Proceeds from the sale of this bottle of Seagrass with the Ocean Foundation hangtag will be donated to the Ocean Foundation, to help reverse the trend of the destruction of ocean environments around the world, specifically focusing on the conservation and restoration of seagrass meadows.
Why focus on seagrass? It’s not just because it inspires our whiskey. Intact coastal ecosystems are one of the planet’s most valuable natural resources. Seagrass meadows, as well as mangrove forests and salt marshes, protect coastal communities from erosion and flooding by absorbing and reducing wave energy.

High concentrations of bright, fruity esters lend a perfume-like character to the aroma. Honeydew melon and plum sit alongside a slice of ripe apricot resting out in the sun. The underlying rye is revealed by a sea-like salinity, tarragon, and elderflower.
Sweet and juicy, Seagrass opens on pear, lychee, and white grapefruit. Classic rye flavors of cinnamon, rosemary, fennel seed, and rosehip aren’t far behind. Unctuous texture and sandy tannin are complemented by a delicate astringency so common to Canadian whiskeys.
Fresh and clean, but the persistent tannin and astringency focus the powerful burst of camphor, chalk dust, and scorched earth.
