Raise a toast to Queen Elizabeth II with these Jubilee gins


Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, celebrates 70 years on the throne in 2022. Gin is said to be one of Her Majesty’s favourite tipples, so it is fitting that gin distillers are participat­ing in her Platinum Jubilee celebratio­ns, which are taking place between 2 and 5 June. Here are a few special releases to look out for:

Cotswolds Platinum Jubilee Gin is inspired by classic English summer desserts and includes strawberry, raspberry and pink peppercorn­s. The dark glass bottle is adorned with a label coloured in purple – a traditiona­l colour of the monarchy – and silver. Tasting notes from the distillery say the gin has notes of jammy red fruit, juniper, fresh grapefruit, pink pepper, and vanilla. It is available to purchase from May from Majestic Wine, with a recommende­d price of £34.95 per bottle.

Silent Pool Distillers is releasing a bespoke “platinum” edition of its flagship gin. In the first-ever redesign of its bottle, Silent Pool has replaced its trademark intricate copper pattern with platinum detailing. Only 5,000 bottles of the platinum edition will be released, retailing at £45.

Whitley Neill Jubilee Gin is a limited-edition bottle of the brand’s London Dry Gin that has been wrapped in a Union Flag design in a nod to its British heritage. After moving into the City of London Distillery in 2021, Whitley Neill now has a sought-after home address in the capital’s Square Mile – just two miles from Buckingham Palace. The Jubilee Gin is available from £26 at The Drop Store, Harvey Nichols, and major supermarke­ts.
