Proof66 Notes

Dillon's White Rye whiskey is made not from Niagara grapes but rather from 100% Ontario rye grain... 10% of that grain malted. The white whiskey is un-aged—that is, not rested at all in barrels—so presents clear in the style of American moonshine whiskey. We guess the rye will give the whiskey a robust, spicy character far more robust than the corn grain moonshine whiskeys. 

Dillon's Distillers is a craft distillery located in Ontario, Canada. It was founded by Geoff Dillon, Peter Dillon, and Gary Huggins. They founded the distillery after looking with dismay on what they saw as a Canada marketplace lagging behind in the new, burgeoning craft distillery market. Their stated goal is nothing more or less than "Just to restore yours, and the world’s, respect for Canadian distilling." The catalyst for the distillery came when Geoff Dillon petitioned Gary Huggins for the hand of his daughter... the distillery became part of his worthiness to wed the young Miss Huggins. Their spirits are made from a base of Niagara wine grapes--making the base an eau de vie (the forerunner of brandy) rather than more common grain spirits (vodka) and is a classic French approach to spirits. The herbs for their infusions are grown on site or by local farmers.
