Proof66 Notes

Crown Royal Hand Selected Barrel is actually not a blended whisky but rather the result of a single barrel selected for bottling. It is a blended grain whisky consisting of corn, rye, and malted barley, which would be considered a "high rye" bourbon grain bill if it were made in the United States.

Crown Royal Hand Selected Barrel Whisky was named Best Canadian Whisky in the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (out of a field of 27 whiskies).

Crown Royal was first produced to in 1939 by Seagram's (then a Canadian company but now defunct with the label owned by Pernod-Ricard) to honor the Canadian tour by British royals King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Crown is probably the most widely known and certainly one of the more widely available Canadian Whisky on the market. Currently, it's the top-selling Canadian whisky in the United States; the brand itself is owned by the Big Liquor Conglomerate Diageo. The distillery itself is, of course, located in Canada. Some may recall a narrowly averted labor strike in 2007 that would--heaven forfend!--have interrupted whisky production. One time produced in Ontario but moved production to Manitoba in 1992.
