Canadian Club Brand Centre, Windsor

4.4
One of the country's most venerated distilleries, Canadian Club Brand Centre has operated in this location since 1858. Take a guided tour for insight into the distilling process, a history lesson on the building's ornate architecture, and, of course, a sample of premium whiskeys. Expert guides also offer an interesting historical background on the distillery's effects on neighboring prohibition-hit Detroit. Try the 100-percent rye for something special. Canadian Club Brand Centre is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Windsor Edition.

  • We had such a great tour of the old Hiram Walker house. He was a very interesting man and so inovative. It's too bad the tours and tastings are no longer available. What a wonderful part of our histor...  more »
  • We stopped by the brand center, and we were told by the guard that the center is now venue for wedding. The edifice is outstanding from the outside. Sad that the interior is closed to the general publ...  more »

  • WARNING...Do not go unless you have tickets. We drove from various Detroit suburbs to take the early 11 AM tour on Saturday March 25th. We waited in the cold for the building to open with about 45 others. At the time the doors opened and about 20 were admitted a female employee stuck a sign on the wall that said the tour was full. Also that all the tours for the balance of weekend were full. Some people had purchased tickets in advance. They offered tickets for next Friday (the very last day tours would be given.) We had enough Canadian hospitality for the year, the staff employee was less than pleasant. Took our money back to Detroit and went to the Outdoor Adventure Center--it was a bargain and very well done.
  • Great historical and architectural tour of the main office building, including a basement speakeasy, lavish decor and tastings after the tour. The bad news is that the tour permanently ends in March 2017. Hopefully the corporate decision-makers change their minds.
  • An interesting tour through a beautiful heritage building, followed by a whiskey tasting. A great way for a few friends to spend an afternoon. Great selection of items in the gift shop too.
  • Great place for a tour and some historical perspective on Hiram Walker's presence in Windsor. The tastings is the highlight of the tour. My out of town guests had a good time!
  • Didn't even know this was here. Definitely worth the tour.
