Forty Creek Through the ages

Forty Creek has had an important and storied history within the Canadian spirits industry. In this very exclusive tasting event we will celebrate Master Blender Bill Ashburns 35 years working within the walls of our Grimsby facility.
Diving deep into our roots and going back to the early days of Rieder Distillery, Canada’s first craft distillery that focused on Niagara eau de vie’s and early whiskies, then moving through the ages and evolution of Forty Creek as a world class, award winning whisky producer that ushered in the new era of Canadian whisky and launched a Canadian Whisky renaissance!
Hear some amazing stories and sip some pivotal moments in the on-going history of Forty Creek.

Our ALL-TIME Fav 5

Forty Creek has an extensive collection of award winning whiskies. Ever wonder which ones are Master Blender Bill Ashburns favourites?
Our panel has coerced Bill to crack open his personal Forty Creek vault so we could all sample some of our all-time favourites with you... blind!
All you Forty Creek fanatics out there, or for those who are new to the Forty Creek family, lets see how good your taste memory is on some of these all time classics! All will be revealed at the end with some lively discussion on what made these whiskies special. Maybe we will be tasting one of your long gone favourites as well!
