Alberta Premium Cask Strength Canadian Rye

Alberta Premium Cask Strength Canadian Rye


Built in 1946 by rural entrepreneurs Max Bell and Frank McMahon in the outskirts of Calgary, below the Canadian Rockies, Alberta Distillers is the oldest distiller in Western Canada. Since the very beginning, it was all about quality ingredients and their commitment to the best Canadian prairie grains and pristine water sources from the Rocky Mountains hasn't changed until today. The rye grains are sourced from local farmers who still deliver them personally by truck. 

While some of the rye is exported for premium blends around the world, Alberta Distillers is famous for their ability to distill a unique 100% rye whisky in the right way besides also producing award-winning vodkas from Alberta wheat.

For "whisky fans to experience a 100% rye whisky in its purest form: straight from the barrel," Alberta Distillers released a cask strength rye. Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye Whisky is an innovation in the Canadian whisky category with a 100% Canadian prairie rye mash bill and Rocky Mountain water. Matured in American White oak casks and bottled at 65.1-66.1% ABV, this premium rye whisky features a complex nose with sweet and woody and full palate of smooth caramel and vanilla flavors, balanced by notes of baking spice and black currant. Named "World Whisky of the Year" by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2021 and the Best Cask Strength Whisky in 2020, this is a must for all rye connoisseurs and amateurs alike.
