The Canadian Whisky Awards published a list of whiskies that attained excellence in dram-making about a month ago. Despite being part of the Canadian whiskey awards, these whiskies were not all produced or made on Canadian soil. However, they are all deserving of a spot in the Canadian whiskey awards, so they should be deserving of your drinking sessions as well. While some may be significantly more expensive, they may be a collector addition to your home bar.

The Diageo portfolio includes the Crown Royal Nobel Winter Wheat, which is produced in the Diageo Global Supply distillery in Gimli, Manitoba.
