Turner Valley, Alberta – November 13, 2018 – Alberta’s first craft distillery, Eau Claire, is proud to announce its second, limited edition release of Single Malt Whisky. A farm to glass whisky that encapsulates the best of Alberta – blue skies, mountain fresh water, malted barley and entrepreneurial spirit.
On the heels of Eau Claire’s international recognition for premium spirits, Eau Claire’s Single Malt Whisky has been highly anticipated. The 2017 release of 1,000 bottles sold out exclusively to its loyal Cask Club newsletter members. The 2018 Cask Club presale sold out in 24 hours – testament to Albertan’s pride and excitement for a quality craft whisky they can call their own.
On November 15th, 2018 at 11:00 am Eau Claire Single Malt will be formally released throughout Alberta at a few select retailers.
“The feedback on this whisky has been phenomenal – our team is bursting with pride to share this teaser batch of our future whisky production,” said Eau Claire Distillery President and Founder, David Farran.
Eau Claire Distillery expects to do annual whisky releases of Single Malt, increasing as our dunnage warehouse stocks mature.
“This subtly complex whisky has flavours of sweet red fruit with underlying vanilla and caramel. A long oaky finish and raisin undertones, this whisky is a testament to traditional craft – it is remarkably mature for its age, but young and innovative in its outlook,” described Eau Claire Distillery’s Master Distiller, Caitlin Quinn.
Eau Claire Distillery products have received awards from around the globe and are recognized as best-in class for quality and taste.
