Crown Royal (from Wikipedia):

Crown Royal is a blended Canadian whiskey, 40% alcohol by volume, 80 proof.The production of Crown Royal began in 1939 coincident with the first Royal Tour of Canada by reigning monarch King George VI and his wife Queen Elizabeth. To mark this historic occasion, Samuel Bronfman, President of the Seagram Company, decided to create a quality whisky to be packaged in a crown-shaped bottle and dressed in a distinctive royal purple bag. Like the packaging, the name chosen for the product was intended to reflect the quality of the spirit, a marketing concept that quickly caught consumer attention. It was available only in Canada until 1964.

The Sour Apple Pucker is a little bit sweet, a little bit tart, and while it’s probably not a “gourmet” liqueur, it adds a nice zip to a lot of cocktails.
