If it is possible to wrap a Union Jack around it someone has branded it a special ‘Jubilee’ product. Good luck if you are a collector for there are hundreds – special edition malts at hundreds of pounds, Jubilee Hampers and Union Jack encased chocolates. Who would have thought a tin of digestives could be so attractive and made ‘Jubilee’ with the addition of a ‘God Save the Queen’ musical box; Fortnums have one in the shape of their Jubilee Musical Biscuit Tin

And it is also ripe for our vibrant beer producers to bring out summer specials – Cornish Brewer Skinner’s have their Royal Wave (complete with a tacky corgi and queenie atop a surf board) and Wadworth have released a small batch beer (1,200 bottles) of a uninspiringly named Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Ale.

Brewed ‘by hand’ at the Freeminer Brewery in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire two beers have hit the shelves of the Co-op – the aptly named ‘Jubilation’ and ‘Salutation’.

“Jubilation (4%) is a pale, golden-coloured beer made with malt from Warminster and Baramling Cross hops from Worcester to create a refreshing taste with a distinctively hopped finish. Salutation (4.5%) is a classic British bitter with the addition of two historic hop varieties, Goldings and Fuggles, creating a darkly-delicious beer with a satisfying bitterness”

Kate Jones, who is grandly titled as the Co-operative group’s “Head of Product Development and Farms” said

“The new Jubilation and Salutation real ales are quintessentially British and we ‘hopped’ at the chance to commemorate the Jubilee celebrations with these new beers”

The Co-operative Jubilation Ale and Salutation Ale are both available for £1.69.
