Based out of Montérégie (just north of the New York/Quebec border), la Maison Sivo is a part of the growing micro-distillery movement sweeping through Canada, which saw at least seven new distilleries in 2015. The house produces a number of spirits, with the crown jewel being its L'Essence du Single Malt Whisky, made from Quebec-grown malted barley and aged around a year in 225-liter Cornish oak barrels. Bottled without filtration at 42% ABV. As it isn't aged for at least 3 years, the Canadian requirement for whisky, it can't technically be called "whisky" there.
