Red Letter is our ode to our founder, John Philip Wiser. Dating back to the early days of his distillery’s founding in 1857, it is said that Red Letter Rye was the whisky that J.P. himself shared with family and friends. Inspired by our founder, we have re-released this whisky as a Distillery Edition – available only to our friends and family who visit us at our distillery in Windsor, Ontario or at our home on the Web.
Finished in new oak barrels as J.P. Wiser would have done all those years ago, this 15-year-old whisky has characteristic notes of green apple, vanilla and toffee along with dried fruit and clove. The new oak finish imparts elements of wood spice and toasted oak, making this a complex yet sippable whisky perfect for sharing special moments with others.
