How the world sees Canadians (Update: seal clubbing content inside)

Behold the whiskey and gin section at the local Sainsbury’s (large grocery store, picture of the facade here).

Canadian whiskey is made from Rye, giving it a more mellow taste.  It’s something that shows up in American movies and TV shows from time to time (Don Draper drinks Canadian Club) and CC advertised itself on its international presence for years (commercial).

Well, after 2 months in London this is the closest I’ve found.  No one at my workplace has heard of Canadian Club.  Sad but true.

UPDATE: Canadian Club whiskey commercial, obviously not aired in the Canadian market.  Note accents, weather stereotypes.
