    Limited Edition Monty Python's Spamalot HP Sauce bottles went on sale this morning - apparently over 600 had been sold by lunchtime, so if you want to buy
    one then I suggest you get down to Selfridges soon or keep an eye on Ebay (they
    are going for £50+ already!)


    HP Sauce - the nation's favourite brown sauce - is set to celebrate the self-proclaimed "first 1075 years*" of "Monty Python's Spamalot" with an exclusive limited edition bottle.

    Classic brown sauce will come together with cracking British comedy next month
    when 1,075 limited edition HP Spamalot Sauce bottles go on sale in Selfridges' Oxford Street store.

    The bottles feature a unique design inspired by the hit West End show "Monty Python's Spamalot" and are presented in a beautiful blue collector's box each with a numbered certificate of authenticity.

    Selfridges is expecting Monty Python fans will rush to get their hands on the bottles when they go on sale in Selfridges fabulous flagship food hall at 9:30 am on March 10th 2007. HP Spamalot Sauce will cost £6.99 with all proceeds donated to Tommy's, the baby charity.

    Selfridges' food and restaurant director Ewan Venters said: "Selfridges is thrilled to be the exclusive stockist of such an iconic product.

    "We are seeing a resurgence in heritage foods and HP Spamalot Sauce combines a traditional popular brand with hugely admired home-grown comedy."

    HP Sauce marketing manager Paul Harvey said: "For fans of both HP Sauce and Monty Python, these special bottles are certain to be must have collectables."

    "We are delighted that HP Sauce can help "Monty Python's Spamalot" celebrate 1,075 years, and with the support of Selfridges we are able to give every penny
    from the proceeds of the sales to Tommy's, the baby charity."
