It’s made with pristine filtered water from Georgian Bay and grains sourced from Ontario farms, aged in handmade oak barrels and then rested with toasted maplewood staves. Collingwood Whisky is an award-winning artisanal spirit that’s at the heart of the Whiskylicious festival happening right now until February 10 in Collingwood. There’s so much to choose from. Let chefs teach you how to make (and then eat) such delights as scallops with burnt orange whisky buerre blanc sauce and whisky maple crème brulee. Reserve your seat for a three or four-course whisky-themed meal at one of Collingwood’s popular restaurants. Live music abounds. The festival wraps up on Saturday with an art auction fundraising fete supporting the restoration of the historic Nottawasaga lighthouse in Collingwood Harbour. It’s all just a short drive from Georgian Sands!
