In Canadian Spirits, bestselling author Stephen Beaumont and National Magazine Award-winning author Christine Sismondo crisscross the country in search of the best whiskies, gins, vodkas, rums, and other assorted - and sometimes oddball-spirits produced by Canada's large-and small-scale distillers. Along the way, they trace Canada's fascinating distilling history, from its humble and quasi-legal beginnings to the dynamic and internationally recognized industry it is today. The result is a comprehensive roadmap to the best places in Canada to explore craft spirits.
Featuring vibrant photos, information on and reviews of over 450 unique spirits, Canadian Spirits tells the stories behind more than 170 diverse spirits producers, from the massive Hiram-Walker distillery in Windsor, Ontario, to the pioneering Glenora Inn & Distillery in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and Vancouver's tiny Odd Society Spirits.
Whether you are a seasoned spirits expert, a curious newcomer, or an adventurous traveller, Canadian Spirits is sure to quench your thirst.
