The Queen is now selling gin made from ingredients from her garden at Sandringham.https://www.usatoday.com/...er-own-garden/6408060002/
The queen's Sandringham estate Ė her private country house in Norfolk, north of London, where the royal family typically spends Christmas Ė has launched its Sandringham Gin just in time for the holidays.
For 50 pounds a bottle, the equivalent of nearly $63, drinkers can taste ingredients straight from the royal residence's gardens, including the Sharon fruit. It's not only rich in flavor, but history as well.
"The Sharon Fruit is grown in the Walled Garden on a sheltered wall at the end of what was a range of glass houses, built on the winnings of the famous racehorse, Persimmon, owned by King Edward VII," according to the product description.
The Sandringham Gin is distilled locally in small batches, so delivery may take up to two weeks. Those of us across the pond, however, won't be able to purchase the gin because it's only available in the United Kingdom.
This isn't the first time the royal family has dabbled in alcohol production. Over the summer, Buckingham Palace Gin went on sale online and sold out within hours.
The queen's heir Prince Charles also has his own gin. Charles' Highgrove House Ė his private country home in Gloucestershire, which is famous for its gardens and for Charlesí longstanding interest in organic growing and farming Ė produces its own Highgrove Organic Botanic London Dry Gin. All profits are donated to charity.
