Ludlow Distillery launches a very special gin to mark the Coronation

Ludlow Distillery is the home of Ludlow Gin and Ludlow Whisky, recently opening its doors to the public in its new home at Ludlow Farmshop. Proud royalist and Master Distiller, Shaun Ward, has been working hard creating a new limited-edition gin to mark the Coronation of King Charles III.

The Ludlow Rose Gin was inspired by our involvement as a sponsor for the RHS Malvern Spring Show, and a visit, a few years ago, to the gardens of Highgrove, the private home of HM The King, where Shaun and his husband Peter were lucky enough to be invited by the Head Gardner to visit the wonderful gardens. Speaking of this, Shaun said: “Such experiences are what make life so joyful and enjoying a unique gin should be just the same – a great deal of love goes into creating each one of our own unique recipes. Handcrafting gin with love – there are so many synergies with creating and enjoying gardens.”

Roses are a key feature of the gardens at Highgrove, so sourcing the perfect rose petals to inspire the distillation process at Ludlow Distillery has been key. The finest juniper, coriander, angelica root and orris are harmonised with fragrant floral notes of rose and hibiscus petals, and just a touch of classic lemon. This truly premium handcrafted gin, fit for a King and Queen, is available for pre-order now and will be shipped from 27th April, just in time for a long weekend of celebrations.

Shaun and his team have now opened the doors to Ludlow Distillery and tours open to the public in the coming weeks. This will be your chance to get behind the scenes and discover how these curiously smooth spirits are crafted. Discover how Ludlow Distillery was born, from the humble beginnings of Ludlow Gin, through to the launch of their English single malt whisky. Learn about their production story and sample some of their finest spirits, all made with love. At their Ludlow Distillery shop, you can discover their full range of gins, vodkas, rums, liqueurs, and their English single malt whiskies.
