The tipple embodies the British Summertime

The countdown to the Queen’s platinum jubilee is officially on. Taking place between 2-5 June, the bank holiday weekend will mark 70 years of Her Majesty on the throne, meaning there is much cause for celebration.

As always, M&S is making sure our drinks cabinet is well-stocked for the festivities by launching a brand new Jubilee-themed gin liqueur.

While many of us will be commemorating the occasion with merchandise and memorabilia, others will be celebrating with parties and picnics – with M&S’s new tipple hitting shelves just in time for bank holiday fun.

Following the runaway success of its sell-out Christmas gin globes, the Jubilee liqueur comes bottled in a similarly decorated globe, adorned with red, white and blue bunting.

Costing £16, the tipple embodies the British Summertime with its strawberry flavoured base and notes of juniper. Here’s how to pick up a bottle in time for the jubilee.
