Yesterday Brown-Forman announced the release of Collingwood Whisky, a new Canadian spirit that will hit store shelves this month. Collingwood will be the only maplewood mellowed Canadian whiskey available on the market.
The whiskey is triple distilled and then matured in white oak barrels. It’s finished by mellowing the blended whiskey with toasted Maplewood, which adds sweetness to the spirit while reducing natural astringency.
Collingwood, which sports an interesting flask-shaped design, will be initially available in Texas, Florida, Kentucky and Louisiana, hitting more markets throughout 2011. Each bottle clocks in at 80 proof, and a 750ml bottle will retail for around $27.
