Do you know that Forty Creek Canadian Whisky is a Sazerac brand?
Indirectly, it is.
Sazerac has a division called Gemeni. They are an importer, which means they license the U.S. marketing rights but don't own the brands they sell. One of their brands is Forty Creek Canadian Whisky. I thought John Hall, the distiller who also owns the distillery and winery where Forty Creek is made, did that himself, but this makes more sense.
