The rich history of the Belvoir Estate has been the inspiration for the launch of a new handcrafted gin.

Belvoir Gin has been created by Brentingby Distillery, near Melton, and aims to reflect the history of the Castle.

Emma, Duchess of Rutland, said: “We’re thrilled with the wonderful Belvoir Gin created for us.

“We’re also delighted to be working with a high end artisan producer just a stone’s throw from our door.

“They’ve done a fantastic job of taking our brief and turning it into a wonderful gin fit for royalty.”

She said Brentingby’s master distiller Tom Nichol and founder Bruce Midgley had created a fine dry gin which marries juniper, coriander and angelica with fig, vanilla and chamomile.

Mr Midgley said: “Creating a gin with subtle differences and unique botanicals to represent the regal brief has been a test, but after long hours of careful consideration, a real Juniper forward crisp clean gin has arrived.”

The gin is priced at £39.99 for each embellished bottle with the distinctive Castle turrets shown in silhouette through the bottle.

The new creation is being sold in the Duchess’s Gallery in the estate’s artisan £2.4 million shopping village The Engine Yard.
