Aging Canadian Whisky

The basic definition of "whisky" in many countries other than Canada, including America does not include any specific aging duration requirement. However, Canadian products aged less than three years, or failing to meet the domestic Canadian whisky standards in some other way, cannot be called "Canadian whisky" within Canada and in some other countries, such as America.

Canadian whisky featured prominently in rum-running into America. during Prohibition. Hiram Walker's distillery in Windsor, Ontario, directly across the Detroit River from Detroit, Michigan, easily served bootleggers using small, fast smuggling boats.
