Craft distillery Harrogate Tipple recently announced the release of the officially licensed Downton Abbey-inspired spirits. The collection will include a Downton Abbey Gin and Blended Whisky and will be available in limited batches across the United Kingdom and the United States.
“We are the only distillery in the fictional Downtown Abbey region, and we also have an ethos of super-local provenance and a ‘quality-first’ approach to distilling that Tom’s half a century of experience brings to all our products," stated Steven Green, founder of Harrogate Tipple. The gin will be made using traditional ginger, lime, and rose water while the whiskey will be made using flowers from the Victorian hothouse of the 750-year-old Ripley Castle estate.
These limited-edition spirits are perfect for fans of the series looking for well-crafted liquor.
