In 1939, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth made history when they became the first reigning monarchs to journey across North America, traveling from Quebec City to Vancouver by train. Prior to their arrival, a local entrepreneur set out to craft a whisky that the King and Queen could enjoy in the privacy of their rail car.

After sampling over 600 different blends of whisky, and scouring through hundreds of different types of glass, labels, and bottles, the entrepreneur created what he believed to be the perfect whisky and called it Crown Royal. At the beginning of their journey, the King and Queen were gifted ten cases of the whisky from Canada to enjoy on their journey.

The traditional Crown Royal is a bountiful blend of 50 different whiskies that are married harmoniously into a single expression. This Crown Royal Hand Selected Barrel is a break from the norm, allowing connoisseurs to experience the foundation of one of the most famous whiskies in the world, the cornerstone of their classic blend: their Coffey Rye.

The majority of Canadian whiskies are comprised of a mash bill of corn, rye, and malted barley. These grains are then mashed, fermented and distilled, at which point they are aged in new oak barrels. This hand-selected barrel is drawn exclusively from whisky produced using Crown Royal’s enormous “Coffee Rye” still, which is distilled to a lower ABV and aged for seven years in virgin oak barrels.

This whisky is less oak-forward than you’d expect from a single barrel, rather it is heavy on notes of sweet baked goods, nutty flavors, and caramelized fruits. The finish is quite long and smooth.
