As part of our Thunder at the Peaks Car Show this Saturday, July 1, we are offering a special free tasting featuring Crown Royal Canadian Whiskies and the beers of Crooked Stave, one of Colorado’s most innovative breweries.
Saturday’s Crown Royal selections are:
Crown Royal Fine Deluxe: Crown Royal’s flagship is matured to perfection in white oak barrels, carrying a depth of malted smoothness that sets the standard for Canadian blends. Created to celebrate a visit from King George VI & Queen Elizabeth in 1939, Crown Royal is full-bodied, yet delicately smooth and creamy, with hints of oak and vanilla. 40% ABV.
Crown Royal XO: Launched in 2014, Crown Royal’s XO is a blend of approximately 50 whiskies which are married and then aged in cognac casks from the Limousin Forest in France. Rich, sweet, and smooth, this is arguably the most complex whisky in their range. 40% ABV.
Crown Royal Vanilla: Specially selected whiskies are infused with the rich flavor of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. The result is a uniquely sophisticated whisky, bursting with the bold flavor of vanilla and the distinctive smoothness of Crown Royal. 35% ABV.
Crown Royal Regal Apple: To create this extraordinary blend, Crown Royal master whisky blenders hand-select batches and infuse them with Regal Gala Apples for a delicious Canadian whisky balanced with notes of crisp apple flavor and light notes of caramel and spice. An interesting addition for summer and fall months. 35% ABV.
**Crown Royal embroidery specialists are also on hand to customize the signature bags from any Crown Royal product you purchase.**
