Named for a distinct piece of ironwork used on Bluenose II, forged by the blacksmith who worked in the building we inhabit now, Heart Iron Whisky is a step in a new direction for us. Fermented with two different strains of malted barley, one Canadian and a peated version from the UK, Heart Iron Whisky has spent three years in a pair of 200 Litre French oak barrels and is now a rich golden colour that simply glows. We opted to refrain from chill filtering, to keep the flavours from being diminished. Rich baking spices on the nose and essence of rich banana bread on the tongue make for a delicious taste experience. Try it neat with just a touch of water to expand the flavour.
The very first bottling sold out very quickly. And almost immediately was awarded a Gold Medal standing at the Canadian Artisan Spirits Awards. Our whisky will return to our shelves on International Whisky Day, March 27, 2021.
