On the road in Michigan this week, but had the chance to sneak across the Detroit River to Windsor, Ontario…where Canadian Club has been produced for 151 years at the Hiram Walker & Sons Distillery in the Walkerville neighborhood of Windsor. Hiram Walker’s headquarters building is now the Canadian Club Heritage Center, and this classic building patterned on a 16th century Italian palace will appeal to whisky lovers, art lovers, and architecture fans alike. CC’s Tish Harcus tells us about the building’s history over a dram or two. Plenty of new releases in the news, including a 50-year-old Glenfiddich, the debut of Suntory’s Hibiki blended whisky in the U.S., and a dozen single-cask bottlings!
