Craft your Collingwood!

Another holiday weekend is upon us! While the brown spirits category enjoys a remarkable resurgence in North America, there are plenty of cocktail companions to reach for as you plan your 4th of July festivities. But before you get started with star-spangled celebrations, your friends from the Great White North would like to raise a glass to all North American Whiskies as we celebrate Canada Day this Friday, July 1.

Made at Canada’s longest continuously owned and operated distillery in the town of Collingwood, Ontario, Collingwood Blended Canadian Whisky is a relatively new player in the super-premium Canadian whisky category – which shows double digit growth. With a unique toasted maplewood finish, Collingwood is unmistakably a product of the vigorous Canadian spirit and landscape.

Let the celebrations begin early and kick off the weekend with one of these classics (with a Canadian twist). Here’s to all North American whiskies. Cheers!

Collingwood’s light and crisp flavor profile is ideal for sipping neat or on the rocks. For cocktails, Collingwood pairs best with classic lighter cocktails, including:
