Lot No. 40 Takes Top Honours at Canadian Whisky Awards


VICTORIA, B.C. — After a blind-tasting competition, a jury of 10 whisky experts named Corby Distillers’ small-batch Lot No. 40 the Canadian Whisky of the Year during the sixth-annual Canadian Whisky Awards held last week during the Victoria Whisky Festival in Victoria, B.C.

Other winners include Canadian Club 100-Per-Cent Rye, Gooderham & Worts, Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye, Crown Royal Hand Selected Barrel and Masterson’s 10-Year-Old Rye. “Canada’s whisky makers have responded to skyrocketing interest in Canadian whisky with a wealth of new high-end releases,” says Davin de Kergommeaux, chairman of the judges. “For example, for the first time ever, a major legacy brand, Crown Royal, has bottled single barrel Canadian whisky at high proof.”
