What makes Canadian Whisky different from others?
Canadian Whisky is different than any other whisky because of its unique flavorful rye that is added into the mix, resulting in a spicier, bolder taste. Rye is now the main ingredient in Canadian Whisky. Canadian Whisky does not have a maximum alcohol content regulation, which means the brewers can make it as high as they want. Canadian Whiskys are made with a mixture of molasses, butterscotch, clove, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Most Canadian Whisky contains less than 51% corn.
