Want to sip on something special? Queen Elizabeth has you covered
Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham Estate, which is located in Norfolk, just North of London, has launched its 'Sandringham Gin' ahead of the holiday season.
Each bottle of gin will cost a whopping £50, which converts to about 63 American dollars, so the drink won't be cheap, but rest assured it will be worth every penny.
The gin will contain ingredients that have been taken from the Sandringham Estate, including the Sharon fruit. Clearly, the gin will be rich with flavor as well as history when it comes to the Royal residence.
"The Sharon Fruit is grown in the Walled Garden on a sheltered wall at the end of what was a range of glasshouses, built on the winnings of the famous racehorse, Persimmon, owned by King Edward VII," according to the product description.
Buckingham Palace explained that the gin is only made in small batches, so it will in fact take at least two weeks to arrive following an order. As well as this, they did specify that the gin will only be available in the UK for the time being, meaning Americans will need to wait before they can get their hands on the drink.

What do you make of this? Will you be picking up a bottle of Queen Elizabeth's gin? We think that this could be the perfect gift coming into this holiday season. What better way to drink like a Royal!
The queen's heir Prince Charles also has his own gin. Charles' Highgrove House – his private country home in Gloucestershire, which is famous for its gardens and for Charles’ longstanding interest in organic growing and farming – produces its own Highgrove Organic Botanic London Dry Gin. All profits are donated to charity.
