The Queen of England Has Her Own Ketchup Now, and We Can’t Wait to Try It
In an exclusive, The US Sun reported that each of the sauces retail for £6.99 ($9.49) per 295-gram (10.4-ounce) bottle, which is fairly steep compared to their mainstream rivals of HP (a brown sauce from the U.K.) and Heinz Tomato Ketchup. Since it’s a sauce fit for a literal queen, though, we can’t say we’re terribly surprised.
These Royal Estate condiments are made at the Queen’s country house in Sandringham, Norfolk with the new ketchup — Sandringham’s Tomato Sauce — including ingredients like dates, apple juice, and spices. Like traditional ketchup, the tomato sauce is meant to be enjoyed on all sorts of foods throughout the day. Sandringham’s Brown Sauce, however, is made with vinegar and a variety of delicious spices.
While the condiments have yet to make their appearance on the Sandringham Royal Estate online shop, you’ll find other food and drink products with the royal stamp of approval. This includes a London dry gin distilled in a barn at Sandringham Royal Estate, locally produced beer made using barley harvested at the estate, and honey sourced from bee hives around the estate.
And, if you’re very into everything royal-related, don’t forget you have until February 4 to enter the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee baking contest to win a chance at your recipe becoming Britain’s newest dessert staple. May the odds forever be in your favor!
