Canadian Club was first brewed and bottled by my great great uncle Hiram in detroit , He was dating a nasty old trollop from Canada and was forced to stay completly pissed on the wonderful whiskey he used to brew in his shed . However one day the old tarts two brothers showed up at Hirams shed , these incredibly boring men started to tell hiram a story about their milk cow daisy and how one of her horns had a slight dip downwards ! Hirim imeadialty knocked back half a bottle of his whiskey hoping to numb the pain ... no such luck ! The Canadians then started off on a story about their pig , Uncle Hiram could take no more ! he grabed two bottles of his fine elixer and clubed the canadians over their heads dropping them like stones ( this later gave him a name for his brew - canadian club !)unfortunatly his nasty oll missus saw all this go down and promplty called the local coppers , Hiram new he was in all sorts of bother now , grabbing his last case of magic elixer he jumped the first ship and ended up in a small country on the other side of the world called New Zealand ! He married a lady who incidently had invented a great tonic she called soda ...

Walkerville, Ontario, was founded in 1856 by Hiram Walker. Walker based his settlement on the Garden City Movement. The GCM was established in the UK and supported cities that were planned, self-contained communities surrounded by greenbelts, containing carefully balanced areas of residences, industry and agriculture. Walkerville has been renowned for many years as a car manufacturing mecca. 31-year-old Gordon McGregor, watching the growth of the American automobile industry from his Walkerville Wagon Works factory in January 1904, said to his brothers, "there are men in Detroit who say that every farmer will soon be using an automobile. I don't see why we cannot build them here in the wagon factory." McGregor contacted Henry Ford and by the end of 1904 Walkerville Wagon Works had become the first Canadian Company to manufacture Ford vehicles. Today, the Walkerville area, having combined with the city of Windsor in 1935, brands itself: "The Automotive Capital of Canada" and is noted for its large automotive industry including Ford, General Motors and Chrysler.

Hiram Walker was an American grocer and distiller, and the founder of the famous distillery in Windsor, Ontario, Canada directly across from Detroit, Michigan. Walker founded the distillery in 1858 in what was then WALKERVILLE, ONTARIO. He purchased land across the river, just east of what was Windsor, Ontario, and established a distillery on the banks of the Detroit River. Walker began selling his whiskey as Hiram Walker's Club Whiskey. It became very popular and American distillers became angry, and forced the US Government to pass a law requiring that all foreign whiskeys state their country of origin on the label. This move backfired; Hiram Walker's Canadian Club Whiskey became more popular.

Hiram Walker founded his distillery in 1858 in Detroit. He first learned how to distill cider vinegar in his grocery store in the 1830s before moving onto whisky and producing his first barrels in 1854. However, with prohibition looming and Michigan already becoming "dry", Walker decided to move his distillery across the Detroit River to Windsor, Ontario. From here, he was able to export his whisky, continue to perfect the distillation process and start to develop Walkerville, a community that Hiram financed and sourced most of his employees from. Walker's whisky was particularly popular in the late 19th century gentlemen's clubs of the U.S. and Canada; hence it became known as "Club Whisky." Walker originally positioned his Club Whisky as a premium whisky, pitching it not only on its smoothness and purity but also the length of the aging process (Walker's whisky was aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 5 years). This was revolutionary at the time, as all of the U.S. bourbons and whiskies were aged for less than a year. Club Whisky became very popular, and American distillers petitioned for the inclusion of the word "Canada" on the bottle to distinguish it from their competing American whiskies, thinking it would halt the popularity of Hiram's. This backfired, only making Club whisky more exclusive. Hiram saw this and changed the label again in 1889 adding the word "Canadian" to the top of the label, distinguishing Walker's recipe for his whisky from the other processes of the time (Scotch, Irish and U.S.). Hiram blended corn and barley in addition to rye before putting it in the barrels for maturation, a recipe that is now renowned throughout the world as that of Canadian whisky. In 1890 the word "Canadian " was moved down from the top of the label and incorporated into the name of the whisky. This, however, was only temporary, as three years later the logo changed again, transforming from a bold font into the scripted typeface that we see worldwide today It wasn't until the American government introduced the Bottled in bond law in 1894 that the people of America really started drinking Canadian Club. It was thanks to the passing of this law that all whiskies had to carry their maturation time. This re-affirmed the fact that aging whisky was not just a fad and that the older the whisky (generally speaking) the better the quality. Hiram Walker handed down his distillery to his sons upon his death in 1899. Over the years they have branched out into other businesses. At one point they employed almost the entire population of Walkerville, where they built a police station, fire station, gave them running water and street lights. In 1890 the Canadian government acknowledged Walkerville as an official town, and in 1935 it became part of Windsor. During the years of Prohibition one of the distillery's most important clients was Al Capone, who smuggled in thousands of gallons of the drink - Canadian Club - through the liquor pipeline from Windsor to Detroit. Canadian Club whiskey has received the Royal Warrants of Queen Victoria, King Edward VII, King George V, King George VI, and Queen Elizabeth II. Hiram Walker & Sons was the only North American distiller to have been granted a Royal Warrant.[1]. This was later withdrawn. The Hiram Walker & Sons distillery remains in Windsor on the banks of the Detroit River, where it continues to produce fine spirits.
