Caribou Crossing Single Barrel Canadian Whisky was awarded a Gold Medal at the International Spirits Challenge (ISC) 2019. Such an accolade from the ISC is regarded in high esteem and is highly sought after in the drinks industry, due to the stringent nature of the judging process.

Caribou Crossing Single Barrel Canadian Whisky passed through a blind tasting by a world-renowned expert panel of specialist judges to beat strong competition and win the prestigious accolade of Gold. The quality of Caribou Crossing’s craftsmanship and liquid is reflected in this result.

Caribou Crossing is the world’s first single barrel Canadian whisky. It was
launched in 2006 as part of Sazerac’s dedication and passion to revive the premium Canadian whisky category, and it is hand selected by world renowned Master Blender, Drew Mayville.

Here it deserves a mention that at International Spirits Challenge (ISC), for the Tasting Awards, a highly controlled operation is held over 15 days involving intense blind tastings by panels of more than 50 respected and experienced industry professionals.  Samples are delivered to the judging area in flights of numbered tasting glasses to ensure the accuracy of the blind tasting.  Each judge assesses products according to their age, region and variety which is then determined by the entrant and verified by the Chairman.
