Sortilege, meaning ”magic spell,’’; is a unique blend of Canadian rye whisky and pure maple syrup. Created from the richness and authenticity of the Quebec countryside, this remarkably fine liqueur follows a traditional recipe that strikes the perfect balance between the heady strength of Canadian whisky and the rich, golden flavor of all-natural maple syrup. The maple syrup in Sortilege is classified as Canada #1 - Extra Clear, the highest grade of maple syrup recognized as a natural, high-quality authentic product containing no colorings or additives. This syrup is expertly blended with real Canadian whiskey that has been distilled to the highest standards using only 100% rye grain and aged in hand-selected white oak barrels for a minimum of three years resulting in an exceptionally smooth finish. The idea of combining whisky and maple syrup has been around in Canada for hundreds of years, though the producers of Sortilege have refined the process to achieve perfect harmony between the two ingredients..
