Blenheim Palace Launches Signature Beer Made With its own Natural Spring Water
Happy to announce we have helped Blenheim Palace launch its own limited edition signature beer in time for Christmas made with natural spring water from the Oxfordshire estate. ‘Blenheim Palace’ Signature IPA was created using fresh water collected from aquifers beneath the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
To celebrate its arrival we arranged for it to be delivered to the Palace in a traditional horse-drawn dray.
Head Coachman, Nick Carter said: “We were thrilled to work with Blenheim Palace to help deliver their Signature IPA beer and promote and raise awareness of these fantastic working horses and their very much still relevant role in today’s modern world.” We are only three breweries with working delivering shire horses which have remained on site since 1849.
“We’re delighted to have our very own beer created by the award-winning brewers at Hook Norton,” said Blenheim Palace’s Head of Retail Judy Bentall. “The brewery is just 15 miles from the estate and the fact it’s been made with natural Blenheim spring water makes it a truly local beer. It’s a limited edition which we have launched for Christmas and we’re expecting it to prove popular as a festive tipple,”
The beer’s specific taste and flavour was made with a combination of Challenger, Admiral, and Chinook hops, ‘Blenheim Palace’ has a golden appearance with floral scents and a light citrus taste. The beer will be available to buy online as well as in Blenheim’s shops and restaurants.
Every year the Blenheim estate produces more than four million bottles of mineral water drawn from a subterranean aquifer 40 metres below the surface of the estate and sells it worldwide. Blenheim Palace Natural Mineral Water is part of a centuries old tradition which began in the 12th century when King Henry II built a pleasure pool for his mistress Rosamund Clifford on the estate. The pool was fed by an ancient spring which, legend maintains, has never dried up.
