CAMILLA is making booze part of her core business — providing apples to be turned into cider.

Fruit from trees owned by the Duchess of Cornwall are in a new royal scrumpy.

Camilla has gone into the cider making business – after she provided apples from her home to make Highgrove’s new organic cider
Highgrove’s new organic cider costs £2.95 per bottle and will cost £7.95 to deliver or £8.95 for next day delivery

The “beautifully balanced” Highgrove Organic Cider is made from British apples, including varieties from Camilla’s Ray Mill Estate in Wiltshire.

The blurb on a website for Highgrove — her husband Prince Charles’ home in Gloucestershire — says: “These apples are hand-picked, farm-pressed and slowly matured to make this tasty cider — best enjoyed chilled on a warm summer’s evening.”

The 5.4 per cent proof cider costs £2.95 for a 27cl bottle, right, plus £7.95 delivery charge.

But it cannot be exported to the EU “due to further regulatory changes”.

The tipple comes after the Royal Collection Trust launched a London dry gin in 2020 made from 12 botanical ingredients from Buckingham Palace garden, which can be bought at palaces across the UK.

However Camilla’s 95-year-old mother-in-law is unlikely to be sampling either drink.

Last year the Queen made a “personal decision” to give up alcohol after speaking to her ­doctors.

She was said to have enjoyed a gin and Dubonnet at lunchtime and a gin and vermouth cocktail before dinner.
