If I were a Scotch drinker this would be cool. Even better if every dram were consumed while listening to Traffic's version of John Barleycorn. Hmm... could set a new trend. Music and drink pairings.

There is a good list of whiskey there too.


I like that site! The Lot 40 is definitely gong on my shopping list. Thank you.

Does anyone know of an on-line store that might ship to the states?

Liquor sales and distribution are pretty tightly regulated in Canada. Technically, it isn't even supposed to cross provincial borders except to & from licensed resellers. I doubt you will find a legitimate shipper of Canadian liquor for private sale to the US.

Recently a bill went before senate to allow wine to be shipped to individuals across provincial borders. I don't recall hearing if the bill passed yet. I recall it looked promissing. Unfortunately, the back bencher who submitted the bill only worded it for wine. I guess that is all he drinks?

The topic of whiskey came up at work today. Not my normal coworkers. I'm basically at a week-long set of meetings this week. One guy said he used to drink a different bottle of whiskey with his friends every Monday night. After they got up to over $100 bottles, they decided maybe it was too costly to drink all in one night. He says that now he takes cheaper whiskey and puts it through a Brita filter like 10 times, and it ends up tasting like the more expensive ones. The others involved in the conversation sounded interested in trying it.

Better yet, would be bacon infused whiskey. Yum Yum

I had a bacon infused martini once. It was surprisingly good. I'm not even a fan of martinis but I just had to try it.

This reminds me of another note on our liquor regulations. More and more bars now are challenging the law by infusing liquor to produce thier own flavors. If the letter of the law in most provinces was followed, this is technically a no-no because the law states that you can not add anything to liquor in it's bottle and that a drink must be mixed directly from the original bottles.

This was a good law at one time to prevent bottles from being 'watered down' but hopefully all the recent pressure to modify the regulation will pass so that barkeeps who want to be a bit more artistic with thier drinks to set themselves apart from the competition can do so.
