Highclere Castle Celebrates the Centennial Anniversary of King Tut’s Tomb:
To commemorate this year’s 100th anniversary of the discovery of the tomb of King Tutankhamun by Howard Carter and the 5th Earl of Carnarvon, Highclere Castle Spirits is releasing a limited edition, barrel-aged Highclere Castle Gin to be released for the holiday season of 2022. Lord Carnarvon left Highclere Castle for Egypt in 1907 and famously discovered King Tut’s Tomb in 1922.
Launching on Black Friday, with a limited supply of 2,000 cases produced, pre-sale orders will be available for a limited time at www.HighclereCastleGin.com starting October 3rd, 2022, at $99 per bottle. Bottles will be available to purchase starting on Black Friday, November 25th, 2022. The limited-edition barrel-aged gin will never be released again.
This limited edition of Highclere Castle Gin is made with botanicals grown on Highclere Castle’s Estate and barrel aged in French Armagnac casks, Scotch, and American whiskey barrels with notes of honey, smoke, and citrus. The gin embodies the spirit of Ancient Egypt and Lord Carnarvon’s greatest adventure.
Earlier this year, Highclere Castle Gin founders also launched the Highclere Castle “Senetjer Cigar” with Foundation Cigar Company, to expand the award-winning the Highclere Castle cigar line and commemorate this historic anniversary. The 5th Earl of Carnarvon was a proud enthusiast of fine cigars and gin. The cigar will begin shipping this fall and has already received excellent acclaim from the industry.
Highclere Castle has played many important roles in global history and is now recognized by 250 million fans around the world as the “Real Downton Abbey” from the Emmy award-winning TV series and motion pictures.
