Queen Releases New Buckingham Palace Sloe Gin

Buckingham Palace's very own sloe gin has officially gone on sale.

The Royal Collection Trust (RCT) has launched a brand new addition to its drinks collection, in the wake of its successful London dry gin launch last summer.

Yep, that's a Queenie-approved tipple straight from her very own garden.

The RCT suggests sipping the sloe gin in a 'Sloe Royale' cocktail, which is made using 25ml of Buckingham Palace Sloe Gin into a fluted glass, topped up with champagne or sparkling wine and garnish of your choice.

But you can also enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or with tonic as you wish.

Created using hand-picked whole sloe berries which are infused with Buckingham Palace Gin, the Buckingham Palace Sloe Gin is selling for £30, and comes in a 50cl bottle.

The charity's online shop states that the gin has a unique flavour profile.

"The red fruits and notes of cloves and kirsch spices deliver a clean and medium aroma intensity on the nose," the description reads.

"The plums and cranberries create a light ruby colour and, combined with marzipan, it serves a medium sweet flavour with added bitterness from the citrus fruits and followed by the juniper and ginger spices."

The new drink drop comes after the roaring success of the Buckingham Palace Gin, which was launched in July 2020 and sold out within eight hours of its release.

The original palace ripple was created using botanicals from the Palace garden, which included hawthorn berries, lemon verbena, bay leaves and mulberry leaves.

All profits from sales of the sloe gin are being given directly to the RCT, which funds the care and conservation of the Royal Collection.

Buckingham Palace Sloe Gin (26% ABV) is available to purchase online here, and can also be bought in Royal Collection Trust shops.
