Review: North of 7 Single Barrel Canadian Whisky (Bourbon Style)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 23, 2018

Greg Lipin and Jody Miall are both avid rock climbers who regularly travel to Kentucky on climbing trips. It was there that the two friends developed a passion for ‘brown spirits’ which led them to opening their own Micro-distillery ( North of 7 Distillery) in Ottawa, Ontario. They currently produce several styles of Canadian Whisky, their Leatherback Dark Rum (57 % abv.) Triple Beam Gin and Illuminati Vodka.

The subject of this review is the North of 7 Single Barrel Canadian Whisky from Barrel Number 3, which is produced in a boubon style  Corn, wheat, rye and barley grains. The whisky was aged in for about 3 and a half years in 53 gallon oak barrels from Independent Stave Company. This is a true locally produced whisky as all of the grain used by the distillery is sourced locally from the  Moulin St.-Georges Mill (corn from the Alexandria area) and the Against the Grain farm in Winchester.

Here is a link to my full review:

However, once we bring the whisky into the realm of mixology, there is a place for both camps to find enjoyment …”

Please enjoy my review which includes two recipe suggestions, the Ottawa Continuum, and the Ottawa Old Fashioned.
