Spicebox was inspired by crafty Canadian entrepreneurs who smuggled contraband cargo across the border in wooden barrels marked “SPICES”. You see, they knew it was the perfect camouflage and that the aromatic spices would infuse the Whisky with delicious flavours, creating something extraordinary.

At the roadhouses, or blind pigs and speakeasies, along the Canadian side of the Detroit River, hiding the Whisky cache was a creative pursuit. To avert the law, these places had watchtowers, were wired, and “With a tip of the stick, the bottles of liquor would slide down a chute.”
