|Forty Creek Copper Pot - NEW!
Forty Creek Copper Pot Whisky is made in the same award winning style as Barrel Select, by renowned whisky maker John Hall.
Using a selection of rye, corn and barley grains, Hall distills each grain separately in a traditional copper pot still to create a spirit that is bold and complex. The difference is that Forty Creek Copper Pot is amped up in flavour delivering a deeper and richer taste profile.
Patient extra ageing takes place in white oak barrels, and careful selection of whisky stocks. Copper Pot is bottled at 43% alc./vol. to complement the depth of flavours in this bold whisky.
Deep copper (amber) colour. Bold aromas of toffee, nuts and spice. Dried stone fruits follow through on a smooth, supple entry. Full bodied with rich brown spice notes and hints of marmalade. Finishes with a long, sensual fade. A whisky worthy savouring.

“Rich toffee and searing chili peppers over bursting rye spices, rye grain and bitter orange. Big, rich and hearty”. ★★★★

“Two of this year’s most noteworthy releases come from Forty Creek… the new Forty Creek offerings are phenomenal. Copper Pot is a really balanced and refined whisky that you would be proud to take home to meet your mother.”
Christine Sismondo, The Grid Hoarding Alert
“John Hall opened my eyes to a new avenue of whisky that I refused to believe existed. I felt this glowing and content feeling after finishing it. Very satisfying, full bodied and spicy…yet another great example of how John dares to think outside the Canadian whisky box to create something that is exciting, different and surprising.”

“Copper Pot is true to its “amped up” billing.”
Stephen Beaumont – Beer & Spirits writer
"This is one of the very best whiskies I have tasted this year. It has everything I want in a whisky, a rush of spice that lingers throughout the taste experience, wonderful caramel and chocolate flavours balanced perfectly with a mildly bitter, but soft nuttiness, and a staggering complexity which is off the charts. Forty Creek has taken their Barrel Select whisky to a new level with the Copper Pot Reserve!" 90 Points

"I didn't really get Canadian whisky until
I discovered Forty Creek. Maker John Hall
isn't just a great Canadian whisky maker,
he's one of the world's very best period."
Dominic Roskrow - Wizards of Whisky
"Delicious and drinkable!"
Danish Whisky Blog, Steffen MacDeffe
"Very rich and smooth, with pronounced fig and orange peel flavours and those expected flashes of spice such as cloves and cardamom. An excellent addition to the lineup."
Dan Kislenko, Wine & Spirit Writer, Hamilton Spectator
".a well-adjusted (how Canadian) blend of rye, corn and barley with hints of orange, cinnamon, ginger and maple. A good after-meal sipper."
