Crown Royal Maple Finished


Last week TLP attended a Crown Royal event at Social Wine Bar in downtown Charleston, where they debuted their newest flavor, Crown Royal Maple Finished. The room was buzzing with first-timers saying how much they loved the new product. As you walked up the stairs to the party, you were engulfed by the sweet scent of maple which lingered in the air for the rest of the night. The whole place smell reminiscent of pancakes in the morning.

Through out the night, guests had the chance to mingle with Crown Royal Master of Whisky Gerry Graham while sipping on cocktails made by mixology phenom Troy Sidle himself and snacking on treats from the Social kitchen. Guests were even given the chance to try their hand at the shaker by creating their own Crown Royal Maple shots, complete with a catchy name. The winning shot was fittingly titled “Easy Like Sunday Morning”. The event was a delightful time for all who attended.

With so many flavored whiskies making their appearance on the drinking scene, it only felt natural for Crown Royal to create their own. And what’s more appropriate for a Canadian-based company than a maple leaf? A match made in heaven, we’d say! The liquor begins with the legendary taste of Crown Royal whisky and then incorporates a touch of natural maple flavor that’s enhanced through a proprietary maple toasted oak finishing process for added smoothness. Rich colors or amber and topaz blend to create a full-bodied appearance.

To fully experience the liquid’s versatile flavor, Crown Royal Maple Finished can be enjoyed as a shot, on the rocks or as the key ingredient in a number of cocktails, such as the Crown Maple Old Fashioned which Sidle mixed up for party guests. If you are looking for a new cocktail that will wow your guests at your next get-together, look no further than the recipe below!
