Default Gooderham and Worts

Hello all,

I was visiting Chicago and in a little liquor store there sat two bottles of Gooderham and Worts whiskey. They owner said "you're from Canada? Will you buy these off me please? They've been sitting here since I opened the shop and no one has ever bought them." I gladly too them off his hands, but then mentioned to his chagrin, that this distillery closed before I was born!

I then quickly made my exit, especially after paying only $20 a bottle!

Now they aren't dated, so I was hoping someone here could help out a date to them. I've scoured the net but haven't been able to find anything on them.

I would like to post a picture, but as it's my first post I think that function is blocked.

It says hand crafted bottle 26272 if that helps!

Thanks

Default Gooderham and worts

This is taken from canadianwhisky.org

"Late in the 1990s, Corby Distillers did something bold. Having recently taken over management of North America’s largest distillery, the Hiram Walker plant in Windsor, Ontario, Corby’s began to work on developing some new, high-end Canadian whiskies.
The result was the short-lived and sadly missed Canadian Whisky Guild. Three whiskies comprised the guild: a soft Canadian blend called Gooderham and Worts, the all-rye-grain Lot No. 40, and a fruity, port-finished ten year old called Pike Creek.
Connoisseurs soon found Lot No. 40 and their enthusiasm turned it into a legend. Meanwhile, both Pike Creek and Gooderham and Worts kind of got lost in the shuffle. Canadians just weren’t ready for such richly flavourful premium whiskies. Just a few years after it was introduced, the Canadian Whisky Guild was discontinued. Sales simply had not met expectations.
But in the autumn of 2012, they are trying again. The team at Corby’s has resurrected the recipes and the packaging for two of the three Whisky Guild members. Lot No. 40 has made a grand re-entry and right behind it comes Pike Creek, a soft and richly fruity delicacy, hand crafted by Master Blender Don Livermore and his team at the Hiram Walker plant."
