We might not be royalty, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t drink like the royal family. The Royal Collection Trust is debuting a London dry gin that is made with botanicals – several of which are sourced straight from the Buckingham Palace garden! And the best part is this liquor won’t cost you a fortune to add it to your home bar.
The gin is a small batch that is infused with 12 different botanicals, most of which come directly from the royal gardens. In case you’re wondering which ones are the royal garden infusions, it’s lemon verbena, hawthorn berries, bay leaves, and mulberry leaves. Sounds quite lovely.

PRE-ORDER TODAY Presenting the launch of our Buckingham Palace gin. The spirit has a unique royal origin, with many of its citrus and herbal notes sourced from botanicals gathered in the Buckingham Palace Gardens. Lemon verbena, hawthorn berries and mulberry leaves are among the 12 botanicals hand-picked for the gin in the Gardens at Buckingham Palace, which span 16 hectares and provide a habitat for 30 species of bird and over 250 species of wild flower. For the perfect summer thirst-quencher, the recommended serving method is to pour a measure of the gin into an ice-filled short tumbler before topping up with tonic and garnishing with a slice of lemon. #buckinghampalacegin #ginandtonic #gin #buckinghampalacegardens #buckinghampalace Shop with us at www.royalcollectionshop.co.uk
This gin is said to be an ABV of 42%. You can purchase it in 23-ounce bottles. Each bottle is about $50, but they’re currently only deliverable within the United Kingdom. Additionally, they can only be bought online. If you can find a way to get your hands on a bottle it’s well worth it since this is the Buckingham Palace Gin that gets served at official palace events!
The accompanying statement recommends that the gin be poured over ice, topped off with tonic, and garnished with a lemon slice. Additionally, all the sale proceeds from the gin will go to the Royal Collection Trust – a registered charity that puts on exhibitions, publications, loans, and educational programs.
