Caldera Distilling Inc.
Handcrafted in the historical shipbuilding community of River John, CALDERA pays tribute to the heritage of craftsmen & explorers of all Nova Scotia.
Our handcrafted blended whisky is a traditional drink made from our season’s homegrown and regional grains. The spiciness of the rye is balanced out on the finish to produce a nice sharp start and a mellow end. Just as we never know what’s going to blow ashore during a hurricane, you get to enjoy the surprise of subtle differences in flavour with each new release
Inside a barn on the distillery property, we found the words “October 18 1939 Storm” handwritten in pencil on one of the old beams. Officially recorded in the history books as Hurricane #5, the storm was so fierce that the townsfolk had to make record of it in this barn—a barn so well built, it still stands today.
Taste: Butterscotch, Rye spice, hints of Vanilla. Creamy easy finish
Nose: Caramel, Honey & Baking spices (cardamom, ginger and cloves).
Appearance: Light caramel or Amber
