Masterson’s Canadian Rye Whiskey

The whiskeys are distilled in a tiny pot still at Alberta Distillers Limited distillery in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

3 Badge Beverage Corporation named their whiskey range after Canadian-born frontier lawman, William “Bat” Masterson, one of the most famous American Old West personalities. “I wanted to tip our cap to a character from that time,” explains Sebastiani. “Bat Masterson was not only a buffalo hunter, card dealer, U.S. marshal and local lawman, but he retired to New York where he became a prolific sportswriter and newspaperman. Masterson had considerable depth of character, much like our rye whiskey and I’ve always been fascinated by the role that saloons, card games and whiskey played in the gun slingin’ days of the Wild West.”
