During prohibition, our spirited history tells of a unique network of rum running and bootlegging, or what we Canadians call “exporting”.
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.
All was going according to plan, until a barrel took a spill, and their exporting days were over… Still, Canadian Whisky slowly but surely made its way throughout the continent, by speedboat, cars traveling over frozen rivers and by airplane!
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.”
