The Real McCoy

Did you know Canada.. William "Bill" Frederick McCoy was as an American sea captain and, more interestingly, a rum runner smuggler during the Prohibition in the United States.

McCoy worked "rum row", mostly bringing in rum from the Caribbean but then turned to high quality Canadian whiskey which he was famous for delivering. McCoy's legend grew with his quality liquor and fair-dealing brought about the phrase: "it's the real McCoy".

Today Canadian whiskey continues to be of the highest quality in the world and known for it's distinctive taste - it's still the real McCoy!
