Proof66 Notes

Canadian Club Chairman's Select 100% Rye Whisky is, as the label so clearly announces, a whisky made from a base of 100% rye grain. This separates it from the great majority of rye whisky on the market that is softened with corn, barley, wheat, or other grains to a greater or lesser extent. While the bottling is done at their plant in Ontraio, several reports suggest the actual distilling is done by Alberta Distillers.

Canadian Club is a brand of Canadian whisky using a blend of grains... and one has gotta love their new tag line, "Damn right your dad drank it." More recently, their 2014 marketing campaign suggested their whisky was "like a snowball in the face from a sexy person."

Hiram Walker founded Canadian club in 1858. Interestingly, it was originally produced in Detroit but, with prohibition looming, the distillery was relocated to Ontario. Over time, it has become the largest distillery in North America (located in Ontario, Canada) and a true grain-to-glass distillery on a large scale. There's a nice write-up at the Windsor Star about their efforts to source grain as locally as possible.
