TORONTO — Forty Creek Barrel Select took home a Gold Medal and the Whisky Value Multi-Market of the Year title at the 11th annual Canadian Whisky Awards in Victoria, B.C.

Launched 21 years ago, Forty Creek Barrel Select offers aromas and flavours of vanilla, honey and cocoa. This year’s Gold Medal joins the brand’s list of accolades it has been recognized for over the last two decades. With international and Canadian medals and awards, including a recent Gold Medal awarded at the 2020 New York International Spirits Competition, this whisky continues to fulfill Canadian whisky lovers’ desire for a quality flavour profile and long smooth finish.

“Forty Creek Barrel Select is especially dear to me as it’s our original Forty Creek Whisky,” said Bill Ashburn, Forty Creek Master Blender and the NYISC 2020 Canada Master Whiskey Blender of the Year recipient, in a prepared statement. “Winning this award at the Canadian Whisky Awards speaks to the consistency, dedication, quality and craftsmanship that goes into the distillation and production of every bottle over the past 21 years and we are honoured to receive this recognition.”
