"We've always believed that our whisky is some of the finest in the world," says Patrick O'Driscoll, President and CEO of Corby Spirit and Wine. "I'm proud to see it extending beyond borders and being enjoyed by consumers worldwide. Through innovation and creativity, we've developed bold and flavourful small-batches that are helping drive the renaissance of Canadian whisky. Recognition from our international peers motivates us to continue experimenting with new flavours and cutting edge processes that elevate the whiskies coming out of Canada."
With a dedicated team gathering consumer insights, and support from sister production facility Hiram Walker & Sons in the form of significant technology upgrades, Corby is well-positioned to turn trends into products, and is poised to support continued growth and innovation for some of Canada's most popular spirits brands. Corby's latest whiskies – industry favourites Gooderham & Worts, J.P. Wiser's Hopped and Lot No. 40 – are a result of these investments, and have picked up 10 industry awards collectively this year.
"If innovation is driving the industry, Canada is leading the world," says Dr. Don Livermore, Master Blender. "Canadian whiskies are known for quality and innovation, and have become part of traditions and celebrations worldwide. At Corby, we pride ourselves not only on our heritage and age-old traditions like grain-to-glass craftsmanship, but also on our ability to be flexible and innovative in the face of change. This is a true testament to who we are today, and where we can go in the future."
