Prince Charles Enjoys a Martini At 11 AM At Local English Distillery

It's 5 o'clock somewhere, right? The Prince of Wales certainly agrees!

Prince Charles kicked off the second day of his Northumberland visit in style sipping a martini as he toured a Moorland gin distillery in North East England.

The 69-year-old royal was served his gin neat shortly after 11 am and was then handed a new cocktail by Sir Walter Riddell's estate in Hepple, Coquetdale, Northumberland.

The father of Prince William and Prince Harry stepped out in the early Autumn showers to plant a juniper bush before gin tasting at the distillery with Sir Walter Riddell, Lady Riddell, and the Duchess of Northumberland.
