NOT REALLY Craft. JUST REALLY GOOD.

In 1968, Canadian Mist was born on the shores of Georgian Bay, Ontario, home to some of the freshest water in North America. Using top-quality grain, mellowed white oak barrels, and that pristine water, we created an easygoing classic—not “craft whisky,” but whisky made well to be enjoyed by all.

HOW Mist GETS MADE.

Canadian Mist may not be “small-batch” or “artisanal,” but we’re all about quality—and we have a lot to be proud of. Here’s how we do it.

GRAIN

We select the best grains available—Canadian, of course. Barley malt from Alberta. Ontario rye. All of our corn is grown within 100 miles of the distillery. The grains are ground, mixed with water, then mashed to extract those precious starches.

FERMENTATION

Enzymes in the ground grain convert the starches to sugar, then this converted mash is off to the fermenter. Yeast is added, and the magic of fermentation begins. Sugar is converted to alcohol along with some trace flavor compounds known as congeners.

DISTILLATION

The fermented grain mash is now called a “beer.” But we’re making whisky here. We distill that brew to remove the alcohol. Exposed to steam, the whisky is vaporized and sent to a condenser. The condensed vapor is now known as “high wine.” But don’t worry—it’s actually a flavorful whisky.

EXTRACTIVE DISTILLATION

The new whisky is mingled with water and live steam through two columns, which separate out the congeners—but not all the congeners. These specific congeners are our friends, as they’re what give Canadian Mist its delicious aroma and flavor. The base whisky is then reduced in proof using pure demineralized water from the Georgian Bay.

COOPERAGE & WAREHOUSING

Placed into white oak barrels once used for heavier whiskies—barrels that have mellowed out over time—the whisky is left to mature, not “age.” Age is only a number. It doesn’t determine quality, because some whiskies mature more quickly. Our climate-controlled barrelhouses ensure constant maturing—and a smooth, delicious taste.

BLENDING AND BOTTLING

The matured whisky is removed from the barrel at the peak of perfection. Blending the flavoring whiskies, selected for their mildness, with the base whisky is an art in itself, creating a distinctive harmony of flavor and aroma. At last, the whisky is bottled proudly as Canadian Mist.
