Crown Royal's New Peach Whisky Has Us Dreaming of Summer
Think of the cocktail possibilities.
It’s almost spring, but it’s bitterly cold in most parts of the country. The weather where you are is most likely frigid, dry, and all-around sucky. But don’t lose hope! It may feel like the dead of winter, but warmer weather is just around the corner—and we know just how we’re going to celebrate:
Crown Royal released a limited-edition peach-flavored whisky and it sounds just like summer in a bottle.
According to its website, it tastes like fuzzy peach skins with light notes of warm spice, oak, and a touch of vanilla
"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."
