About Crown Royal Noble Collection Winter Wheat Blended Canadian Whisky
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 whiskey that the King and Queen could enjoy in the privacy of their rail car. After sampling over 600 different blends and sifting through hundreds of different types of glass, labels, and bottles, the entrepreneur created what he believed to be the perfect whiskey and called it Crown Royal. At the beginning of their journey, the King and Queen were gifted ten cases of the whiskey from Canada to enjoy on their journey.
The distillery in Gimli, Manitoba stands on a 360-acre property and holds 1.5 million barrels of whiskey today. Using the finest Canadian ingredients, Lake Winnipeg's limestone-filtered water, and 12 distillation columns, they create the 50 whiskeys that make up their signature blend. 5 recipes go into making it and the liquids are aged for various amounts of time in used and first-fill charred oak barrels which are subject to the extreme temperature changes of the climate. After the whiskeys have been expertly aged, they are blended meticulously. Their Crown Royal Deluxe is the purest representation of that process and what they have on offer, as well as the backbone of most of their expressions.
The Noble Collection is a series of whiskey that pays tribute to the brand's history and roots, namely the part that King George VI played in the creation of the whiskey. The Winter Wheat Blended Canadian Whiskey is the 6th expression in the series. It has a unique mash bill of 51% winter wheat, 39% corn, and 10% barley. Aged in charred American white oak barrels, it's bottled at 90 proof and has a creamy profile with rich praline, banana bread, toffee, spice, and toasted oak notes.
