About Crown Royal Blackberry

Crown Royal blackberry whiskey was first introduced in 2024. It’s a blackberry-flavored whiskey, joining their other flavored whiskey lineup, which also includes apple, peach, and salted caramel.

While it’s touted as a summer seasonal variant, Crown blackberry released at the end of February, with most shipments occurring the first two weeks of March.

Since blackberry is also a nice Spring flavor, that works out well, and there are a lot of great drinks you can make with it for Easter and other Spring functions. However, it’s definitely a great summer flavor as well, as long as you can hang onto your bottle that long!

Crown blackberry is an extremely limited release, with both online and physical retailers often limiting purchase quantities to 1-2 bottles at a time due to the limited stock.

If you did manage to snag a bottle, though, let’s talk about what you can do with it now!
