The history of Amherstburg and alcohol dates back to the 1800’s with one of Canada’s first distilleries built alongside the Navy Yard Wharf. This tradition continued through the U.S. Prohibition when Rum Runners regularly visited Amherstburg for its infamous Rye produced at the now Seagram’s factory. From Amherst Alto Rye to the one and only Crown Royal, Amherstburg knows a thing or two about alcohol!
