Canadian Club(R) Releases a Limited Edition 44-Year-Old Whisky,
Canada’s Oldest Whisky
Launch of Canadian Club 44-Year-Old pays homage to the notorious ‘Whisky Sixes’
Canadian Club is pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated Canadian Club 44 Year Old, Canada’s oldest aged whisky and the fourth edition of the iconic Chronicles Series. Paying tribute to its legendary role during Prohibition, Canadian Club has dubbed this limited-edition expression ‘The Whisky Sixes.’
Batched and barrelled in 1977, Canadian Club 44 Year Old displays rich aromas of vanilla, crisp apple and molasses blended with burnt sugar, custard, caramel and chocolate The palate presents complex notes of dried fruit and plum with zesty spices and chocolate, followed by a well-rounded and lingering sweet oak finish. The spirit’s fullness and sweetness are perfectly balanced, showcasing the distillery’s masterful craftsmanship that has been tirelessly honed for more than 160 years.
“After last year’s successful launch, we’re raising the stakes again with Canadian Club 44-Year-Old, the latest addition to the Chronicle Series and the oldest aged Canadian Whisky on the market,” says Tish Harcus, Manager and Brand Ambassador, Canadian Club Whisky. “The difference is not just in length of the time in the barrel, but the quality of our meticulously crafted spirit. Our Whisky Six would certainly give bootleggers a run for their money!”
In homage to the brand’s storied role during Prohibition, Canadian Club 44 Year Old’s moniker is The Whisky Sixes™, a nod to the brand’s bootlegging roots. In the 1920s and early 1930s, Canadian Club was smuggled across the frozen Detroit River into the United States in cars known as the ‘Whisky Sixes,’- a reference to their smaller six-cylinder engines. Due to their lightweight and streamlined build, these notorious cars easily outran the police, evaded law enforcement and ultimately supplied approximately 75 per cent of the US’s liquor during Prohibition. The release of Canadian Club 44-Year-Old raises a glass to those who made it possible for American speakeasies to be stocked with some of Canada’s finest whisky.
