In collaboration with the Historic Royal Palaces, Gin In A Tin is proud to announce the launch of The Coronation Tin housing a gin fit for a king. The Coronation Gin comes ahead of the crowning of their majesties King Charles III and Camilla the Queen Consort on 6th May 2023.
His Majesty’s coronation is a historic event taking place at Westminster Abbey in London, where King Charles III will be crowned alongside Camilla, the Queen Consort. He will formally take on the role of the head of the Church of England.
A Mighty Fine Royal Tipple
The joyous occasion will span across the globe, many will watch a new chapter of the history books being written as the Carolean era officially commences as King Charles III is anointed with vegan holy oil. So why not celebrate the momentous occasion by enjoying a tipple or two of The Coronation Gin, a top-notch London Dry Gin In A Iconic Tin?
The Coronation Gin has wonderful distinctive notes of lemon peel, coriander, cardamom and botanicals centred around juniper berries, making for a fresh, fragrant and aromatic glass of gin. Whilst creating the ultimate royal tipple.
It has a versatile yet straightforward body to it, making it perfect to pay homage to classic cocktails such as a martini that has a revered history as well as a citrus flavour, where it is a delicious tipple, served over ice with tonic and garnished with pink grapefruit.
The Elaborate Tin
Besides the gin itself, the stunning tin design has been created in collaboration with the Historic Royal Palaces. Inspired by the jewels housed at the Tower of London. It reflects the rich, royal purple and lavish golds that are found in many crowns. Woven into the design are also symbols from the four nations; the classic English rose, a traditional Scottish thistle, a springtime Welsh daffodil and an Irish shamrock.
The First King In Over 70 Years
On the 6th of May, we will see King Charles III crowned the King of England. The first king for 70 years. He will be the divine head of the church as well as reign over the Commonwealth. We can’t wait to celebrate this significant event, which alongside us, will be viewed by millions, across the globe.
The coronation will focus on two important elements. The first symbolises the divine and religious traditions that the crown holds, and the second is the physical act of placing the St Edward’s crown on a monarch’s head. The crown is the centrepiece of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom, which was named directly after Saint Edward the Confessor. Over the years, versions of it have been traditionally used to crown English and British monarchs, which now includes King Charles III.
Coronations are rooted in thousands of years of history. King Charles III will pay homage to these long-standing traditions, however, Buckingham Palace has said it will also ‘reflect the monarch’s role today and look towards the future. 6th May 2023, marks a new era as King Charles III and Camilla the Queen Consort become the heads of the country and pave their own path.’
Join Us In Raising A Glass To Remember The Great Queen Elizabeth II
During this event, we cannot forget the late Queen Elizabeth II, who was well-known for enjoying a gin cocktail! Reportedly, Queen Elizabeth II preferred an aperitif, which was a classic gin with a splash of Dubonnet and served over ice with a slice of lemon. This cocktail was passed down through the generations from the Queen’s Mother, who was a well-known royal who enjoyed a tipple or two. Her rumoured favourite was also a classic gin cocktail with a splash of Angus Bitters.
Queen Elizabeth II, our beloved monarch, ruled from 6th February 1952, until her passing on 8th September 2022, reigning for 70 years and 214 days. This is not only extraordinary but also the longest reign recorded for a queen, as well as the longest reign of any other British monarch. During her lifetime, she served as queen regent of 32 sovereign nations, and at the time of her passing, she was the ruler of 15 realms.
With the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the coronation of King Charles III is the perfect chance for people around the world to both pay tribute to our late Queen and celebrate the crowning of our new king. With this celebration, the baton passes from ‘God Save The Queen’, to ‘God Save The King’. So, why not raise a glass with a Celebration gin, shout 3 cheers and Hip Hip Hooray to celebrate their Majesty’s coronation.
