Someone in Canada decided to spice up their whisky by adding a small amount of rye grain to it and a distinctly Canadian whisky style was born. In Canada, rye whisky is aged in a mixture of barrels that have already been used one or more times, as well as in new ones. Re-used barrels bring additional flavors to the whisky that are not detectable in whisky that has been aged in new oak. Though rye was once a standard ingredient in Canadian whiskies, few today contain much of the grain at all. Many are distilled entirely from corn or wheat or both.
Black Velvet Whiskey, first introduced in 1951, uses crystal clear water originating from the Canadian Rockies, and the finest rye and corn. Black Velvet Reserve was started in 1991 and has steadily grown in popularity due to its smooth taste from longer aging. Black Velvet Toasted Caramel Flavored Whiskey delivers a balanced and complex flavor profile that can be consumed straight or as the base for an endless variety of cocktails.
