Canada seems to be better than the U.S. at quite a few things these days including politics and hip-hop, but whiskey?

Corby Spirit and Wine Ltd. recently introduced the first annual Northern Border Collection Rare Release, a hand-picked selection from Canada's rarest casks. The range consists of Pike Creek 21 Year Old, 12 Year Old Cask Strength Lot No.40, Gooderham & Worts 'Little Trinity' 17 Year Old Three Grain and J.P. Wiser's 35 Year Old.

The highly-anticipated collection is designed to showcase Canadian whisky and to underline Corby's commitment in driving the reappraisal of Canada's national spirit. Their previous release, the Northern Border Collection (Pike Creek 10 Year Old, Lot 40 100% Rye, Gooderham & Worts Four Grain and JP Wiser's 18 Year Old) has already won numerous awards over the last five years.

To compliment the Northern Border collection, ultra-rare expressions will be released in the fall. "This is an extraordinary line up of Canadian Whisky and should be part of any whisky collection," says Dr. Don Livermore, Master Blender, via a statement.

Ranging in price from $69.95 to $164.95, the limited release will be available in Canadian stores starting in October.
