Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey
The first exquisite blend of Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey 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.
PALATE – Delicately smooth and creamy with hints of oak and the sweet flavor of vanilla.
Crown Royal is produced solely at the company’s distillery at Gimli, on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Daily production of Crown Royal uses 10,000 bushels of rye, corn and barley sourced from Manitoba and surrounding provinces, and requires 750,000 imperial gallons (3,400,000 L; 900,000 US gal) of water naturally filtered through the limestone beneath the lake. The whisky produced at the Manitoba distillery is stored in 1.5 million barrels, located in 50 warehouses over 5 acres of land. The whisky is then blended and bottled in Amherstburg, Ontario. Crown was also produced in Waterloo, Ontario, until the plant there closed in 1992 and since redeveloped.
