Is Crown royal peach still available?
It was a limited edition first and was hard to find but later it got back to stores due to high demand and is still available. You can find peach flavored whiskey online and in physical stores.
Does crown royal peach expire?
If you keep it sealed and store it in a cool and dry place away from sunlight it will remain good as other whiskeys. Once opened its contact with oxygen will affect the taste a little and if it is left open it will eventually evaporate.
Do you keep crown royal in a freezer?
It doesn’t matter if you put it in a freezer or not, keeping any whiskey in a freezer will not affect it. If the whiskey is in a bottle then freezing it might cause a problem, soda will fizz out from it eventually and will create a mess. Spirits that are aged and kept in a barrel for longer have a lot of depth so it’s better to keep it out in a cool and dry place away from sunlight.
