A few points as to why this is a worthwhile attraction... Beautiful building in a lovely neighborhood of Windsor. The building alone is worth the time, so if you're an architectural buff with minimal interest in whiskey, it's worth the money. Entertaining and well-trained guide - he was well-versed and had a polished presentation from telling us about the building... More

The history of Windsor and Canadian Club was very interesting! The tasters are the end were... difficult. Hahahaha my husband and his friend LOVED them... but I'm not much... More

My husband and I visited Windsor for a half-day trip. The Canadian Club Brand Centre was by far my favorite thing about Windsor! Make sure you take the tour, it is well worth the $10/person (FYI have cash, does not take American debit cards). Visited on a Sunday, tours at Noon and 2pm. Tour lasts a little under 1.5 hours....

At first I was unsure what to expect when I entered, but I soon became pleasantly enthralled with the experience. There is a LOT of history within these buildings. I only wished that the tour would be expanded to actually take you through the actual production areas to actually see what happens. I loved all of the history and the... More

While taking a trip around Windsor with the Rum Runners Tour we stopped at the old Hiram Walkers now known as Canadian Club. It is on Riverside Drive East. We spent an hour and a half there on a guided tour of the amazing interior offices and boardrooms. We were told stories of the past owners and how this company... More

While staying at Caesar's Windsor last month I decided to take a tour of this famous distillery. It's located a stone's throw from the Casino and was well worth it. There is no actual distillery tour but rather a fact-filled visit to their Headquarters, a lovely old mansion right on the Detroit river, The guided tour took a little over... More

The tour of Canadian Club was inexpensive and interesting. On the tour you learn the history of how the brand was born, the family that started it, and the facility. We visited several rooms, including where gangsters used to hang out. We also watched a short movie. At the end we tasted two whiskeys for free. The tour guide was... More

If you want to visit a historical site with plenty of Canadian and U.S. history, this is a place to be sure to visit. Located close to both entries into Windsor from Detroit, this building houses lots of historical items and offers the visitor many opportunities to imagine the colorful history that occurred here during Prohibition. The tour guides are... More

It was a fasinating tour and history lesson about prohibition. The building itself is beautiful. It was once a bank and it still has the vault. We are both fans of Boardwalk Empire and learned a little bit more about the rum runners. The outside of the building is beautiful with a perfect photo opt of downtown Detroit. One of... More
