Must-Haves for your Jubilee Weekend Spread
AUTHOR LOUISE AVERY / PUBLISHED: MAY-2022
This year from the 2nd to the 6th of June 2022, the U.K. will celebrate 70 years of Queen Elizabeth II's reign. Blessed with a 4 day bank holiday, we expect the nation to be buzzing with picnics, street parties & garden feasts.
Here we have compiled our favourite British must-haves for your Jubilee outdoor occasions. Our shortlist includes sustainable & small British businesses worth supporting this Summer.
As Spring turns to Summer, we're sure that the Jubilee weekend will be a sea of refreshing spritzes. And we'll happily be swimming in it.
Our favourite version of the beloved Aperol Spritz is non-alcoholic and uses the delicious Wilfred's spirit. Wilfred's is a carefully crafted blend of distilled & extracted natural botanicals. The zesty bitter orange, aromatic rosemary and rhubarb blends beautifully with our light & floral Citrus Hops. All the spritz, without the alcohol.
1. Simply add 1 part Wilfred's to a glass & top with 2 parts Citrus Hops.
2. Garnish with a slice of fresh orange. Enjoy!
2. PICK YOUR PICNIC
Melrose & Morgan
For alfresco celebrations & picnics, our friends at Melrose & Morgan offer a tailored-by-you selection of picnic items delivered to your door in a branded picnic tote bag together with disposable eco cutlery.
If you pop into one of their delis, be sure to grab yourself one of our drinks, too.
3. DIPS & SAUCES
It's not a feast without really good condiments. Our friends at LEON make vibrant & healthy veggie dips & sauces to accompany your Jubilee BBQs or picnics.
LEON works to create food that is better for you & the planet, and they have recently announced that their condiments are carbon neutral.
4. JAMS & PRESERVES
by Single Variety Co
We think a celebration is in order to thank Single Variety Co for the service they provide in making what we believe are the best tasting fruit preserves out there. All made using single variety fruit, we love their 100% British preserves for the Jubilee Weekend.
5. A FLORAL TOUCH
Grace & Thorn
Jubilee Weekend street parties & picnics require royal table decorations. Our favourite Hackney florist creates beautiful seasonal floral displays for your Jubilee table that will ensure your party looks & smells like Summer. No two bouquets are the same & can come with or without our favourite pickle jar vase.

6. NON-ALCOHOLIC FIZZ
Soft fruits & a hint of hops. Our new Sparkling English Blush adds a sparkle to moments where you may not be drinking, or as a spacer between tipples.
Like all our drinks, the Blush is made using our natural fermentation process to create complex, exciting & elevated non-alcoholic drinks. Serve straight-up or mixed, perfect for sparkling celebrations & everyday drinking.
