Graham's selects rare Port to commemorate Royal Wedding
Graham’s has announced the release of a limited bottle of one of its finest Port’s to commemorate the marriage of HRH Prince Henry of Wales and Ms Meghan Markle.
The family has selected the rare 1982 Single Harvest Tawny Port, for its “exceptional quality” and for its proximity to the birth years of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The wine has been maturing in oak barrels for more than three decades.
Just 30 Jeroboams (4.5 litre bottles) and a very limited number of 20cl bottles have been made available, each presented in a commemorative box.
W & J Graham’s was honoured by the grant of The Royal Warrant by Her Majesty the Queen in 2017.
Johnny Symington, joint managing director, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer one of our finest Ports to commemorate the Royal wedding. This follows a tradition of bottling special Ports for significant Royal occasions. We produced a Graham’s 1952 Single Harvest for Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and later a Graham’s 90 Year Old Tawny Port for the Queen’s 90th birthday.”
As a result of the sale of the commemorative Port, the Symington family will be making a donation to two charities – Crisis, a national charity for homeless people, and Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a charity for bereaved Armed Forces - chosen by Prince Harry and Megham Markle.
The Graham’s 1982 commemorative Port will be available from May 14 this year from retailers, such as Harvey Nichols, and select London restaurants.
