    Domestic production in the US I believe, although under ownership of a Canadian company.

    During prohibition in America (1920-1933), Canadian whiskey production flourished and there was a fair amount of bootlegging across the border. After prohibition ended, Canadian companies were best-placed to capitalise on the re-opened American market since they had the benefit of recent expertise, technology and equipment under their belts versus US companies that were re-opening after more than ten years of inactivity.

    Distillers Corporation-Seagrams Ltd (DCL) of Montreal were one such company. Although they set up an HQ in new York to administer their operations in America they realised that (for reasons related to taxation and logistics) they could reach more of the US market if they had production facilities there rather than being a Canadian exporter. To be granted a permit for alcohol production in America, foreign investors had to have no record of bootlegging convictions and, since DCL had kept a clean sheet, they were good-to-go.

    Through acquisition, they obtained the Rossville Union Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana (1933); the Calvert Distillery in Relay, Maryland (1934); and then built a huge new distillery in Louisville, Kentucky (completed 1937). DCL were specialists in vat-blended whiskies and brought that same expertise into their American operations, including for the production of 'Old Drum'.
