Royal Beer Released to Celebrate Harry & Meghan

Windsor and Eton Brewery have today released details of their new beer to celebrate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tying the knot at their wedding on the 19th of May in Windsor Castle.

Called HARRY & MEGHAN’S WINDSOR KNOT, the new beer is a special limited edition of the best-selling WINDSOR KNOT which was first brewed for the marriage of Harry’s brother, Will. Just like the original WINDSOR KNOT this Pale Ale will be the only royal wedding beer brewed in Windsor.

The new beer was inspired by the couple’s first public appearance together at the Invictus Games in Toronto last year.

Master Brewer and Co-Founder Paddy Johnson explains:

“We’ve really had a lot of fun developing this new beer. We wanted to create a beer that captured something of that first appearance. We use a special blend of British hops called Invicta in recognition of Prince Harry’s role in creating the Invictus Games, combined with some great American West Coast hops. As with all our beers, we use barley grown locally on the Royal Farms right here in Windsor and as a finishing touch we are using champagne yeast. Marrying these ingredients creates a new Pale Ale that is young, fresh and full of character.”

HARRY & MEGHAN’S WINDSOR KNOT will be available in both 330ml bottles at 4.5% ABV and in cask at 4% ABV. The design on the bottle and pumpclip features a tie made out of the Union Jack and the Star & Stripes, and also has two interlocking male and female symbols.

Co-Founder Will Calvert talks more about the design:

“When Harry & Meghan tie the knot it will be very much a modern marriage of equals as well as being a celebration of their British and American nationalities. Each of them have causes that they care deeply about such as the environment, equal rights and the rehabilitation of injured servicemen and women. We chose the interlocking symbols to reflect the strength and support they give each other.”

HARRY & MEGHAN’S WINDSOR KNOT can be pre-ordered from today by emailing [email protected] or calling 01753 854075. The trade launch is taking place at the Royal Farm Shop in Windsor w/c 26th March with first orders being shipped on Tuesday 3rd April.
