Re: Morley Mackenzie Canadian Rye Whisky
To the poster of the question on 1935 Mackenzie Whiskey. I do have some facts. here is a bit of a bio on the whiskey. It was named after a Morley Albert MacKenzie. Morley E. McKenzie was born in the town of Tweed, Ontario in 1890.
He started his business career as a junior clerk in the Traders Bank of Canada in 1907, and eventually went to the Royal Bank where he became the manager of the Royal Bank in Sudbury. While in Sudbury, he married Florence Morrison, the daughter of the Reverend Dr. Morrison.
When he came to Sudbury he was already a mason, While in Sudbury, he became a member of the Sudbury Shrine Club.
In 1921 he organized the Ontario Provincial Savings Offices, where he remained until 1935. He then became general sales manager for Calvert Distilleries. he was a true philanthopist championing the efforts during the 2nd world war, contributed in excess of $50,000.00 to the Evening Telegram’s British War Victim’s Fund. The charitable work of the Shrine Clubs on behalf of crippled children was a major interest of Noble McKenzie. I only just heard that he had a whiskey made by Calvert Distilleries.
