  1. Producer: Alberta Distillers Limited

At WineOnline.ca we take great pride in providing some of the top distilled liquors from among the six liquor types produced - Brandy, Gin, Rum, Tequila, Vodka and Whiskey.

Cognac - a type of brandy - is one of our favourite liquor types. The primary grape varietals used in making Cognac are Trebbiano, Folle blanche and Colombard. Did you know that even though France produces nearly 12 million cases of Cognac, the French prefer to drink Scotch and export 97% of the Cognac they produce.

People often ask about the difference between Vodka and Gin. While vodka is made from distillation of potatoes, rye or wheat, gin is made by distillation of malt or grain and then mixed with the flavor of juniper berries. Gin is the key ingredient of many Prohibition-era and classic cocktails, and thanks to a gin revival, is the base spirit for many modern cocktails.

Tequila is a popular liquor type most often consumed in Mexico and the U.S. While Tequila is the essential ingredient in margaritas, there are lots of other cocktail recipes that include Tequila.

So depending on the day - or the time of day - whether you drink Vodka, Brandy, Gin, Rum, Tequila or Whiskey, you will end up a winner. Enjoy!!

Alberta distillery was founded in 1946 by two entrepreneurs and an experienced distiller from British Columbia. Eventually, the distillery was bought by National Distillers in 1964 to ensure consistent supply for their well-established Windsor Supreme brand. In 1987 the distillery was bought out by Beam, which is now owned by Suntory.

The distillery is often described as the best rye distillery in the world, and is the largest purchaser of rye grain in Western Canada. In fact, the distillery produces more than 3 times as much rye as the rest of North America combined - that is quite astonishing! It produces fabulous stock of famous 100% rye whisky in different forms depending on how it is distilled and whether it is aged in bourbon casks, new oak, or refill barrels. The distillery typically releases is softer mixing whiskies like Alberta Premium or Alberta Springs. However, at times you see some of their more strongly crafted whisky - though usually through a different brand that has sourced their whisky like Canadian Club, Masterson's, Whistlepig, or Jefferson's. Occasionally, however, their stocks are opened and you see absolutely terrific rye bottlings - like their 25 and 30 year old bottlings. Though rye is what they are known for, they distill more than just rye, also working with corn, wheat, unmalted barley, and triticale.
