Queen Elizabeth has become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. To celebrate the anniversary this year, Buckingham Palace is launching its own English sparkling wine with the Royal Collection Trust (RCT), a charitable arm of the Royal Household.

The wine is made from hand-picked fruit grown on vineyards in Kent and West Sussex. "Gold in colour, it has enticing aromas of rich and honeyed citrus fruit, white peach and hints of sweet spices," the RCT says.

The bottle features a design inspired by Queen Elizabeth's Robe of Estate worn during her coronation on June 2, 1953 at Westminster Abbey, London, and the "EIIR cypher is surrounded by golden olive leaves and ears of wheat to symbolise peace and plenty."

In addition to the special sparkling wine, people can also purchase British hand-cut Champagne flute glasses. The glasses are engraved with an emblem depicting the national flowers of the United Kingdom, and each pair is presented in a luxurious satin-lined gift box.
