Close to the former Gooderham & Worts distillery is the Little Trinity Anglican Church. William Gooderham built the church in 1843 so his staff wouldn’t have to pay pew fees elsewhere – a cash grab common at the time. This 17-year-old whisky celebrates Gooderham’s selflessness with a trinity blend of corn, rye and wheat whiskies. Each composed from a variety of distilling skills and barrel types. It’s part of the 2017 Northern Borders Rare Collection. Limited availability in Canada with a very limited allocation in Europe and the US.

Tasting Notes

"Master Blender Dr. Don Livermore must moonlight as a tightrope walker to fill this bottle with so much poise and balance. This dazzling sipper has a touch of malty rye bread, warm rye spices, vanilla, dried fruit and dusty oak that shift to the palate giving the flavors of all food groups. A honeyed nuttiness pins down the rye spices through the finish. A very complex blend that doesn’t require a safety net."
