You can now enjoy the taste of Sandringham in a glass thanks to the Queen, who has recently launched her own Christmas prosecco at the Norfolk estate. Fans of the bubby can get a whiff of the majestic drink for a pricey $20, but considering its sales, it seems worth the price tag!
The ‘extra dry’ vintage prosecco comes in 200ml bottles – which are enough to fill one glass. They’re wrapped in a label featuring a robin, holly, and fir trees and are just the kind of merry you need for the festive season!
As noted by an anonymous Sandringham palace staffer, the prosecco carried ‘a pretty punchy price tag, but it’s been flying off the shelves. Despite being priced at a whopping $20 per bottle, there has clearly been no deterrent in its sales!
Consisting 11% abv, the royal prosecco is specially produced in Italy for the Sandringham estate in Norfolk, which also sells its own Celebration Gin, which is made in a distillery on the estate. The Queen even launched her first beer recently that is made using organic Laureate Spring Barley harvested from her gardens at Sandringham.
The release of the new prosecco comes a day after the Queen was required to cancel her traditional family Christmas at Sandringham palace amid the rising number of COVID cases. She has decided to stay back at Windsor instead.
Well, either way, the prosecco, and its surprising sales are sure to make up for any lost merriment for her highness!
