History

Gooderham & Worts now is a satellite plant of the massive Hiram Walker Resources (net income for its last nine months was $3 million). The oldest and once largest distillery in Canada functions with updated technology and modernized safety features, but otherwise remarkably little has changed. The old steam powerhouse still runs the distillery and provides heat for all the buildings. Spirits still age in barrels and the original wooden pipe brings cooling water from the lake. The dignity of the old plant has drooped a bit in the hierarchy of distilleries; instead of whiskey, it now produces rum and industrial alcohol.

In 1832 Muddy York had a population of 6,100 when two Englishmen, William Gooderham and his brother-in-law James Worts, established a flour mill operation. [...] within seven years whiskey sales reached an astonishing 241,000 litres a year.

[...] the plant is making Maraca Rum only four to six months of the year.
