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

First I want to start by saying this place is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. I'm getting married in 2017 and I am definitely thinking about this as a venue. BUT I was there for a tour this week and I was so dissapointed. My best friend is visiting from Australia and I thought it would be the perfect time to show 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.

This is a quick tour more about the history the building and business. They don't talk much about the whisky or how it's made. The whisky tasting at the end is classy and well done.

Recently visited and toured around the CC Brand Centre. The tour guide we had really accentuated the entire experience. He had a lot of interesting facts but kept it fun, interesting and moving along well. He was able to answer questions easily while keeping everyone on track. The building is beautiful and there is a lot to see and do.... More

We went a lot of places over our nine day vacation, but this stop in Windsor/Walkerville was one of our favorite things of all. We originally thought we would be touring the Canadian Club distillery, but It was actually a tour of the original Canadian Club offices which MAY sound boring, but it was far from it. Our favorite part... More

We decided to go there for my grandma's birthday as she has enjoyed Canadian Club most of her life. But the rest of us were pretty surprised with all of the history about the cities of Windsor and Detroit that was offered on the tour as well. It was very entertaining and something I would certainly recommend.

This is a must do tour. We were pleased with our guide that was very knowledgeable and kind. Visited stunning rooms with amazing architecture, craftsmanship and artifacts. All rooms have an amazing story, rich in history. Wish we could have seen more rooms. Reasonable price for the tour.
