We are so excited about the results from this year’s competition.
Currently we are focusing on our four signature spirits and a line of complimenting bitters.
WHAT RYE MEANS TO US
To be called Canadian Rye Whisky means something. To be called 100% Rye Whisky made in Canada means something more. It means pride. It means at least three full years of aging in oak casks. It means made from nothing but pure rye grain – no barley, no wheat, and no corn. It means distilled one batch at a time in pot stills – not continuously in columns. It means no flavourings and no colourings were ever added. It means what we put on the label is what is inside the bottle. It means liquid truth.
Years and years and years of planning, investment, hard work, sweat, tears, wins, luck and good people. That’s what went into making this bottle.
This whisky is more than a richly unique tasting rye, it’s the liquid history of the people and places involved in producing an obsessively honest, purist’s dream of a Canadian rye whisky from 100% Ontario ingredients. We are proud to introduce to the world our truly grain-to-the-glass Dillon’s Rye Whisky.

Throughout the year we are constantly pulling samples from each cask and when one is deemed to be the best, that cask is flipped over and bottled as is. Single cask, at cask strength. It is our truest expression of local grain, oak, people and place that we could possibly make.
