This “Fine de Luxe” Canadian whisky blend was created in 1939 for a state tour by King George VI, and ceremoniously presented to him when he travelled across Canada aboard a special train. The bottle is designed to resemble a crown and the label illustrates a crown sat on a blue cushion.

Crown Royal was introduced into the USA in 1965 where it has subsequently become the best-selling Canadian whisky. In fact Crown Royal is the eighth largest spirits brand in the U.S. and the number one Canadian whisky in the world.
