Crown Royal Announces New Peach Crown Royal

Crown Royal Peach bottle

I remember when Crown Royal sent me to a NASCAR race at Indy a few years ago the first thing we did is go to dinner and taste Crown for like three hours. I seem to remember that the only specially flavored Crown that night was Maple. The rest on the menu were the XO, XR, rye and special reserve, I think. Flash-forward to 2019 and I’ve opened Crown bottles that were apple, honey, caramel and vanilla.

Now comes Peach from Crown. It’ll be a limited edition offering and it’ll hit shelves later this month just in time to grab a couple bottles for when you drive down to your parents winter home in Florida where you’ll throw half a cup of Peach on top of iced tea and relax. Bottles will retail in at $24.99 and you’ll get the customary 750 ml bottle that you’ve become used to. Spiked peach tea this summer. I’m in.
