CC Blackberry Ginger Ale

For those new to the wonderful world of spirits, whisky can sometimes be quite the intimidating spirit, but with whisky’s like Canadian Club’s Dock No. 57 you can gradually work your way up the whisky ladder. As a blackberry-flavored whisky, Dock No. 57 boasts full-bodied blackberry flavor with the occasional hints of vanilla thrown into the mix.
