J.P. Wiser's Dissertation won the Best Canadian Blended Whisky. This whisky was developed exclusively for Ontario and under 2,000 cases were produced, making this a rare and rewarding find!

Corby Spirit and Wine also received three more honours during the ceremony in London, awarded to: J.P. Wiser's Toffee Whisky, Gooderham and Worts Little Trinity 17 Year Old, and Lot 40.

"We believe that Canadian whisky represents Canada well: like our country, we believe that diversity is our strength. I am proud to create a wide range of beautifully blended whiskies with unique flavours so that everyone can find one to love," says Master Blender, Dr. Don Livermore. "I am very pleased that our brands of whisky are recognized on the world stage."

In 2017, J.P. Wiser's Dissertation won Best Canadian Blended Limited Release. In 2016, Gooderham and Worts won Best Canadian Blended Whisky.

The World Whiskies Awards are the culmination of a vigorous process that includes three blind judging rounds conducted by an international panel of whisky and spirit experts. Corby whiskies collectively took home the following awards:

J.P. Wiser's Dissertation – World's Best Canadian Blended

  • Inspired by Master Blender, Dr. Don Livermore's Ph.D., this rye forward whisky is the result of his studies to draw out the richest notes of vanilla, toffee and spice through the quality of oak barrels


J.P. Wiser's Toffee Whisky – Best Canadian Flavoured Whisky

  • This whisky is crafted to enhance the flavours that naturally come from oak barrel ageing to deliver a rich, smooth toffee and butterscotch taste that is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks. With limited bottles produced, this whisky is as hard to find as it is delicious!


Gooderham and Worts Little Trinity 17 Years Old – Best Canadian Blended Limited Release

  • This 3-grain whisky celebrates the story of Little Trinity Church, a church William Gooderham established in 1842 for his mill and distillery employees who couldn't afford the high pew fees in the area. Bottles of this whisky are now very scarce, but the original 4-grain Gooderham and Worts is available at select locations


Lot 40 – Best Canadian Rye

  • The ultimate expression of Canadian Rye whisky, Lot 40 is 100% rye grain, made the old-fashioned way – distilled in traditional copper pot stills one batch at a time
