It is estimated that during prohibition, 75 per cent of all booze in the States came in over the Detroit River.

Through the Mexico Export Company, big-time bootleggers like ‘King Canada’ sent small boats laden with Canadian Club to places like ‘Barbados’ and ‘Mexico’ where booze was legal. Of course, Mexico and Barbados had plenty of booze, so the boats wouldn’t actually travel more than a mile across the river to Detroit. No one on the Canadian side seemed to raise an eyebrow when a small boat seemed to make the 4,000 kilometre round trip to the Caribbean three times a day!

Canadian whisky was so popular that it came to replace rye whiskey as the primary ingredient in a Manhattan, even as far from the yoke of prohibition as London.

A collection of whiskey-based cocktails.
