Blenheim Palace is launching its own signature gin in time for Christmas using botanicals grown on the Oxfordshire estate.
Described as ‘elegant and stylish’, the Blenheim Palace Signature London Dry Gin has been created in partnership with the prestigious Sky Wave Gin distillery in Bicester, shortlisted for Distillery of the Year 2021 at the World Gin Awards.
It features lavender and rosemary picked from the UNESCO World Heritage Site’s walled gardens, alongside Blenheim orange apples from its orchards.
Blenheim natural mineral water is also used in the distilling process to give the gin its distinctive smooth taste.
The recipe is the inspiration of Andrew Parsons, Sky Wave Gin’s Master Distiller, who created the World’s Best Contemporary Gin. He believes Blenheim’s most famous son, Sir Winston Churchill, would approve of the new spirit.
