Flower Gin Has Arrived & It’s Beautiful
With spring now upon us and days starting to resemble summer we’ve discovered the perfect gin to match the weather! A Chelsea-based grocer called Partridges have created Flower Gin, which is made using a mix of 19 botanicals including rose petals, marigold, verbena, cassia bark and juniper, all wrapped up in a beautiful gin bottle!
The release of the gin coincides with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and Partridges’ 45th anniversary year, we don’t know about you but when the summer is upon us or the weather is nice we love nothing more than sitting in a garden or park, sipping on a nice G&T while admiring flowers, nature and the world, so this gin would fit in perfectly with this.
The Grocer has collaborated with a master distiller from Dunnet Bay Distillers which is based in Scotland to produce this unique gin, Partridges itself is the ‘Royal Grocer to her Majesty the Queen’ which links up nicely to the fact that the Chelsea Flower Show is run by the Royal Horticultural Society.
The gin will be available from their flagship store which was founded by Sir Richard Shepherd and first opened its doors on Sloane Street, Chelsea, in May 1972. It is now run by his younger brother John and in 2004 the flagship store was relocated to Duke of York Square, just off the Kings Road. The gin will be available online and from their two central London stores. Shepherd said that “Gin is a quintessential British drink and will be a central piece of the Chelsea Flower jigsaw that promotes all things Chelsea, Partridges and artisan food and drink makers,”
The gin itself is 42.5% alc and is priced at £29.95 for 50cl bottles and for every bottle sold in the first batch they will donate £1 to local charities.
