Queen Elizabeth Wants You To Toast Her Long Reign With New Royal Booze

Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom with a Platinum Jubilee full of events that will take place throughout 2022. As the longest-reigning British monarch, Her Majesty will commemorate her legacy with community events, public appearances, classic British fare, and a special edition Platinum Jubilee English Sparkling Wine.

According to The Royal Household, February 6 marked the anniversary of the Queen's coronation, and although events will take place throughout the year, the official celebration will happen over a designated holiday weekend from June 2 to 5. A historic reign deserves a monumental celebration, and events include tree planting, concerts, a parade, a baking competition, and a Big Jubilee Lunch, among many others.

Those who wish to toast the Queen in royal fashion can raise a glass of the new Platinum Jubilee Special Edition English Sparkling Wine made with choice fruit from vineyards in West Sussex and Kent. The royal bubbly is made with a blend of Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir, with a label fashioned after the Queen's embroidered Robe of Estate worn on her coronation day in 1953.

Her Majesty is selling more than just wine

Queen Elizabeth is the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, and the Royal Family is going all out for this historic event. Revelers looking for a libation to pair with their fish and chips or to wash down that plum pudding can order the Platinum Jubilee English Sparkling Wine and raise a glass to the Her Majesty's reign.

In addition to the sparkling wine, the Royal Household is selling crystal champagne flutes, chocolates, biscuits, and more to commemorate this royal milestone. Of course, nothing says celebration like a glass of bubbly. The Platinum Jubilee Sparkling Wine is said to have "enticing aromas of rich and honeyed citrus fruit, white peach, and hints of sweet spices." Crisp fruit notes precede its smooth finish with warm, nutty undertones. Suggested pairings include delicate seafood like British langoustines and aged English cheddar.

If you count yourself among those celebrating this royal milestone, we have some potentially unfortunate news. The new sparkling wine is available now, but can only be delivered to residencies in the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand.
