Q.Why is Crown Royal XR so expensive?
A.As the name suggests, with a bottle of CR Extra Rare, you’re paying for the fact that there is a very limited supply. Crown Royal XR is so expensive because the distillery burned down in 1993, meaning there will never be any more produced. Once the last batch is gone, it’s gone!
