Sandringham Apple Juice 75cl
History of Sandringham Apple Juice
The Sandringham estate covers some 20,000 acres, much of which is farmland.
During the second world war an extra 500 acres was ploughed to help with the war effort while George VI was king. It was King George who planted the first very apple trees at Sandringham and the royal commitment to the farm has continued ever since.
The orchards were planted in 1953, the year of Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation and they haven’t changed since. As well as filling the royal fruit bowl, the apples find there way onto the supermarket shelves in the form of apple juice.
Today, around 140,000 bottles of Sandringham Apple Juice are produced and distributed every year including to the royal garden parties at Buckingham Palace and Holyrood Palace in Scotland as well as the farm shops at Windsor and the Spaghetti House restaurants in London.
