This fruity flavoursome gin is made using a crop of rhubarb that was originally grown in the kitchen gardens of Buckingham Palace during the reign of Queen Victoria, and has since had quite a journey. Half of the crop was sent to the Vice Regal Lodge in Dublin, which later became the President’s House. It has now made its way back to Crown Estate land in Lincolnshire, and is being organically grown by Fraser M Key. The remaining half left in the grounds of Buckingham Palace was destroyed during The War, which makes their rhubarb very special indeed.
The rhubarb is thick and fibrous, so they freeze it to break it down and once thawed, they squeeze it through a cider press. Sugar is added to balance the acidity of the rhubarb and it is then blended with the 89% abv Harrington Dry Gin to bring it to 40%.
Each batch is small, and every single bottle is carefully handcrafted by Warner Edwards, from the filling to the wax seal and label finishing.
