Gibson’s Finest Sterling
Gibson’s // Canada
In the 1850s, a man by the name of John Gibson purchased 40 acres of land and built his distillery by the Monongahela River in Pennsylvania. Business was successful until Prohibition, when they suffered the same fate of many other distilleries at the time. Some decades later, the brand was purchased by a Canadian company and reintroduced to the market. Today, Gibson's is a well known whisky brand in Canada. Gibson’s Finest Sterling is made by blending together grain (corn-based) whisky with rye and malted barley. It's bottled without an age statement.
