Beyond the seven crowns, this bottle, created especially for the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, is also adorned by “Jubilee ribbon” and golden bubbles.

A royal and political history

As the first producer in England to make sparkling wine – and thereby kicking off a whole new industry, it is only fitting for Nyetimber to honour the Queen in this fashion. Nyetimber also points out its “long association with the royal family: the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were served Nyetimber at the British Embassy in Paris in 2017 to mark the launch of the brand becoming an official partner to the embassy. Nyetimber was also served on board The Queen’s Royal Barge during the Diamond Jubilee celebrations in London in 2012 as well as to Presidents Obama and Trump on state visits to the UK, while Nyetimber’s demi-sec Cuvée Chérie was served at last year's G7 Summit in Cornwall.

Raising a glass

The CEO and owner of Nyetimber, Eric Heerema said, “I’m delighted to be launching such a beautiful bottle to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This unique bottle will make a perfectly British addition to celebrations over the Jubilee weekend, and I look forward to joining you in raising a glass to Her Majesty the Queen.” The special edition bottle will be available on the Nyetimber website from May 3 for £37.50/$47.12.
