Crown Royal has been by far the best selling Canadian whisky brand with almost 7 million cases sold annually worldwide.
The brand has been extremely popular in Texas and in the spring of 2018 Diageo, the brand owner, commemorated Texans with limited edition of Crown Royal Texas Mesquite. The whisky combines smoothness of Crown Royal de Luxe with the smoky soul of locally sourced Texas mesquite wood and is a perfect choice for summertime grilling, barbecue and all kind of outdoor celebration. Crown Royal, a blend of up to 50 whiskies, is produced at the Diageo owned Gimli Distillery in Manitoba.
