A blue-rinsed riff on the Tarling's 1933 competition winning Red Lion, created with the hope of celebrating another English competition win. There is one orange-flavoured liqueur for each of the three lions.
Created in July 2021 by yours truly and named after the emblem of the England football team, worn on the player's shirts since the first international against Scotland in 1872.
As well as the three lions, England's team logo depicts ten rosettes symbolising the rose of Lancaster which is the official emblem of England, and fortuitously the English Football Association also resides at London's Lancaster Gate. There are ten rosettes to represent the ten regions with a seat on the FA Council.
The three lions emblem derives from the Royal Arms of England which originated with Richard I (1189–1199), the first of the Plantagenet kings who ruled from 1154. Better known as King Richard the Lionheart, the three lions represented his three positions as King of England, Duke of Normandy, and Duke of Aquitaine. The three lions appeared on the Royal Arms of every succeeding monarch.
One serving of Three Lions (on the shirt) contains 154 calories.
