PAR­TRIDGES, The Queen’s gro­cer, cel­e­brates its 45th an­niver­sary this year with its first spirit, the Chelsea Flower Gin. Cre­ated by the fam­ily-run Royal War­rant holder in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Dun­net Bay Dis­tillers in Caith­ness, it fea­tures 19 botan­i­cals, in­clud­ing rose root and rose­wa­ter. The sub­tle flo­ral note is a nod to the his­toric nurs­eries of Chelsea, where Par­tridges’ flag­ship store is lo­cated on Duke of York Square.

The first lim­ited edi­tion of Chelsea Flower Gin is now for sale, in Par­tridges’ two Lon­don stores (the other is on Glouces­ter Road) and on­line (www.par­tridges.—£1 from each bot­tle in the first batch will be do­nated to lo­cal good causes. Each bot­tle is hand-filled and sealed with wax. Par­tridges was founded by re­tired Tory MP Sir Richard Shep­herd in 1972.
