" Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye is a unique whisky blend crafted from 90% rye mash whisky. Our Canadian rye grain is planted in the fall, sprouting until it is covered by a blanket of snow. When the snow melts the rye completes its growth over spring and summer. This distinctive growth cycle creates a perfect grain for a deliciously balanced whisky, extra ordinarily smooth with hints of fruit, cloves and spice. " ~ Distillery notes
