The Royal Wedding – Celebrate with British Polo Gin

British Polo Gin Royal Wedding

Ahh, who doesn’t love a Royal Wedding? True, it would have been nice to get a Bank Holiday out of it, but it’s still a good excuse for a celebration. And here at Taste, we like a bit of posh now and again. And in the world of gin, it doesn’t get much posher than British Polo Gin.

With the Royal Wedding happening this weekend, what better time to highlight one of our favourite gins, that is available as the excellent original and now as a sloe gin.

What Makes British Polo Gin Special?

Not only is it stocked in all the best Polo venues in the UK, it is also all organic. The quality of this gin shines through, and in his own words, Richard Hine, the creator of British Polo Gin says, “there was a gap in the market for a premium gin that was easy to drink”. He goes on to say, “The gin had to be smooth enough to be drunk on the rocks, but still retaining the classic gin flavour which is crucial to allow it to cut through tonic. It was important for us to do this because this allows the gin to be very versatile to both the end consumer and also to bars.”

The Recommended Serve – The Chukka Cocktail

As an alternative to Pimms (the old traditional drink of choice at a Royal Wedding), try this new British summertime cocktail fashioned around old style lemonade. To make the Chukka Cocktail mix 2 parts British Polo Gin with 2 parts lemon juice, 1 part sugar syrup and top with soda water. Garnish with fresh mint and strawberries.

The British Life

Imagine the scene; Prince Harry is riding around playing polo and the beautiful soon-to-be Princess Meghan is looking glam at the side with a glass in hand. Most likely it would be a glass of British Polo Gin and Tonic!

With this in mind, we agree with Richard, in that gin and polo are inherently linked, and both are essentially British. So when you are enjoying the most British of weddings this weekend, why not reach for a British Polo Gin and make yourself a Chukka Cocktail?
