By allowing nature to do most of the work, Pike Creek is a whisky crafted by the elements. Exposed to the sub-zero winters and hot summers of Ontario, the barrels contract and expand releasing the rich tannins and vanilla notes hidden deep inside the oak staves. Understanding that the maturation of whisky is an art, as much as a science, wood is the most essential element in the production of Pike Creek. With the surrounding environment playing such a pivotal role in its production, Pike Creek is redefining the category of Canadian whisky as we know it. Master Blender Dr. Don Livermore ensures that the high-quality standards of Pike Creek are achieved from grain to glass.
Pike Creek is double distilled in column stills, and aged in a non-climate controlled warehouse with no electricity. Once in the barrel, Pike Creek whisky is subject to the dramatic northern climate and extreme seasonal swings in temperature. An extraordinarily full and robust whisky with fragrant nose of dried fruits and underlying notes of spice and toffee 42% ABV

Inspired by a recipe that is seven generations old, Lot 40 is 100% rye whisky expertly distilled in small batches using only the finest locally sourced ingredients and then aged in virgin oak barrels. By distilling in a single copper pot still, the result is a complex rye whisky that starts off with notes of earth and wood, then finishes with a silky vanilla oak finish. Lot 40 Canadian rye is named for the original Lot 40, a patch of land on which local politician and whisky enthusiast Joshua Booth built and operated his first pot still. Today, Lot 40 is the personal obsession of Master Blender Don Livermore, who ensures it’s made the way rye whisky should be—one batch at a time. 43% ABV
