Britain's royal family has begun selling dry gin infused with lemon, verbena, hawthorn berries and mulberry leaves collected Queen Elizabeth II's gardens at Buckingham Palace. The "small batch" gin is on offer for 40 pounds ($50) a bottle from the Royal Collection Shop, but only for delivery in the United Kingdom.

"Hand-picked botanicals from Buckingham Palace's exceptional garden have been combined to create this unique and flavorsome gin," the bottle says besides a picture of the queen's London palace. "For the perfect summer thirst-quencher, the recommended serving method is to pour a measure of the gin into an ice-filled short tumbler before topping up with tonic and garnishing with a slice of lemon," the site says.

Elizabeth's favorite tipple is a gin and Dubonnet, though she drinks in moderation.
