Jim Murray’s Whisky Of The Year Is Alberta’s 130 Proof Cask Strength Rye

Jan 7, 2021

Category: Vices

There are numerous ways that a distilled spirit can gain acclaim, but two of the most significant and important are recognition at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and a spot in Jim Murray’s fabled Whisky Bible. Well, the Alberta Distillers Limited Premium Cask Strength Rye Whisky topped both.

Yes, you read that right: this Canadian whisky won Double Gold at the SFWSC and was awarded “Whisky of the Year” by Jim Murray himself for 2021. If that’s not enough to sell you on how special this spirit is, perhaps the fact that it boasts a proof of 130 might convince you. For the record, this isn’t a fluke, either. This latest offering comes from a long line of winners from the heavily-underrated Alberta Distillers Limited, which includes those named “Canadian Whisky of the Year” in Jim Murray’s 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 Whisky Bibles. If you can actually track down a bottle of this highly-coveted spirit, it will cost you a mere $65 to take it home.
