A counterfactual project where Britain’s first distillery celebrates 200 years of Mughal reign over the United Kingdom by releasing 200 bottles of its special signature edition in honour of The Nawab.
In 1757 The Nawab of Bengal Siraj-ud-Daulah, killed his commander-in-general Mir Jafar on grounds of treason and defeated Robert Clive at the Battle of Plassey.
Aided by the French, he sailed from India to England at the time of the seven Years’ War. Siraj-ud-Daulah with the French forces led by Doc de Choiseul crossed the channel and overthrew the British army on land at the Battle of the Red Water.
Siraj-ud-Daulah taking over southern England in 1759, marked the beginning of 200 years of glorious Mughal Rule.
