Forty Creek Whisky and Bench Brewing Release Taproom Whisky

GRIMSBY, ONForty Creek Whisky has announced the release of a new limited edition whisky created in partnership with Bench Brewing.

Taproom (40% abv):

Through Taproom, excellence in craft beer and mastery of craft whisky come together in search of the equilibrium between liquid and oak barrels and beer and whisky. The unique collaborative aging process involved Bench Brewing aging beer in Canadian Oak barrels that previously housed Forty Creek Confederation Oak Whisky, then returned to the Distillery to be used in a secondary aging of the whisky blend. The result: a whisky that delivers an outstanding flavour profile with spice, hops and an appealing bitterness paired with a citrus and mint aroma. Without using the 9.09% rule to add beer to the whisky, the beer notes come purely from the aging process and transfer through the oak barrels.

Forty Creek Taproom Whisky is available now at LCBO locations throughout Ontario, and for delivery via the Forty Creek online store.
