Let’s say this right off the bat – this is no ordinary Canadian whisky. Alberta Rye Whisky Dark Batch is a blended whisky comprised of 91% rye whisky, 8% Old Grand Dad bourbon and 1% sherry. Sounds interesting, right? How much influence, other than a dark red color, can such a small addition of sherry assert in this whisky? Alberta Distillers create Alberta Premium Canadian Blended Whisky. According to Chuck Cowdery, Alberta Distiller’s rye whisky is the source of WhistlePig Rye Whisky.
