About Rum and Cane Spirits from Canada

About Rum  and  Cane Spirits from Canada
Without question, the most famous spirit from Canada is whiskey. Canadian whiskies, often made from rye, are elegant and lightly spicy, and although they may not rank as highly as single malt scotch, there are some examples that are of exceptional quality. Vodkas are becoming more of a factor in Canada, which should come as no surprise, given the quality of the river and lake water used in production. Yet there are many other notable spirits produced in Canada, ranging from bitters to orange liqueur to aged brandies. The spirits industry in Canada is relatively small, but the products are well worth the search.
