recent years, content to be perceived as capable of only making bland ryes. Davin de Kergommeaux's book isn't just important, it's a game changer, bringing to life an extraordinary and evolving whisky industry. A proud, insightful beauty of a book." --Dominic Roskrow, author of The World's Best Whiskies and 1001 Whiskies to Try Before You Die

This little book may be portable, but make no mistake, it is chock full of fantastic info. Assuming you purchased this book because you have at least an inkling of an interest in Canadian whisky, then you most certainly will not be disappointed. Throughout the book are tasting notes for all the major brands across this great country, to the smaller, regional treasures. The author explains the history of Canadian whisky in great detail as well as describing the various process's that have been employed over the years to make such a uniquely Canadian product. If you have ever appreciated a shot of 10-year old whisky rolling across your tongue, exploding with flavors, then this book will not only enhance that experience for you in the future, but also make you very, very thirsty for the good stuff.

Extremly informative, a different and sometimes surprising look at Canadian history. I've learned that Canadian whisky is unique amoung the world of whiskys, and well worth sampling.
