To celebrate the Queen’s diamond Jubilee, 300 year old vintners to the Queen, Berry Bros & Rudd are selling a premium Graham’s 1952 port.
Berry Bros & Rudd, fine wine and sprit merchants since 1698, have been supplying the Royal household with their drinks since the reign of George III. Their first Royal warrant was awarded in 1903 by King Edward VII and today it holds two Royal warrants for H&M The Queen and H.R.H The Prince of Wales so it is rather fitting that they release a commemorative drink, sanctioned by the Palace, to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.
The premium port in question was infact created in 1952, the year of the Queen’s succession and has been stored in oak casts for the past 60 years for a fantastic flavour. This really is an exclusive product- at £275 a bottle and limited edition, this is a quintessentially British way to raise a glass over the summer and toast 60 years to the Queen’s reign.
Simon Berry, Chairman of Berry Bros. & Rudd, says: “It is a year to showcase Britain with the Diamond Jubilee as well as the London Olympic and Paralympic games. The 2012 London Olympics is the largest sporting event ever staged in Britain. In a year when the world’s eyes will be on Britain we will be offering a truly unique and rare old wine for the celebrations.”
There is only a very limited amount of this wine available and it will be supplied in individually numbered bottles. Each bottle is presented in an individual gift box. A special pack of three bottles is also available, this three bottle pack is presented in a hand crafted oak box specially to commemorate Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee.
The Port is available from Berry Bros. & Rudd priced £275 per single bottle, £795 for three bottles presented in a hand-crafted wooden box and £1,800 for a Jeroboam (4.5 litres) from www.bbr.com and 0800 280 2440.
