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.
Carefully aged in new, charred American oak barrels for no less than 13 years, this is the first age statement offered from Crown Royal. It is a rare stock of Canadian Whisky made with a mash bill of 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% barley malt, and is one of the five unique whiskies that comprise of Crown Royal’s signature blends. The complexity of the liquid intensifies with the aging process, bringing out richer and deeper notes of caramel and fruit. This remarkably smooth and layered whisky is hand selected from reserve stock, revealing its noble roots with every sip.
