Canadian Whisky

Canadian Whisky is a product obtained from the assembling of a Whisky produced mainly with rye combined with mild distillates of other cereals. Usually the percentage of used rye does not exceed 30%. For this reason it is often used in cocktails to replace the American "Rye Whiskey" (with at least 51% rye), more difficult to find. The character of Canadian Whisky lies in the quality of used grain (rye, wheat, corn, barley), in the purity of water and in the use of a particular distillation that provides continuous stills or a "passing" in pot stills called "doublers". The aging in new and old barrels varies between the legal minimum of three years and the maximum of twelve for the "deluxe" quality.
