The famous Canadian hockey player, long retired and already in the wine world with his own brand has now moved into the world of Canadian whisky.

"Niagara-on-the-Lake – Wayne Gretzky Estates Winery & Distillery today announced the launch of No. 99 ‘Red Cask’ Canadian Whisky made with rye, malted rye and corn and finished in red wine casks from the Gretzky winery.

The new distillery, opening in Spring 2017, is headed by Master Distiller Joshua Beach who holds a MSc in Brewing and Distilling from Heriot Watt in Scotland with experience in Europe and Vancouver.

“I have always enjoyed a good whisky and was thrilled to work with Master Distiller Joshua Beach to create a new fabulous Canadian whisky,” said Wayne Gretzky. “What’s truly exciting is we are using oak wine barrels from our red wines to finish the whisky for a really smooth and refined taste.

It will be available soon through the LCBO in 750ml bottles for $34.95 each, and also at liquor stores in Alberta and Manitoba".

I know Wayne Gretzky was a big name in ice hockey, it is not a big sport here in Scotland but he is one of the few players that I have heard of. The whisky does sound interesting, hopefully it is a good one but I doubt we will see it here.

Certainly worth a try at that price.
