Whisky Wisemen heads to the Hiram Walker and Sons Distillery
On October 4th 2017 the Whisky Wisemen Society travelled to the JP Wisers Distillery to learn, welcome, and support the launch of the new Hiram Walker and Sons Distillery.
Grouped together with fellow Influencers, media, as well as food & beverage; our journey through the Distillery highlighted the history of the JP Wisers brand as well as the intimacy and care that is put into building their products. Brought together on J.P. Wiser's birthday, our day included meeting the team behind the brand as well as a private tour of the public tours opening this fall.
With a focus on the opening of the new brand experience centre; Hiram Walker and Sons Distillery has created a space for visitors to come and enjoy a glass of one of Canada's original whiskies, overlooking the Detroit River. For the first time ever Hiram Walker and Sons will give the general public an opportunity to take part in the grain to glass experience of the brand.
As you will learn on your tour, Hiram Walker and Sons Distillery is home to many whiskies, gins, vodka, and more. Included in their whisky portfolio are multiple award-winning brands such as Lot 40 100% Rye, Pike Creek 10 Year Old and Gooderham and Worts Four Grain Blend.
The Whisky Wisemen headed over to the distillery taking our CEO and Calgary Chapter President. Their thoughts and comments included "how intimate and people driven the distillery was as well as the process of making whisky" said Lesley Brown CEO. "When taking the time to truly see the mastery in the production of the product, along side the dedication and importance of each contributor, we gained and a new and much deeper understanding of JP Wisers whisky.
Tours are scheduled to begin on Nov 10, 2017. They will be available on Fridays at 12 pm and 3 pm for $15. You must be legal drinking age and have your ID with you.
