Королева Великобритании Елизавета II запустила производство джина на основе растительных пряностей, выращенных на территории поместья Сандрингем на востоке Англии. Об этом сообщает Daily mail.
Напиток получил название Sundringham Celebration Gin.
Бутылка объемом 500 миллилитров продается по цене £50 ($66,6). Приобрести ее можно на сайте поместья с бесплатной доставкой по стране, а после снятия ограничительных мер из-за коронавируса джин также можно будет купить в сувенирной лавке рядом с дворцом.
Напиток крепостью 42°С содержит аромат мирта и хурмы, которые растут на территории усадьбы. На этикетке написано, что «джин обладает насыщенным вкусом с ярко выраженными тонами можжевельника и цитрусовым послевкусием».
Это уже третий джин, выпускаемый британским королевским домом. В июле монаршая семья начала продавать Buckingham Palace Gin, а в начале ноября принц Уэльский Чарльз представил джин Highgrove.
Запуская производство собственной алкогольной продукции, королевская семья стремится восполнить финансовые потери, понесенные из-за пандемии вследствие закрытия для посещения туристами резиденций Елизаветы II, пишет издание.

Sacha Baron Cohen has done his first Australian TV interview since he and his wife, actress Isla Fisher, relocated Down Under with their family.
The 49-year-old British comedian appeared on ABC News Breakfast on Tuesday, and made a point of praising Australia's response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Borat star said that more and more Hollywood productions are choosing to film in Australia because it's a safer country.
'I have to ask you an Australian question seeing as you're married to an Aussie,' began ABC journalist Katherine Tulich.
'Obviously, we're doing great in Australia. There's a lot of people coming to Australia filming. Any thoughts of doing any productions here? Making an Australian character? Or spending more time in Australia? I know there's a rumour out there?'
Sacha then put on an Australian accent and said he had no plans to portray an Australian character just yet.
'I mean, you can't make an Aussie character. There's no comedy, here, mate! I mean, this is a serious country right?' he said.
'I think there's more and more filming coming here because it's safe. You're one of the few countries in the world that really, the politicians stepped aside, whatever you want to think about the politicians, and said, "Okay, let's let the scientists run this show."'
He finished: 'And it's been amazingly effective. I really hope that it continues.'
Sacha and Isla, 44, who was raised in Perth from the age of six, recently relocated from LA to Sydney with their three children.
The pair have taken the major and seemingly permanent step of enrolling their children at a school in Sydney, which happens to be the city where they first met back in 2002.
Until recently, the notoriously private family were living in Los Angeles.
But after filming wrapped on Sacha's latest mockumentary, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, it's unclear if he has any more work in the pipeline in Los Angeles - particularly amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, Isla has always dreamed of bringing up her children in Australia.
She told Marie Claire in 2018: 'I have this secret fantasy of slowing down, moving to Byron Bay, getting off the grid and sitting on the sand with a Vegemite sandwich.'
The Scooby-Doo star added that it 'isn't easy' raising children in LA, saying: 'There's not really a culture of bringing your kids to dinner parties or to restaurants past 6pm.
'I tend to entertain at home because I want to be with my family – it's easier to put your kids to bed and have a wine with friends.'
Chadwick Boseman was hailed by Marvel on the day he would have turned 44 Sunday.
Marvel, on their Twitter page, captioned a clip of the film showcasing Boseman, who played King T’Challa, 'Long live the King. #WakandaForever'
Bob Iger, Disney's Executive Chairman, took to Twitter to inform fans of an expanded homage to the late A-list actor.
He wrote: 'To all fans of #BlackPanther: watch the film on #DisneyPlus late tonight, for a special tribute to someone that was and will always be near and dear to our hearts.'
The montage showed the actor in his stints in Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War, with a quotation from his character, 'In times of crisis, the wise build bridges while the foolish build barriers.'
Boseman is not expected to be seen in the sequel via CGI, Marvel Studios EVP Victoria Alonso told the Argentina news outlet Clarin, earlier this month, The Wrap reported.
'There’s only one Chadwick and he’s not with us ... our king, unfortunately, has died in real life, not just in fiction, and we are taking a little time to see how we return to history and what we do to honor this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible, really,' Alonso said.
She continued: 'Because Chadwick was not only a wonder of a human being every day for the five years that we spent together, but it also seems to me that as a character what he did elevated us as a company and has left his moment in history.
'I know that sometimes two months go by or three months go by in production and you say, "Well, it was a long time,"' Alonso said. 'But it is not a long time. We have to think carefully about what we are going to do and how and think about how we are going to honor the franchise.'
The sequel to the record-setting film, Black Panther 2, is set to arrive in theaters May 6, 2022.
The late actor was hailed by his peers via social media Sunday, as they marked the somber occasion three months after the actor's death.
Lupita Nyong'o wrote, 'Deeply loved, sorely missed,' alongside a shot of herself and the actor, while Mark Ruffalo wrote, 'Thinking of your passion, love, and your light today, @chadwickboseman. Happy Birthday. Wishing we could time travel back to this moment.'
Boseman, also known for his work in movies like 42, Marshall, Get on Up and Draft Day, was diagnosed with stage three cancer in 2016, and underwent 'countless surgeries and chemotherapy' in his battle with the disease, his family said, adding that he 'died in his home, with his wife and family by his side,' adding that 'it was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.'
Last month, his brother Derrick Boseman opened up about the actor's final days to The New York Times, as he said his brother told him, 'Man, I’m in the fourth quarter, and I need you to get me out of the game.'
Derrick said, 'When he told me that, I changed my prayer from, "God heal him, God save him," to "God, let your will be done." And the next day he passed away.'
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has challenged Manchester United to take a step closer to landing his first trophy as manager at Old Trafford, saying: 'These players are desperate to learn how to win.'
United were knocked out at the semi-final stage of both domestic cup competitions last season as well as the Europa League.
As they prepare to face Everton in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup at Goodison Park on Wednesday night, Solskjaer stressed the importance of building a winning mentality.
'Yes, of course it's something we're aiming for,' said the Norwegian who lifted 12 trophies as a player at United.
'We want to improve every season and to improve on last year is to get to the final. Of course, when you get to the final there's only one thing that matters and that's to lift the trophy.
'I remember myself winning my first trophy. Even towards the end of my career, it was Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic's first trophy in the 2006 Carling Cup.
'It does give something to a team. We are desperate to get our hands on a trophy, and these players are desperate to learn how to win.'
Even so, Solskjaer will make changes to protect his players during the busy Christmas period.
Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw are set to miss the game after going off in Sunday's thumping 6-2 win over Leeds, while Solskjaer will consider resting Bruno Fernandes on the bench.
The United boss confirmed that Jesse Lingard will be in the squad having not featured since the win at Brighton in the last round at the end of September.
Edinson Cavani could make his first start in five games after recovering from a groin injury, and Mason Greenwood may also return to the line-up after making way for Dan James against Leeds.
'Jesse will definitely be in the squad,' said Solskjaer. 'He's been working hard in training. He's been unfortunate with having to isolate a few times, being in close contact with Covid but not even having it himself.
'Edinson's been out with an injury for a while so we need to get him going, and Bruno is one that I also have to protect.
'Mason's fit enough to play. He was on the bench (against Leeds) and it just wasn't to be for him to come on. He will be involved in the squad unless something happens in the next couple of days.'
