Van Gogh Imports Introduces Tap 357 Canadian Maple Rye Whisky

Van Gogh Imports Introduces Tap 357 Canadian Maple Rye Whisky

Van Gogh Imports today announced TAP 357, a new premium maple-flavored Canadian rye whisky set to hit shelves in February. Upon its release, TAP 357 will be the only Canadian maple rye whisky of its kind available on the market.


This small-batch whisky is a marriage of two purely Canadian flavors: rye and maple. The rustic, authentic character of rye is complemented by rich maple notes derived from maple trees tapped at the first hint of spring in the province of Quebec—where syrup tapping was born and perfected centuries ago. This natural flavor is added to a blend of cask-aged, 3-, 5-, and 7-year-old blended rye whiskies, then matured further to create the smooth, singular flavor of TAP 357.

Twenty-nine of the most revered names in the world of wine will arrive in Naples, FL, Jan. 27-29 for the 2012 Naples Winter Wine Festival, “Believe in the Magic.”



There are nine vintners making their festival debut this year including GAJA, one of Italy’s greatest Barbaresco and Barolo producers, Dana Estates from Rutherford, which received a perfect 100-point score from wine critic Robert Parker Jr. for its 2007 Lotus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, and Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils from Burgundy, who according to the New York Times has experienced a “stunning revitalization” since it was purchased by Joseph Henriot in the mid-1990s. Also new to the festival is Korta Katarina from Croatia, owned by Naples Children & Education Foundation Trustees Penny and Lee Anderson, who will generously pour their wines as one of the vintners at the luncheon following the Meet the Kids Day event.
