J.P. Wiser’s Double Still Rye Whisky

J.P. Wiser’s Double Still Rye

J.P. Wiser’s Double Still Rye is a Canadian whisky from the house of J.P. Wiser’s, one of the country’s oldest and most popular whisky brands. It is the creation of Don Livermore, the Master Blender at J.P. Wiser’s since 2012.

This is a no-age-statement Canadian whisky, and has been released very recently by J.P. Wiser’s. Owing to the expression being new to the market, the company chose to have a controlled release of the product. It is currently only available in Canada, and nowhere else in the world.

History of J.P. Wiser’s Rye Whisky

The J.P. Wiser’s brand was created by John Philip Wiser, who not only lent his name to the distillery and company, but also played an important role towards revolutionizing the whisky industry in Canada.

In the year 1857, Wiser gained employment at the Charles Payne Distillery owned by his uncle, Charles Egert, and his business partner, Amos Averell. Over a period of time, Wiser developed a deeper insight into the business, and in an ambitious move, he decided to purchase the distillery himself.

Five years after he had begun running the distillery for his uncle, Wiser bought out Egert and Averell, becoming the sole owner. From here on, Wiser began working towards enhancing the quality of his whisky. He opted for a lengthy maturation period, improved filtration and meticulous blending technique to ensure superior quality.

This worked wonders for the Wiser’s brand name in the market, as it became increasingly popular around the world. As the business was flourishing, Wiser lost his son to an untimely death in 1895 at the age of 36, but his business continued to thrive.

After Wiser passed away in 1911, the ownership of the distillery passed to Albert Whitney as there was no next of kin. Subsequently, the Wiser’s brand underwent some turmoil over the next few decades until it came to be owned by Hiram Walker & Sons.

Making Process of J.P. Wiser’s Double Still Rye

This expression is the handiwork of Don Livermore, the Master Blender at J.P. Wiser’s who took charge at the distillery in 2012. Livermore developed the recipe for this expression by blending two Rye whiskies, distilled in two different manners.

One part of the Rye whisky is distilled traditionally, using a copper pot still, whereas the other is distilled using a copper column still. The spirit is married, and aged for an unspecified period of time. The resulting blend is the J.P. Wiser’s Double Still Rye, bottled at a slightly higher proof than regular whiskies.

Alcohol Percentage in J.P. Wiser’s Double Still Rye

J.P. Wiser’s Double Still Rye carries an alcohol strength of 43.4% ABV, slightly higher than the standard permissible limit for whiskies in Canada.
