SOW S2 EP43 Hiram Walker & Sons: Colossus of Canadian Whisky

SOW S2 EP43 Hiram Walker & Sons: Colossus of Canadian Whisky

This week's guest on Spirits of Whisk(e)y is Dr. Don Livermore, Master Blender at Hiram Walker & Sons Limited. Located in Windsor, Ontario, just across the Detroit River from Motor City, the historic Hiram Walker & Sons Distillery is Canada's oldest—and North America's largest!—and home to a vast range of spirits and brands, including a distinguished quartet of Canadian whiskies: J.P. Wiser's, Lot No. 40, Pike Creek, and Gooderham & Worts. Listen and learn how "Dr. Don," who this year celebrates his silver anniversary at Hiram Walker, parlayed deep agricultural roots and a knack for science into a quarter-century of innovation and dedication to advancing the craft of Canadian whisky. Then delight to Chef Louise Leonard's suggestions for pairing Hiram Walker's rum barrel-finished Pike Creek 10-Year Canadian Whisky with her take on the classic Puerto Rican Mofongo, featuring fried chicken skin, charred pineapple, and pickled habañero onions.
