Peach Mist, Cinnamon Mist and Maple Mist are available in 50ml and 750ml bottle sizes in select U.S. markets. Each bottle will be presented at 70 proof with a suggested retail price of $9.99 for a 750ml bottle.

"Mist Flavors bring together the smooth taste of Canadian whisky with a variety of complementary flavors in a different way," said Senior Brand Director Pedro Berrueco. "Peach, Cinnamon and Maple Mist provide new ways to enjoy the taste of Canadian whisky and are ideal for enjoying on their own or in a refreshing cocktail."

Canadian Mist is recognized for its mellow, smooth taste. It is triple distilled and aged in white oak barrels, charred to expose the "red layer" and create a light-tasting, flavorful whisky. The whisky is then added to the proprietary peach, cinnamon or maple liqueur to create the unique, smooth taste of Mist Flavors.

Mist Flavors will be introduced in 14 markets this summer:  Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin.
