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.To visit J.P.
