Loved the history and tour of offices, basement butsad not able to see distillery at all. Most tours of facility like this you see where alcohol made,,,,I have been to Jim Beam, several bourbon locations in Kentucky and all show us the manufacturing of the product. Advertise of tour should state this

They were happy to take my money for this so called tour but left out most of it! All we saw was 3 old offices and an old bottle room. They said we couldn't see the purple room (which is the highlight of the tour) because a bridal party was taking pics in there and the got priority plus they... More

Sir, Thank you for visiting the Canadian Club Brand Centre - your review states you were here last May. It is true that our wedding parties have access to the CC Speak Easy room (you referred to as the purple room) but in lieu of not seeing that room the staff will take guests into a private archive room, as...

If you like history and stories of mafia (Al Capone ) you should take this tour. You get history of whiskey origin and how I was transported during prohibition times. You also get a sample of best you can taste.

Al Capone held meetings with Hiram Walker in the basement. How can you not want to see this place? This tour isn't as much about the distilling process or their recipes as it is about the history and evolution of the brand. We loved it! The tour guide referred us to a couple of other places in the area too.... More

I'd been wanting to do this tour for years, but didn't know what to expect. I was so happy that I finally did it! The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I like how we were encouraged to touch what we wanted...except for the old ledger books. The building is stunning and learning the history of one of my... More

Didn't expect this attraction to be as interesting as it was. This building was beautiful inside. With Oak wood moldings and panels, Original furniture and even the hand written ledgers kept by Hiram Walker. We were in the room Al Capone purchased whiskey to smuggle into the US. We also had a tasting and learned how Canadian Club was made.
