TORONTO – Forty creek announced the launch of Foxheart, a rum-infused whisky from Master Blender Bill Ashburn. Foxheart infuses the finest Canadian whisky with a hint of premium 12 year old Caribbean rum.
The whisky is a tribute to Ashburn’s decades of leadership at Forty Creek and takes its name from the home of his first championship dog—a wire hair terrier, a breed known for its curiosity, determination, and tenacity.
“I’ve dedicated my life to mastering two passions: blending best in class whisky and breeding best in class dogs. For that reason, Foxheart holds a special place in my heart,” says Bill Ashburn, Forty Creek Master Blender and 2020 Canada Master Whiskey Blender of the Year. “When blending Foxheart, I wanted to utilize the unique, premium liquid that’s already well-loved by Canadians and infuse it with a hint of aged Caribbean rum, leaning into its spice and flavour to further enhance the whisky. I’ve been in pursuit of the perfect heart to the whisky for decades—and in Foxheart, we’ve found just that. I’m extremely proud of this innovative liquid and cannot wait to share it with the world.”
Foxheart retails for $44.95 and is currently available in Ontario. Starting next week, Foxheart will be available in BC, with distribution rolling out across Canada in the coming months.
