Just in time for the weather to start to get a little warmer, Crown Royal is launching a new flavor: Crown Royal Peach.
The limited-edition offering combines Crown Royal with the taste of juicy Georgia peaches. The result is an easy-sipping whisky that can be consumed on its own, or mixed in summertime beverages like iced tea.
Tasting notes for the new spirit describe it as a “vibrantly delicious whisky bursting with essence of freshly picked Georgia peaches, a touch of creamy vanilla and rich, signature blended whiskies. The full and warming liquids finishes sweet and smooth with an aroma of fuzzy peach skins and light notes of spice and oak.”
It certainly sounds like quite the experiment, but likely an experiment you want to take out for a test drive.
“As a leader in the whisky business, Crown Royal continues to take pride in ensuring we are ahead of the trends and creating high-quality products that help feed whisky drinkers’ desire to experiment,” says Sophie Kelly, Senior Vice President of Whisk(e)y at Diageo North America. “Crown Royal Peach is the perfect limited-time offering because the taste is undeniably delicious, great for summertime occasions, on the rocks or mixed with iced tea.”
The bottle will be available starting in March for a suggested retail price of $24.99 for a 750ml bottle.
