The Albury Royal, designed in celebration of the Queen's 90th birthday this year, is made by adding Albury Estate Blanc de Blancs to a wild hibiscus flower, with a dash of hibiscus syrup.
Hibiscus flowers come from the foothills of the Blue Mountians in Australia. The beautiful crimson fowers unfurl when added to liquid, and can be eaten when the bubbly has been drunk! They have a delicious rhubarb and raspberry flavour.
With the Queen's 90th birthday next week (and official birthday in June), St Georges Day on 23rd April and English Wine Week starting on the 28th May, we think it's the perfect time to be drinking English fizz!
You can try our cocktail and sample #AGlassofAlbury at the vineyard on Saturdays - we are open between 11am and 4pm and have a lovely patio area with beautiful views of the vineyard. Children, dogs and muddy boots welcome!
