Fancy a gin made from botanicals taken from Buckingham Palace’s own back garden?
Described as a small-batch London dry gin, it has been infused with citrus and herbal notes derived from 12 botanicals, several of which are from Buckingham Palace garden, including lemon verbena, hawthorn berries, bay leaves and mulberry leaves.
Unsurprisingly, the Buckingham Palace gin will also be served at official events at the Palace.

If you’re a gin-completist who has to try every gin made, or a monarchist, then the Buckingham Palace gin can be purchased here at £40 for a 70cl bottle or from the Royal Collection Trust shops.
Profits from sales of the gin go to The Royal Collection Trust, the charity that funds the care and conservation of the Royal Collection.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
