The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Sparkling Wine Has A Hidden Message

It's hard to have missed the fact that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be celebrating her 70th year of reign this year, making her the first British monarch in history to ever celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. In a celebration befitting of the grand occasion, festivities are planned to take place all through the year with a four-day bank holiday weekend from June 2 to June 5.

"Great British Bake Off" fans will remember that last year, on the Queen's 90th birthday, season six winner Nadiya Hussain was given the honor of baking the Queen's birthday cake (via SBS). The Platinum Jubilee celebrations too have a sweet dessert at its center. The Queen is calling for bakers over the age of eight to compete in a pudding competition overseen by a judging panel that includes none other than former "GBBO" judge Mary Berry!

But that's not all. The Royal Household's Royal Collection Trust (RCT) is also releasing a special edition Platinum Jubilee Sparkling Wine. People can partake in the celebrations with a royal bottle of bubbles that is perfectly befitting of the royal occasion.

The Platinum Jubilee wine is inspired by the Queen's coronation robe

According to The Royal Collection Trust, the Platinum Jubilee Sparkling Wine is a blend of "50% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier" that is made from "fruit grown and hand-picked in vineyards in Kent and West Sussex" using traditional methods of production. With the aroma of white peach, citrus fruit, and sweet spices, the sparkling wine's suggested pairing includes mature English cheddar cheese as well as seafood.

As for the vintage wine's design, the label supposedly carries a hidden message. Inspired by the robe worn by the Queen on her Coronation Day on June 2, 1953, the label carries beautiful golden embroidery. At the center of the label is an EIIR cipher with a crown, surrounded by olive leaves and wheat stalks which, RCT says, "symbolise peace and plenty."

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Sparkling Wine can only be shipped within the U.K. or in Germany, New Zealand, and Australia and costs £39 ($53) for a bottle. The Platinum Jubilee chinaware, however, can be shipped to the U.S. and Canada for a fee of £20 ($27). You might not be able to sip on the royal sparkling wine but a pair of Platinum Jubilee Crystal Champagne Flutes may be the next best thing!
