Whisky Weekend is a celebration of all things Canadian and this year is a special event as it will be launching Victory, a limited-release that commemorates the 205th anniversary of the Engagement at the Forty, a battle between American forces and combination of local militants, indigenous peoples and the British Navy during the War of 1812. The battle took place near where today stands the Forty Creek Distillery and was critical in preventing the further advancement of American troops.

With Victory, Forty Creek continues the tradition of experimentation in aging with unique types of wood. Master Blender, Bill Ashburn selected only his best Canadian Whisky to further age with the addition of vanilla wood staves. The resulting whisky was then artfully blended, resulting in a product that is signature Forty Creek.

The Forty Creek Victory 2019 limited release will be available to the public for the first time at the distillery during Whisky Weekend (September 21st and September 22nd).
