You can’t get more royale than this cocktail recipe! This sloe gin comes directly from the Queen herself, via the The Royal Collection Trust, a department of the Royal Household. They’ve launched the Buckingham Palace Sloe Gin to partner with their already successful Buckingham Palace Gin.
Their signature gin is infused with botanicals from the Palace garden including lemon verbena, hawthorn berries, bay leaves and mulberry leaves. Now with their second expression, the Sloe Gin, their original gin has been steeped with hand-picked whole sloe berries, giving the sloe gin a unique and intense fruit flavour.
Also, all profits from sales of the Sloe Gin go to The Royal Collection Trust, a registered charity, that helps fund the care and conservation of the Royal Collection, and the promotion of access and enjoyment of the Collection through exhibitions, publications, loans and educational programmes. Cheers to that!
