About Crown Royal whiskey

Crown Royal is a Canadian whisky introduced in 1939 as a tribute to the royal tour of Canada of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. It was available only in Canada until 1964, then introduced in the US in the 1960’s. Some people consider Canadian whisky at the lower strata of the whiskey world, but it’s very popular and can make a mean drink.

There are many varieties of Crown Royal whisky, including:

  • Signature series: Deluxe, Rye, Black, Blender‘s Mash
  • Master series: XR, XO, Reserve, Wine Barrel Finish
  • Flavor series: Apple, Vanilla, Peach, Salted Caramel
  • Retired: XR (Red), Honey, Cornerstone, Maple, Texas Mesquite
