Whisky & Spice is introducing two exciting new mustards this holiday season.
Cabernet Balsamic Mustard – Elegant and Sophisticated

Premium Ontario Pelee Island Lighthouse Cabernet Franc is paired with 18 year old traditional balsamic vinegar imported from Modena, Italy. Whisky & Spice chose Pelee Island Cabernet Franc for its ripe, fruit flavour and ability to pair well with a variety of meats and cheeses making it an ideal accompaniment with cheese and charcuterie boards.   They were very fortunate to partner with Toronto’s Olive Oil Emporium ( and chose their classic 18 year old traditional balsamic to match with the cabernet franc.   Imported from Modena, Italy this premium quality balsamic vinegar brings rich, complex flavour and contains no thickeners, added sugars or caramels.
Rye Maple Mustard – A Canadian Classic

Canadian mustard seed with  Canadian rye spirit aged in Canadian oak barrels and sweetened with Canadian maple syrup. Oh Canada!
They were fortunate to partner with The Trafalgar Club from Oakville, Ontario to use their small batch Barrel Aged Rye.
This premium small batch rye whisky from award winning Trafalgar Club is matured in small, charred barrels made in Ontario from Ontario oak.  With approximately 20% rye by volume, the mustard is balanced with the sweetness of Ontario maple syrup.  Brown mustard seed from western Canada provides spice and flavour.

Find both these delicious flavours and more at the Whisky & Spice booth, this Sunday!
