A new gin made with British rose petals and strawberries has been added to the line-up from Palmers, made at Langley Distillery in the Midlands.
Traditionally distilled with English wheat spirit, Palmers Celebration Gin is fruity and floral with a light sweetness. It was originally produced to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
It is the third gin to join the Palmers line up. The Palmer family has been distilling spirits for six generations, and gin since 1920, on behalf of other companies but launched their own brand last July, Palmers London Dry Gin. This has since been joined by Palmers Distillers Cut.
Natalie Wallis, sixth generation of the family distillers, said: “We launched Palmers London Dry Gin last year to celebrate 200 years and six generations in the business. Palmers has been really popular and we have expanded the family with two additional products over the last 12 months.
“The latest, our Celebration Gin, was inspired by this year’s royal wedding and is perfect for celebrations over the summer months. Try it as a Strawberry Collins, my personal favourite, as it really enhances the sweetness of the strawberries.”
Palmers London Dry Gin is produced in the family’s copper pot still named Angela, which was built in 1903, and is distilled following traditional gin distillation methods.
Palmers Distillers Cut is a one-shot blend of 15 botanicals that have infused overnight to produce a gin with fresh and floral crispness with a subtle and smooth lingering finish.
All three gins will be available at Langley Distillery’s English garden-themed stand at the Imbibe Live show at Olympia in London on July 2 and 3.
