If you’re a lover of whisky with an appreciation for fine craft, look no further than Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise’s signature whisky “Untamed.” The whisky, created together with Park Distillery in Banff, is 100-per cent Canadian Rye and diluted with Canadian Rocky Mountain glacier water. The finish is described by Nils Schabert, the Chateau’s regional manager of mixology, as “leather and tobacco leaf with a strong lasting choke cherry mulled wine.” It’s a full-bodied experience for your nose and mouth and one that demands to be enjoyed and savoured slowly. If you are looking to pair it with a meal, the recommended choices are steak, a charcuterie spread or paired with dark chocolate.
Untamed, the whisky’s namesake, pays homage to the wilderness surrounding Lake Louise and the Chateau. As the signature whisky is exclusive and only available at the resort, it makes it the perfect excuse for a mountain excursion or getaway.
