The Forager by Forty Creek is being introduced as a category-defying innovation and the world's first botanical Canadian whisky. Inspired by the natural elements of Canada's wilderness, the botanical-infused sprit is described as light and fresh yet complex, and enjoyable as a full-flavored substitute to gin.
The product is made with Canadian whisky that's aged initially for three years, plus hand-picked Canadian botanicals like juniper berries, spruce tips, mugwort and sweet fern, which are added before the additional aging process takes place. The Forager is said to have the flavors of herbal tea and a peppery finish, plus an aroma of fresh-cut pine and candied citrus. Forty Creek recommends appreciating The Forager over ice with tonic and a slice of lemon.
