The Canadian Whisky with a Royal Heritage

Crown Royal, America's leading super premium whisky, has a tradition as long and distinctive as its taste. Specially blended to commemorate a grand tour of Canada made by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain in 1939, Crown Royal's smooth, elegant style reflects its aristocratic origins and is considered the epitome of Canadian whisky.

When the Royal Couple embarked on a special Canadian Pacific train for their tour, the people of Canada opened their hearts to welcome them. As a tribute, Seagram ordered the preparation of a commemorative blend of a deluxe Canadian whisky.

Placed aboard the Royal Train, Crown Royal was the ideal gift for the Royal Couple who were respected for their knowledge and love of fine whiskies. From the magnificent Canadian Rockies to the grandeur of Montreal, Crown Royal was the highlight of the journey.

When Crown Royal was made available to the public in Canada, the response from consumers was immediate and exuberant. For many years thereafter, Americans could only purchase Crown Royal when visiting Canada. When launched in the United States in 1964, Crown Royal earned the enthusiasm and loyalty of America's whisky connoisseurs.

Crown Royal has its origins in ancient Rocky Mountain glaciers, where Canada's sparkling lakes and rivers form a network of waterways that are among the world's purest sources of water. Water is integral to the taste of whisky, so it is natural that Canada produces Crown Royal, one of the world's finest whiskies.

Stayed tuned in the next couple of months for some news from Crown Royal. Christmas Crown is on the way. And yes, Crown Royal is my favourite drink, enjoyed year round in our household!

Happy Halloween

Ok, I didn't have a bunch of time to come up with a great Halloween feature. I did have time to dig out a classic shooter recipe to stir up the Halloween spirit.. (many puns intended there!)

Bloody Brain

  • 1 oz. White Creme de Cacao
  • 1 oz. Amaretto
  • 1 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream
  • Splash of Grenadine


It's a layered shot. First pour the creme de cacao. Then the amaretto and then the Bailey's. Insert a toothpick to the bottom of the shot glass and dribble some grenadine so it floats in the bottom of the glass. Tastes like a chocolate covered cherry!
