TORONTO — Forty Creek took home three awards from the 2020 New York International Spirits Competition, including “Canada Master Whiskey Blender of the Year” for Master Blender Bill Ashburn, “Canada Whiskey Distillery of the Year” and a Gold Medal for Forty Creek Barrel Select.

“Forty Creek’s dedication goes far beyond the creation process, extending into the homes of whisky lovers across the country. We strive to craft an experience for our fanbase to savour,” said Ashburn in a prepared statement about his award for “Canada Master Whiskey Blender of the Year”. “To receive not one but three awards at the New York International Spirts Competition speaks to the hard work we distill into every bottle and we’re grateful to receive the recognition.”

Forty Creek’s Barrel Select, their original whisky, received a Gold Medal – adding to the product’s long list of accolades over the last two decades. Along with international and Canadian medals and awards, this whisky – boasting robust flavours of vanilla, honey and cocoa – continues to fulfill fans with its memorable flavour profile.

Forty Creek also received “Canada Whiskey Distillery of the Year”. This accolade adds to a list of international and Canadian Whisky Awards, including three “Whisky of the Year” awards in the last decade and, most recently, “Whisky of the Decade” for Forty Creek Confederation Oak and “Whisky Maker of the Decade” for Forty Creek.
