Prince Charles launches a gin with herbs picked from his garden

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry have ‘squandered tremendous opportunity’ to do good as royals, author claims

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry have ‘squandered tremendous opportunity’ to do good as royals, Lady Colin Campbell claims. The author recently penned a book titled ‘Meghan and Harry: The Real Story’ where royal sources come forward to discuss the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The release came before the bombshell tell-all ‘Finding Freedom.’ Lady Colin Campbell is connected to British royalty through ancestry and marriage. She has written several books on the British royal family, including the bestselling ‘The Real Diana’ about Harry’s mother Princess Diana of Wales.

The Prince of Wales teamed up with Oxford Artisan Distillery for the 40 proof gin, made with a hint of lavender, sage and thyme harvested from his flower beds, according to master distiller Cory Mason,who spoke with the Daily Mail. 

The recipe for the botanical gin reportedly took months to develop, and Prince Charles personally taste-tested the quintessentially British spirit, which the distillery recommends using in a gin and tonic cocktail.

“It is traditional, elegant, refined, but with complex herbal notes of a traditional English garden,” Mason told the Daily Mail.

Imbibers looking to give the gin a shot can get it shipped directly from Highgrove House, with bottles costing around $47 USD. Proceeds for the royal spirit will go to Prince Charles’ Charitable Fund, which backs charities focused on education and social inclusion, among others.
