One of the best kept secrets for hosting special occasions. The historic building and grounds are breathtaking, as is its location on the riverfront. Catered meals and close parking are added bonuses.

We did the distillery tour. It gave us a lot of interesting history on the Canadian Club Rye Whiskey. Only $10 fee for admission. Seemed a little long, but it was quite interesting.

We had a very nice tour of the center. The history of the business and impact on surrounding areas were covered. Our tour guide was wonderful.

The tour is really worth seeing. Our tour guide took us through the history of whiskey through prohibition - learned a bit of american and Canadian history....even if it wasn't a great part in our history for either country.

Very informative tour, detailing the history of Hiram Walker family and their Canadian Club Wiskey. As a long term resident of Windsor, I still learned many things about the history of the family, Walkerville and the impact to the city that I didn't know. Definitely recommend this tour to locals and visitors. Loved the tasting selections at the end of... More

Nestled in Windsor is this magnificent place to visit. Absolutely briming with history and a very passionate group of staff that take you through a tour of the building. A visit here is well worth it and a must see when visiting Windsor.

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
