The British royal family certainly has a knack for cocktail creations, as demonstrated by Meghan Markle’s Pimm’s Cup recipe that circulated late last month. This week, Buckingham Palace has officially announced its own venture into the spirits business, releasing a small-batch Buckingham Palace Gin.
Developed by the Royal Collection Trust, a charitable branch of the Royal Household, the gin contains 12 botanicals picked straight from the gardens of Buckingham Palace. A few noteworthy components include lemon, verbena, hawthorn berries, and mulberry leaves.
The Royal Collection Shop recommends drinking the regal spirit in a Gin & Tonic, but those who prefer a Martini will surely gain a royal seal of approval from Queen Elizabeth II. At the moment the offering is only available for purchase online in the U.K., with the bottle retailing at 40 pounds (about $50).
