Single Malt Whisky Batch 003

by Eau Claire Distillery

Made in Turner Valley



Eau Claire Distillery became Alberta’s first craft distiller to produce a single malt whisky when this spirit launched in 2017. Made using Alberta-grown malted barley, it is placed in new European oak barrels and ex-bourbon barrels and stored for at least three years — a requirement to be called whisky in Canada — giving the spirit a complex flavour with hints of vanilla and caramel and an oaky finish.
