Royal Household unveils £30-a-bottle sloe gin made with ingredients from Palace garden 

A new official Buckingham Palace sloe gin made with ingredients freshly picked from the royal gardens has gone on sale after the first batch sold out online in a matter of hours.

The Royal Collection Trust launched the latest addition to its drinks collection following the success of its London dry gin last summer. 

Made with hand-picked whole sloe berries steeped in Buckingham Palace Gin, the Buckingham Palace Sloe Gin costs £30 for a 50cl bottle.

According to the charity’s online shop, it has a unique and intense flavour.

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

‘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 RCT offered its own suggestions of how best to enjoy the sloe gin this spring, recommending a ‘Sloe Royale’ cocktail.

‘Pour a 25ml measure of Buckingham Palace Sloe Gin into a fluted glass, top up with champagne or sparkling wine and garnish with fresh berries or orange peel,’ the RCT said.
