To be called Canadian Rye Whisky means something. To be called 100% Rye Whisky made in Canada means something more. It means pride. It means at least three full years of aging in oak casks. It means made from nothing but pure rye grain – no barley, no wheat, and no corn. It means distilled one batch at a time in pot stills – not continuously in columns. It means no flavourings and no colourings were ever added. It means what we put on the label is what is inside the bottle. It means liquid truth.
This craft rye represents the long road to fulfilling a dream of crafting an exceptional 100% Rye. It's also an exciting project for Dillon's as we explore all that Canada can do in the field of distilling; from the farmers, coopers, malters and distillers, this rye is their expression.
