On New Years eve 2023 the much loved queen of Denmark Margrethe 2nd announced, that she would abdicate and leave the throne to the Crown Prince Frederik, hence Frederik the 10th. It hasn’t happened in 900 years that a monarch of Denmark voluntarily steps down, and everyone is still a bit in shock. But he is a great man, with a lovely wife and some quite reasonable kids, and we are very happy to see him ascend.

Coronation no.10

The Coronation cocktail was allegedly made in 1902 for the coronation of Edward the 7th of England. We don’t know by whom though. It appears first in The Savoy Cocktail Book from 1930, and then again in 1935 in The Waldorf-Astoria bar book, so it seems to have been a quite popular high society tipple then. But it falls out of fashion during the war, and goes the way of the condor.

The original Coronation no.1 is made with 1 part Dry Vermouth and two parts Fino Sherry, accentuated by dashes of orange bitters and Maraschino Liqueur. Combining tradition with innovation, recklessness with care, we are happy to share it with you. The Angelica that gives our gin its name is abundant in Greenland where King Frederik the 10th served in the Sirius patrol.
