In the late-1800’s, John Philip Wiser, or J.P. as he was fondly known, set out in Canada at a deliberate and steady pace to build a company that was known for its quality, craftsmanship, and premium products. So began a long tradition of Canadian whisky making. J.P. Wiser’s ambition was simple – to produce the highest quality whisky that pleased the eye, nose, and tongue. Using only superior ingredients, he aged his whisky to distinction in premium white oak barrels – and over 150 years later, J.P. Wiser’s whisky is still made using traditional recipes to ensure that the final product lives up to the standards set out by J.P. Wiser many generations ago. A perfectionist in all his undertaking, J.P. Wiser used only the finest ingredients and demanded the highest standards for his signature Canadian whisky. Continually improving and advancing the whisky-making method, he aimed to refine the process and set new standards. Many products of that day were glaringly impure and under-aged, but J.P. Wiser’s whiskies soon became known for being blended with exacting care and aged to perfection in white oak barrels.

As well as producing J.P. Wiser’s, Hiram Walker also produces some of the most awarded Canadian Whiskies in the world such as Lot 40 100% Rye, Pike Creek 10 Year Old and Gooderham and Worts Four Grain Blend.

Tours Friday at 1pm, 3pm & 5pm, and Saturdays & Sundays at 12pm, 2pm & 4pm for $15. You must be legal drinking age and have your ID with you.

  • This is a great tour for the money! $15 for a one hour tour of the working distillery and almost an hour taste testing of 4 of their whiskeys! The 2 tour guides were very knowledgeable, funny and entertaining. If you go during the hot months of summer...it’s HOT! You do have to walk up 60 steps...easy but be aware and they ask you to wear closed toe shoes. I loved this tour! Go early so you can enjoy the view of the river and sit at the bar.
  • Family were over from England and we took them for it to her of Hiram Walker & Sons Distillery. The tour lasted just over an hour and took you through much of the Distillery operation. The young lady that was doing the tour what's a full-time employee and was well-versed in all the operations but take place to create their whiskey. It was very informative and interesting. When the Torah was finished we ended up and their Reception Center for some whiskey tasting. I would encourage you not to wait until you have visitors to go see The Distillery. See it today for yourself. Then when company arrives you will be well-versed yourself. :-)
