Hiram Walker, a successful grain merchant, founded what would become Canadian Club in 1858. The first distillery was established in Walkerville, Ontario because of the exceptional quality of the local grains there. In those early days, you took your own jug or bottle to the local store and filled it from a generic barrel. Canadians soon took a liking to the whisky that started to be sold in gentlemen's clubs of the era, the whisky came to be known by the name ''Club Whisky'' It wasnt long before Club Whisky began to cultivate popularity around the world. Eventually, its popularity began to affect the sale of American Bourbon in the United States. This forced the U.S Government to require all Canadian distillers to put the country of origin on their label....and so, Club Whisky became Canadian Club and a legacy was launched. =
