5ᵗʰ Anniversary Whisky Release

Available to order online and instore at 8am on April 1, 2024

On April 1, 2019, Patent 5 Distillery officially opened our doors to the public. To celebrate our anniversary, we have created the first release of our Patent 5 Anniversary Series. The Anniversary Series features the oldest and rarest barrels in our collection. With a focus on cask finishes and higher strength whisky, every Anniversary Series release will be one to remember. Cheers to another year, and cheers to History Distilled.

Our 5th Anniversary edition whisky was aged for three years in new charred white oak and finished in a French oak Pedro Ximenez Sherry cask for nearly two years. This Anniversary release was recently awarded silver medals in both the World Whisky Awards and the Canadian Whisky Awards. Bottled at 52.6% with notes of cherry cola, ripe dates and vanilla this whisky has a sweet, complex nose that leads to a bold, rich and spicy palate, with a lingering finish.

Manitoba’s ONLY Rum. Rum Release #3

Available to order online February 26 or instore purchase March 1, 2024

Our rum is crafted using a unique combination of Crosby’s fancy grade and blackstrap molasses. We distill and ferment the molasses to preserve the character and flavor – a very slow process, worth the wait for a flavorful rum. We age the rum in casks that were used once to age a double-oak bourbon.

This third release of our rum has been aged for just over 2 years.
Double distilled in our custom copper still in traditional Jamaican-style, this release is a full-flavoured, yet smooth rum.
Enjoy it in your favourite tropical cocktail or on ice.

Notes of cola and burnt sugar, in addition to a hint of oak. Serve in your favorite cocktail or enjoy neat or on ice to savor the flavours.
