Black Velvet is a hugely popular Canadian whisky, both in
the home market and abroad. However, massive sales in the U.S. have led the
marketing branch of Schenley, with which the Black Velvet brand was
consolidated in 1997, to give special attention to the American market. The
hugely popular three-year-old Black Velvet mixing whisky had already been

family, but that was not enough for some whisky lovers. Its popularity led to
demand for an up-market version in the U.S. as well, and as a result we have
the eight-year-old Black Velvet Reserve.
