Found North Whisky

At Found North we strive to unlock the potential of Canadian distillate by creating unique, complex whiskies keyed to the American whiskey drinker’s palate and bottled with the Bourbon drinker’s mindset -- undiluted, non-chill filtered and without additives.

We believe modern American whiskeys fall within too narrow a flavor profile. There is so much opportunity for more -- and that search for more is what led us North. We began our journey in pursuit of mature rye aged in a cold climate, seeking out spice, fruit, and earth without over-oaked bitterness. Instead of finding ready-to-bottle single barrels, we discovered a vast array of casks, teeming with potential. This presented us with the rare opportunity to create distinct and differentiated whiskies while establishing our identity as blenders.

We spent a year matching and integrating flavors, shaping our first two batches. Both received top honors, Double Gold, at The 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. And so we continue our exploration, pursuing new flavors that can only be Found North.

"Not only is this my favorite “Canadian” whisky of the year, it might be my favorite whisky of the year—period... For those of you longing to see Canadian whiskey blended and bottled with a Kentucky mindset, you’ve found your brand."

- Dave Driscoll, Mission Spirits

"Here at last was evidence of that rare new frontier we were longing for. The two brothers behind the brand, Nick and Zach Taylor, are both longtime industry folks, spirit nerds, lovers of big bold flavors, and weren’t afraid of putting in the work. In their quest for that next great American whiskey, they found themselves in Canada."

"Found North Batch 001 is an exceptional rye whisky to say the least. It’s got an incredibly thick viscous body that’s packed full of layers. 9/10
