Crown Royal XO

First unveiled via social media in December, Crown Royal officially announce the introduction of their new ultra-premium Canadian whisky, the Crown Royal XO.

Handcrafted by master blender Andrew MacKay, their newest variant is a unique blend of more than 50 of Crown’s finest whiskies, which are finished in cognac casks from the French Limousin Forest, resulting in a complex expression of the signature blend.

The top-shelf craft is an amber/topaz whisky, deliciously balanced with hints of vanilla, spice and rich dried fruit, closing with an impeccably smooth finish.

Crown Royal was originally created to commemorate a grand tour of Canada made by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain in 1939 — and often referred to as a noble spirit. MacKay pays homage to this distinguished tradition with his handcrafted XO blend.

“The ultra-premium nature Crown Royal XO and the smoothness of the liquid can be attributed to the handcrafted approach we took while creating the unique blend,” said MacKay. “We’re looking forward to sharing this special blend with adults across the country and encourage them to incorporate it into their celebrations of extraordinary moments and events.”

Crown Royal XO is available now nationwide for $50 for a 750 ml bottle.
