Kiefer Sutherland Launches  Red Bank Canadian Whisky in the UK

Kiefer Sutherland together with three friends and colleagues (Gary Briggs, Shawn Hiscott and Rob Steele ) founded Red Bank Premium Blended Canadian Whisky. Distilled on the rocky shores of Nova Scotia.

Michel Marcil – Master Blender using Canadian wheat as his main ingredient together with Canadian rye and corn.

Kiefer Sutherland said. 

“The thing that I found so fascinating about Red Bank and this journey developing the whisky is the incredible pride Canadians take in themselves and their country.

I was born in England and I know the British people feel the same, but I grew up in Canada and one of the things that I’ve admired about Canada is its great diversity not just in its landscapes and culture, but its people as well.

I am proud to have Red Bank represent all that is authentically Canadian and I am absolutely thrilled to bring it to the UK”

Let’s open the bottle and have a taste.

Red Bank – Hand Crafted Premium Blended Canadian Whisky, 40% Alc/vol 70 cl

Colour…Citron gold leaf.

Nose…Elegant, lively and balanced, lightly toasted oak stave, an open bag of broken biscuits, mild spices creeping in and a touch of caramel.

Taste…Velvety smooth and soft, caramelised nuts, new sawn oak, sweetened breakfast cereal, toffee tart, clover honey and the mild spices are still lingering, a puff of white pepper.

Finish…Medium finish, wood and  cereal linger the longest, sophistication in a glass.

This blend is a little pricey at a few pounds under £50.00. It is a well-balanced dram. Served neat or with a teardrop of water is great, it is also great in an Old Fashioned cocktail.

This bottle is best shared with family and good friends. This is a bottle to consider for a fathers day gift.
