Crown Royal Peach Tea canned cocktail review

Posted by Jaime Fowler on

 Crown Royal cocktails in a can review by The Pursuit of Cocktails

Hi cocktail lovers! I have been seeing these Crown Royal cans everywhere lately so I decided it was time to give them a try. A lot of major brands have jumped into the ready-to-drink cocktail market including new canned cocktails from the heaviest hitters in the whiskey market - Crown Royal, Jack Daniels, and Jim Beam. And you know your girl loves a whiskey cocktail so . . . first up is the Crown Royal Peach Tea cans.

I picked up all three of the Crown Royal canned cocktails to review and I'll be trying them over the course of the next few weeks to see if these are worth picking up or if you should skip them. I want to be optimistic that these will be great cocktails in a can but in the past I've been pretty disappointed in what the "big guys" bring to the table for their canned cocktails. Fingers crossed Crown Royal will buck that trend.

Right off the bat I have to tell you the packaging on these cans is next level. I love good packaging and these are officially the best I've seen so far. The outer box is really nice with a metallic detail and it opens like an actual Crown Royal box. Most canned cocktails come in light cardboard boxes with glued down flaps. The Crown Royal canned cocktails come in a luxe box with a top that opens and can be re-close. Fancy! And the cans! They also have the really pretty metallic detail but what blew my mind was the texture of the can. Each of the cans has a different raised detail pattern. If you want some ASMR with your canned cocktails, you'll have to check these out.

So the packaging is on point. I'm praying what is inside is just as well thought out.

I added a "Cheer" Swizzly Stick and some garnish and then I was ready to sip.

Here is my official review of the Crown Royal Peach Tea canned cocktail:

3 out of 5 cocktail shakers

This cocktail is okay. I liked it just fine - but it is nothing to write home about. I was really really hoping that Crown Royal would bring it but their Peach Tea can is really a pretty average ready-to-drink cocktail. 
The Crown Royal Peach Tea canned cocktail does have pretty good flavor. You can taste the peach and the tea. I do wish both flavors were a little stronger. Overall, it tasted a little watered down to me, like a cocktail that has been neglected and the ice has melted. Maybe that is because they were trying to stay at a lower ABV ( it is 7%)? Who knows. Either way, there is nothing wrong with this cocktail. I love anything peach flavored so I don't dislike it, I'm just underwhelmed.
** Side note: As a person who has tried 150+ canned cocktails, if this is the first one you've ever tried, please do me a favor and give another, smaller brand a try before you write off canned cocktails all together. I've got a blog full of amazing options to try. Check out my five-star cocktail list for inspo. Please and thank you! :)

One shaker = not sweet at all  // Five shakers = your teeth may curl

The Crown Royal Peach Tea canned cocktail is sweet but not too sweet. It does have some sweetness from the peach flavor but I didn't pick up on any of the sweet whiskey flavor I was expecting. I actually thought this cocktail would be a lot sweeter than it is.

Officially this one rings in at 7% ABV which is pretty average for a ready-to-drink cocktail. These are not crazy strong whiskey drinks so you don't have anything to worry about on that front. I can't say that I got much of a boozy sensation from the first few sips but I'm sure it would build up as you finished the can.

Would I buy this ready to drink cocktail again?

Maaaaybe. I'm a little on the fence about this one. In some ways I liked but in other ways it is really just a super average canned cocktail and there are so many other amazing canned cocktails (mostly from smaller brands) that are so much better that I would kind of hate to waste calories and money on this specific one again.

I am still hopeful for the other two Crown Royal canned cocktails - the Washington Apple and Whiskey & Cola - so I am going to hold off on forming my opinion until I've had a chance to try those as well.
