Nelson’s Gold, a brand new spirit drink from Norfolk’s Wild Knight English Vodka, was launched today (March 20) at the Maids Head Hotel in Tombland, Norwich.
 
The new spirit drink combines Wild Knight English Vodka and caramelised East Anglian sugar beet. It takes its name from the story behind the predecessor of Horatio Nelson’s HMS Victory, which was sunk in 1700 containing around £500m worth of gold coins.
Adam Youngman, Restaurant and Bar Manager at the Maids Head has devised a cocktail to celebrate the launch of Nelson’s Gold.
 
Nelson’s Golden Apple is now on sale in the historic Maids Head bar, where it is believed that Horatio Nelson imbibed his first alcoholic drink. The cocktail combines Nelson’s Gold, fresh apple juice and cinnamon syrup, shaken and served in a chilled martini glass and garnished with apple.  
 
Matt brown, co-founder of Wild Knight Vodka said : “We were really pleased to launch Nelson’s Gold at the Maids Head. The hotel was our first customer last year, when we produced our Wild Knight Vodka and it was great to come back today with our new spirit drink to a historic bar, with links to Horatio Nelson.”
