Buckingham Palace has announced that the 95-year-old monarch has approved the sale of a range of beers prepared from plants grown on her Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
The beer is sold at the Sandringham souvenir shop for $ 5.50 for a 500ml bottle, and has two varieties: cold-filtered, traditional English “bitter” and stronger golden IPA which the souvenir shop describes as “uniquely natural”.
Produced locally from Barsham Brewery in Norfolk, using organic Laureate Spring barley grown on Sandringham farmland, the bottles have a Sandringham label with pictures of hare and pheasant.
The Sandringham Estate is a wildlife haven for Pheasants, Hares, Owls and many other species thrive in the wood and farmland habitats.
"Made in the UK for the Sandringham estate," the label states. "The Sandringham Estate is a wildlife haven for Pheasants, Hares, Owls and many other species thrive in the wood and farmland habitats."
This is not the first time the Queen has turned to alcohol production. Sandringham’s souvenir shop already sells its own Celebration Gin, which is produced at the estate’s distillery.
