Crown Royal has just released Crown Royal Monarch 75th Anniversary Blend, a limited time offering created by Master Blender Andrew MacKay. It’s meant to commemorate the 75 years that Crown Royal has been producing Canadian Whisky.
It all started in 1939, when King George VI and Queen Elizabeth became the first reigning monarchs to journey across North America, traveling from coast to coast via train. An enterprising Canadian man decided to craft a whisky for the occasion, with the result being Crown Royal cloaked in that trademark purple bag.
Now, 75 years later, Crown has created a limited edition whisky to honor the anniversary. Dubbed Crown Royal Monarch 75th Anniversary Blend, this expression joins hand-picked whiskies from the brand’s extensive stock. The result is a whisky flush with vanilla, caramel, dried fruits and rich toffee, plus some soft spices.
And here, they’re eschewing the traditional purple bag for one that’s silver and gold. The bottle itself is taller than the original, with some unique etchings and a gold crown cap, and each bottle is individually numbered. It’s a handsome package.
