About the Whisky:
Forty Creek Unity is a truly special addition to our lineup of annual limited releases. As a celebration of our Forty Creek fans, the final blend was hand-picked by five of our followers from across Canada who were hosted at our distillery in Grimsby.
The ingredients chosen to make Forty Creek Unity are as unique as the fans who helped pick the final whisky. Our Master Blender first selected a blend of Canadian whiskies which were further aged with the addition of high mocha wood staves. This was then combined with an exceptional 10 year old corn whisky which helps give it that smooth Forty Creek trademark taste. To layer additional sweetness and complexity to the blend, he lastly added a small amount of very rare Portuguese-style Starboard wine that had been aged 15 years in previously used Forty Creek whisky barrels.
The resulting whisky is signature Forty Creek. Smooth, complex and certain to satisfy our fans across Canada and around the world.

"Master blender Bill Ashburn invited five Forty Creek fans to help him create this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s special release. It is one of the tastiest new whiskies in recent years from Forty Creek. Rich, luscious caramels, grape jelly, sultanas, sweet red wine, and hot rye spices, with a round and velvety mouthfeel. Forty CreekÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s annual releases are collectorsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ favorites in Canada and the U.S. Some editions sell in the thousands of dollars, and Unity seems poised to become one of these classics."
