TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Alberta Distillers Ltd, makers of the No. 1 selling 100% rye whisky in the world1, Alberta® Premium, is proud to announce the return of its highly coveted Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye.

Crafted and distilled in Calgary, Alberta, Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye is made from 100% Canadian Prairie rye grains grown by local farmers and distilled with nutrient-dense, glacier fed spring water from the surrounding Rocky Mountains.

This liquid is a product of that craftsmanship and our ongoing commitment to delivering world-class 100% rye whisky.”
