Partridges releases anniversary Chelsea Flower gin

Chelsea-based grocer Partridges, which has held a Royal Warrant since 1994, has released a Chelsea Flower Gin to coincide with this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show and mark its 45th year.

Partridges’ Chelsea Flower Gin has been crafted in collaboration with master distiller Martin Murray of Dunnet Bay Distillers in the north coast of Scotland, which also produces Rock Rose Gin and Holy Grass Vodka.

The expression contains 19 botanicals including rose root, rose water and juniper, to commemorate the historic association between flower nurseries and the Kings Road in Chelsea, home of Partridges’ flagship store.

Partridges was founded by Sir Richard Shepherd on Sloane Street, Chelsea, in May 1972, with a second Partridges opening in 1998 on Gloucester Road, West London.

In 1994 the shop was granted a Royal Warrant as ‘Grocers to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’ and in 2008 John Shepherd, the managing director of Partridges, became President of the Royal Warrant Holders Association.

“Gin is a quintessential British drink and will be a central piece of the Chelsea Flower jigsaw that promotes all things Chelsea, Partridges and artisan food and drink makers,” said Shepherd on releasing a gin to mark its 45th year.

In 2004 Partridges in Chelsea relocated to Duke of York Square, where the shop now includes a wine bar and café with a terrace and indoor seating.

Partridges’ Chelsea Flower Gin, bottled at 42.5% abv, will be available in a 50cl bottle for £29.95 or a 5cl bottle for £3.99. There will also be a gin and tonic premix in a 275ml bottle for £3.99. £1 from the sale of each bottle from the first batch released will be donated to local charities.
