TASTING NOTES:

NOSE: Sweetness, with vague initial hints of toffee that build to a crowning crescendo, accented by fluttering fragrances of citrus fruit.

PALATE: Rich, with slightly pulling oak tannins and sweet caramels, long with a tingling spiciness that leans towards ginger, and soon develops equally appealing elements of tart citrus peel.

FINISH: Medium, fading to an almost nutty finale with clean grapefruit pith and hints of pepper along the way.

DISTILLING:

We carefully selected quality whiskies from other Canadian producers and, along with up to 10% of our own spirit, created this blended Canadian Whisky. No chill filtering and no artificial colouring added. 

All spirits are made by hand, in small batches from grain to glass.

DISTILLERY:

Still Waters Distillery - Concord Ontario Canada.

Founders and owners Barry Bernstein and Barry Stein established Ontario's first micro-distillery beginning production in March 2009. True pioneers of the craft distilling movement in the province, Barry and Barry have honed their skills as craftsman to create a range of spirits, with their flagship Stalk & Barrel whiskies leading the way. They are involved in every aspect of running the distillery and personally oversee each and every batch of spirits produced.

More information on all individual barrels and bottled products can be found on the Still Waters Barrels page.
