Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye is the 2016 World Whisky of the Year
Crown Royal has made history with their Northern Harvest Rye. World renowned whisky writer Jim Murray has named it the 2016 World Whisky of the Year, the first time a Canadian Whisky has received the honor.
“Crown Royal Northern Harvest pops up out of nowhere and changes the game,” said Murray of the whisky, which he awarded a record-tying 97.5 out of 100 points. “It certainly puts the rye into Canadian Rye. To say this is a masterpiece is barely doing it justice.”
In addition to the high praise Crown Royal received from Jim Murray, the Northern Harvest Rye received a double gold medal at this year’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition. This all comes shortly after Crown Royal launched their new campaign titled ‘The One Made for a King’. You can view the TV spots on their YouTube channel here YouTube.com/CrownRoyalBrand.
The latest variant to be introduced by Crown Royal, Northern Harvest Rye (90 proof, 45% ABV) is the brand’s first ever blended, 90% rye whisky and embodies a smooth and spicy flavor profile that can be mixed into traditional rye cocktails or enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
