Yukon Jack is a liqueur advertised as the "Black sheep of Canadian Liquors". It is a 100 proof (in USA) or 80 proof (in Canada) drink, made from Canadian whisky and honey. Yukon Jack is imported by Heublein Inc.[clarification needed] Yukon Jack is made in Valleyfield, Quebec. The version of the liqueur available for sale in the US is imported from Canada and then bottled in Norwalk, Connecticut.[1]

The taste is sweeter than straight whisky and bourbon, due to the honey that is added.[1]

In 2011, in recognition of the Regiment's history in the Yukon, Yukon Jack was selected by the South Alberta Light Horse as its Regimental liqueur.
