TORONTO, Sept. 19, 2017 /CNW/ - Corby Spirit and Wine Ltd. is thrilled to introduce the first annual Northern Border Collection Rare Release, a hand-picked selection from Canada's rarest casks. The range consists of Pike Creek 21 Year Old, 12 Year Old Cask Strength Lot No.40, Gooderham & Worts 'Little Trinity' 17 Year Old Three Grain and J.P. Wiser's 35 Year Old. The limited release will be available in Canadian stores starting in October. It is highly possible that this is the finest range of Canadian Whisky ever released.
The highly-anticipated collection is designed to showcase Canadian whisky and to underline Corby's commitment in driving the reappraisal of Canada's national spirit. The Northern Border Collection (Pike Creek 10 Year Old, Lot 40 100% Rye, Gooderham & Worts Four Grain and JP Wiser's 18 Year Old) has already proven it belongs on the world stage by taking home numerous prestigious awards over the last five years and continuing to be Unapologetically Canadian at its heart.
To compliment the Northern Border collection, ultra-rare expressions will be released in the fall. "This is an extraordinary line up of Canadian Whisky and should be part of any whisky collection," says Dr. Don Livermore, Master Blender.
Dr. Don Livermore describes the Northern Border Collection Rare Release selection:
Lot No. 40 Cask Strength is a 12 year old, 100% rye whisky right from the cask. It sits at 55.0% abv, which emphasizes the spicy rye notes and complimenting new white oak. 750ml bottle priced at $69.95.
Gooderham & Worts Little Trinity is a 17 year old whisky which is a blend of three grains – corn, rye, and wheat. A nice sipping whisky where each grain will linger across the palate delivering a pleasant finish. This whisky celebrates the story of Little Trinity Church, a church that William Gooderham established in 1842 for his mill and distillery employees who couldn't afford the high pew fees in the area. 750ml bottle priced at $79.95
Pike Creek 21 Year Old is a unique offering in the Canadian Whisky category where it is finished in a Speyside Malt cask. This rare release demonstrates how whiskies from Scotland and Canada can complement one another to give a smooth and round sipping whisky. 750ml bottle priced at $89.95.
J.P. Wiser's 35 Year Old is one of the oldest Canadian Whiskies ever produced. It represents a traditional blended rye whisky that has experienced the harsh Canadian winters and warm summers over 35 years in our ageing warehouse." 750ml bottle priced at $164.95.
