Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall have launched a gin using herbs grown in their home.
Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall have had a gin made using ingredients grown in their own home.
Luxury department store Fortnum & Mason have launched the alcoholic gin that was made using botanicals from the royal couple’s garden at their Highgrove residence.
‘This gin is inspired by the gardens at Highgrove, the private residence of HRH The Prince Of Wales,’ writes the luxury store in the product description.
‘This bright gin is distilled in Oxford using rare heritage grain grown at Highgrove and the finest organic lemon verbena, thyme and rosemary’.
Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla aren’t the only members of the Royal Family to open up their gardens to craft a refreshing gin, as the Queen also had a tipple made from her garden earlier this year.
The lovely drink was made using botanicals from the garden at Buckingham Palace, with the product description on the Royal Collection website reading, ‘Presenting the launch of our Buckingham Palace gin.
‘The spirit has a unique royal origin, with many of its citrus and herbal notes sourced from botanicals gathered in the Buckingham Palace Gardens.’
Giving a background the ingredients, they continued, ‘Lemon, verbena, hawthorn berries and mulberry leaves are among the 12 botanicals hand-picked for the gin in the Gardens at Buckingham Palace, which span 16 hectares and provide a habitat for 30 species of bird and over 250 species of wild flower.’
The new gin is small batch so it probably won’t be available for long. So if you want to sit back and sip like the royal couple we’d snap one up quick!
