I have participated in the annual whiskey week end for several years. I have promoted the new whiskeys to my family and friends as well as the barrel select which is the best whiskey made. Meeting John Hall, whiskey maker, over the years, was a great experience. I have brought groups of friends and family for tours of the distillery.... More

We were introduced to Forty Creek by our Very good friends Mike & Suzanne Elines from Cookstown, we are from the United States, Freehold NJ. We travel to see Mike & Suzanne quite often and they always have FortyCreek for my husband. We have since started searching out our favorite brand of Whiskey in our hometown of NJ, our second...

Amazing trip. Will definately go back. Great flavour, beautiful location, enjoyed a picnic lunch with my 10 year old on the grounds. Learned a lot. Highly recommend leaving the highway for this one.

Having been fans of Forty Creek Whisky for years we decided to visit the distillery. We arrived just in time for the 4 pm tour. First you are briefed on the history of the distillery and introduced to all of their different products. Then you begin the tour through the barrel rooms to the large copper stills all the time...

I am on a distillery/wine tour and we began with the Forty Creek Distillery. The tour was filled with interesting information and the store was awesome! Thanks for a great start to our tour for the day!

Why we have not stopped here before is beyond me! If you are a whiskey drinker, this is a "must stop" stop! We enjoyed a very informative tour and great tastings. We didn't know that Forty Creek was part of such a huge family of spirits. Glad to know that they are doing so well on a global market as... More

My husband and I love whiskey. We have never been big fans of wine so when we heard of 40 Creeks tour, we knew we had to go. So interesting to hear the history and I have so much more appreciation for the task time and effort put in to make this beautiful elixir. The tasting at the end was... More

A super stop along the QEW. I learn more about whisky and how it's made everytime. Generous three tasting pours, I take home something new most times. Do plan for the 2:00 plant tour.

I purchased various bottles of alcohol over the past six months (including Christmas, birthdays and special occasions), which were not available in the LCBO. They were very unique and well received. Staff at Forty Creek go out of their way to assist you. They have many other gift like options for under $10. Would highly recommend

The Forty Creek BBQ sauce is absolutely the best with its rich and tangy flavor. It's amazing on steaks, burgers and chicken or ribs. You can't help but lick your fingers for this great taste. Their Irish Creme is a must on the rocks or your coffee..again the flavor is great. I buy the BBQ by the case and give... More
