It is thought the new gin venture will receive the royal approval from the Queen following her own love of the spirit and her own experience selling it.

Special dry gin from the shop at Buckingham Palace costs £40 and is infused with 12 botanicals from the gardens of the Palace including mulberry leaves and lemon verbena.

The Queen Mother was also famed for her love of gin, notably a French cocktail with Dubonnet made with fortified wine.
