A bit of history
Hiram Walker is an American entrepreneur and landowner, originally from Boston, Massachusetts, but based in Detroit where he owns a vinegar factory. One day, he decides to cross the Detroit river to settle in the Windsor area in Canadian Ontario where he opens his first distillery in 1858. He is one of the first in Canada to start distilling.
Wishing to improve the living conditions of his employees, Hiram Walker built houses around the distillery. A real small town starts to be born which he names Walkerville. Already concerned about the environment, he founded the Walkerville Farm, which was used to recycle rye leftovers from his whisky factory to feed cows and pigs. Today, Hiram Walker & Sons has diversified into the production of whisky, vodka and rum and is the largest distillery in North America with a production of 180,000 litres of alcohol per day.
