HOW LONG IS HIRAM WALKER'S SHELF LIFE?

Once bottled, Hiram Walker products keep their character and flavor for a minimum of two years-provided the seal remains intact and the liquid is not subjected to extreme temperatures or prolonged bright light. While the ingredients should not spoil, the profile of the product may change with age and/or be affected by storage temperatures (the color may fade and/or the intensity of the flavors decrease).

Once a bottle of Hiram Walker is opened, it will usually last for several months without being affected if stored properly (not in extreme temperatures or bright light). Our more light-sensitive products are packaged in brown bottles to offer additional protection.

If you are in possession of a Hiram Walker product that is more than two years old or that has been open for more than six months, we encourage you to replace it before enjoying.

WHERE CAN I FIND A PARTICULAR HIRAM WALKER PRODUCT?

Please visit the Where to Buy section of our website. Note that by law, Hiram Walker does not sell directly to local retailers but rather through distributors, who call on bars, restaurants, liquor and grocery stores. While we do our best to provide you with accurate information, we strongly encourage you to call a retailer to check on the availability of a particular product. If your local retailer does not stock a certain item, you may request that the retailer order it from a distributor.

IS THERE GLUTEN IN HIRAM WALKER PRODUCTS?

Gluten is a class of proteins found in certain cereal grains, particularly wheat, rye, barley and oats. They are chemically volatile and are not distilled into the spirit product. During distillation, any gluten present would remain as part of the spent grains and not in the distillate or finished product.

In other words, by the time the product has undergone distillation, maturation, blending and shipment, there is no gluten present in Hiram Walker products. As gluten intolerance is a medical issue, we recommend consulting a physician before consuming any beverage alcohol products.

ARE THERE SUGARS IN HIRAM WALKER PRODUTS?

Hiram Walker Schnapps, Liqueurs, Brandies, and Triple Sec all have added sugars, which contribute to taste. The body will also convert calories/carbohydrates from any alcohol into sugar. Although we are not in a position to provide medical advice, we strongly urge that anyone with diabetic or other related health problems consult a physician before consuming alcoholic beverages.

HOW MUCH ARE MY VINTAGE BOTTLES WORTH?

Hiram Walker cannot assign a value to old or vintage bottles, as this is not our area of expertise. You may wish to contact an antique dealer or appraiser in your area, or search online auction sites such as Ebay.com.

WHAT IS CANADIAN CLUB WHISKEY?

As Hiram Walker (the man) began his foray into distilled spirits, he started by producing a whiskey that became known as Canadian Club. Walker later branched out into cordials, and the two divisions have since been separated. If you are looking for information about Canadian Club, please visit www.canadianclubwhisky.com

HOW CAN I REQUEST PRODUCT DONATIONS?

Because of legal restrictions, Hiram Walker can donate product only to organizations with 501c3 charity status. If you have an organization that meets this criteria and would like to request product donation, please send an email to sponsorships@pernod-ricard-usa.com.
