Sometimes you just can’t wait three (let alone 10) years for whisky! So, the masterminds behind Great Plains Craft Spirits, Mike Gordon and Victor Mah, took a different approach. They acquired several batches of 17-year-old 100 per cent corn whisky from the old Potter’s distillery in Kelowna and put one of them into 22 freshly emptied vintage Brandy de Jerez casks for 12 months. The result was a winner! It won the Gold Medal Award of Excellence for best new whisky at the 2020 Canadian Whisky Awards. Find this and other Great Plains products at fine local liquor stores.
