During prohibition, Canadian Club was the first to package their whisky in curved bottles. This curve made it easier to discreetly tuck away a bottle on your person. They chalked up another first for Canadian Whisky when in 2014 they released Canadian Club Chairman’s Select 100% Rye. It was the first 100% rye grain whisky to be released by one of the top three selling whisky brands in Canada. This rye is distilled at Alberta Distillers then bottled in Walkerville, Ontario. Note: This product is sold in the U.S. as Canadian Club 100% Rye and was made available in June 2016. Chairman's Select 100% Rye was a Canadian release.

Tasting Notes

"This is a familiar rye with textbook floral notes on the nose. Popping toasted grains swirl with oaky vanilla leading your mouth on a journey of rye spiciness and creamy caramel. Orange citrus mixed with baking spices, such as clove and hot cinnamon, hang around a long time like they’ve been charged by the Energizer Bunny. This whisky is a prodigy for cocktails but just as delicious as a sipper. "
