The Duchess of Rutland has launched a range of upmarket soft drinks.

The Botanicals sparkling juice drinks are made by mineral water company Radnor Hills, which is directed by the Duchess's brother, William Watkins.

Available in flavours including elderflower & rose and raspberry & lavender (rsp: £2.20 for 750ml), talks with retailers are ongoing.

The Duchess said the packaging of the "quintessentially British" drinks was inspired by a bottle of claret taken aboard HMS Resolution by an ancestor in the 18th century.
