This ordained and highly acclaimed

Prohibition forced Walker to leave the “dry"" state of Michigan, and strategically transplant his distillery across the Detroit River to Windsor, Ontario. Located just over the border Walker was actually able to continue legally producing whisky when the sale of beverage alcohol was prohibited in the United States. whisky also became one of the most smuggled whiskies in the U.S. at the start of Prohibition. The Canadian Club became a haven of clandestine activities at the peak of America’s Prohibition.

Rumor has it that CC was highly favored by the likes of Al Capone, and that he had a lucrative business scheme smuggling the spirit across the Detroit River. Walker’s whisky was particularly popular in the late 19th century gentlemen's clubs of the United States and Canada; this is where it got the name "Club Whisky".

Walker also revolutionized the whiskey industry by aging his spirit in oak barrels for a minimum of five years, at a time that all of the US bourbons and whiskies were aged for less than a year.
