Crown Royal's smooth, complex taste is derived from a blend of super-premium whiskies. After the individual whiskies reach maturity in special oak casks, they are blended and set aside, becoming smoother and mellower as they age. Crown Royal whisky can be enjoyed straight up or on the rocks, and in a variety of mixed drinks.
|The first exquisite blend of Crown Royal Canadian whisky was meticulously crafted from 50 select whiskies, dressed in the finest cut glass and wrapped in purple robes, to commemorate the first grand tour of Canada by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, in 1939. And in truly noble fashion, this bottle of Crown Royal was placed on the Royal train as a symbol of the hardworking and genuine nature of the Canadian people.
Today, the legacy of Crown Royal remains how it began, the epitome of Canadian whisky, with a smooth taste and a regal style all its own.
