Canadian ClubCanadian Club’s success and longevity can be attributed not only to the style associated with it, but also the quality of the product inside the bottle.
Begin as Grain Merchant
Hiram Walker, a successful grain merchant, founded what would become Canadian Club in 1858. Their first distillery was established in Walkerville, Ontario because of the exceptional quality of the local grains there. In those early days, if you wanted whisky, you took your own jug or bottle to the local store and filled it from a generic barrel. They didn’t care for that idea.
