Crown Royal

Crown Royal • this painting is sold

The production of Crown Royal began in 1939 coincident with the first Royal Tour of Canada by reigning monarch King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. To mark this historic occasion, Samuel Bronfman, President of the Seagram Company, decided to create a quality whisky to be packaged in a crown-shaped bottle and dressed in a distinctive royal purple bag. Like the packaging, the name chosen for the product was intended to reflect the quality of the spirit, a marketing concept that quickly caught consumer attention. It was available only in Canada until 1964.

Today, Crown Royal is produced solely at the Crown Royal distillery at Gimli, on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Daily production of Crown Royal uses 10,000 bushels of grain and requires 624,438 Imperial gallons (2,838,750 L/749,918 US gal) of water. The whisky produced at the Manitoba distillery is stored in 2 million barrels, stored in 46 warehouses, over 5 acres of land. 2006 sales of Crown Royal amounted to over US $500M.

Crown Royal .... fit for a King! (...or Queen...)
