Ludlow Distillery, the home of Ludlow Gin and Ludlow Whisky, has created a new limited-edition gin to mark the Coronation.
Proud royalist and Master Distiller, Shaun Ward, has been working on creating the new gin to mark the Coronation of King Charles III next month.
The Ludlow Rose Gin was inspired by the distillery’s involvement as a sponsor for the RHS Malvern Spring Show, and a visit, a few years ago, to the gardens of Highgrove, the private home of HM The King, where Shaun and his husband Peter were lucky enough to be invited by the Head Gardner to visit the wonderful gardens.
Speaking of this, Shaun said: “Such experiences are what make life so joyful and enjoying a unique gin should be just the same – a great deal of love goes into creating each one of our own unique recipes. Handcrafting gin with love – there are so many synergies with creating and enjoying gardens.”
Roses are a key feature of the gardens at Highgrove, so sourcing the perfect rose petals to inspire the distillation process at Ludlow Distillery has been key. The finest juniper, coriander, angelica root and orris are harmonised with fragrant floral notes of rose and hibiscus petals, and just a touch of classic lemon.
The handcrafted gin, fit for a King and Queen, is available for pre-order now and will be shipped from 27th April, just in time for a long weekend of celebrations.
