Canadian Whisky Videos
Weekends can be a bit slow here at canadianwhisky.org so for a change of pace I've posted some links to Canadian whisky videos on the web. While the amusing Wiser's "slow clap" television commercials and Canadian Club bear painting video use humour to promote Canadian whisky, Phillips Distilling's manic 1967 introduction to Canadian whisky seems more like a Super-8 home movie that a naughty cousin slipped onto YouTube without telling the rest of the family.An informative, short tour of the Crown Royal warehouses at the Gimli, Manitoba distillery with its 1.6 million barrels of sleeping whisky puts into perspective the 20,000 barrels John Hall talks about in six educational looks at the history, production and processes he uses at the Kittling Ridge Distillery where he makes his his Forty Creek whiskies. Still Waters Distillery has about a dozen barrels of single malt spirit sleeping just meters from their custom-made copper pot still. For now they rely on their single malt vodka for cash-flow. Here we tour their craft distillery in the Toronto suburb of Concord, Ontario.The Black Velvet girl may be all glitz but the leisure-suited dude in a Movember spoof of The Wiserhood most certainly is not. And who can watch whisky videos without thinking of the ever-eccentric ralfy, currently going viral in whisky Blogistan, and seen here in one of his earliest reviews (his second actually). A re-creation of the 1969 orientation slide show Corby Distilleries used for visitors, provides a rare glimpse into the workings of this now-flattened piece of Canadian whisky history. The mysteries of bottling are revealed in a tour of the bottling line at Black Velvet distillery in Lethbridge. Notice how the empty bottles arrive already packed in the same Black Velvet cartons that will be used to ship the finished whisky to market. There are links to reviews of these whiskies below each video.
