Canadian whisky is a type of whisky produced in Canada. Most Canadian whiskies are blended multi-grain liquors containing a large percentage of corn spirits, and are typically lighter and smoother than other whisky styles. Several hundred years ago, when Canadian distillers began adding small amounts of highly-flavourful rye grain to their mashes people began demanding this new rye-flavoured whisky, referring to it simply as “rye”. Today, as for the past two centuries, the terms “rye whisky” and “Canadian whisky” are used interchangeably in Canada and (as defined in Canadian law) refer to exactly the same product, which generally is made with only a small amount of rye grain.
Crown Royal ® Whisky was first created as a gift for the King and Queen of England to celebrate their visit to Canada in 1939 – a delight truly fit for royalty. To this day, every drop of Crown Royal blended whisky is crafted to meet the same uncompromising standards, making it, to many discerning palates, the very best whisky of all whisky brands.
