In 1924, the Bronfman family built their first distillery in the Montreal suburb of Lasalle. In 1928 they purchased the Seagram’s distillery located in Waterloo, Ontario and became one of the largest distilling empires. It was the Seagram’s name, and not Bronfman, the one that became popular and remains today firmly associated with Canada. In 1934, the Bronfman brothers purchased the Maryland Distillers Inc. of Relay, Maryland which opened the door for more USA business. In 1964 Bronfman and McLauchlan developed an all-Canadian whisky version called Lord Calvert Canadian. After being distilled, aged and blended in Lasalle, the whisky was shipped in bulk to Seagram’s plants in the United States where it was bottled and sold by ‘Calvert Distillers.’ Due to strict labeling laws, we can all be confident that Lord Calvert Canadian is, and always was the real thing – real Canadian whisky, all of it aged for a minimum of three years. In 1991, Seagram’s sold the Lord Calvert Canadian brand to Jim Beam, as a result, Calvert Canadian is now a Beam Global brand.
Lord Calvert released this Ducks Unlimited series in 1977 with the Canadian Goose being the first. In 1978 the Wood Duck was released, followed by the Canvasback Duck in 1979 and the Eider Duck in 1980.
