We launched our Artisan Gin Tasting Cruise back in 2017, becoming nationwide news, as the world’s first of its kind.
Come aboard our vintage motor yacht to sample from a range of over 20 artisan gins and enjoy delicious canapés.
This Award Winning event has limited spaces and two tickets types available.

We have 4 VIP tables available at £250 per table, in our lounge to seat up to 6 guests per table.

Each VIP table will have a 700ml bottle of Artisan Gin, 12 Mixers and 12 x VIP Gin Tokens waiting for you.

Crack open your bottle and pour your first gin of the evening whilst you peruse our cocktail menu.

Our Guest Distiller will introduce you to their artisan gin, give you a mini-masterclass, their backstory, botanicals they use and discuss any other gin related matters.

During the cruise our onboard mixologist will prepare 2 handcrafted gin cocktails of choice for each VIP guest.

Gin inspired canapés will be on each table to maximise the flavours on board as you watch the sun set over the Purbeck Hills.

There are also 26 single tickets available at £45 per guest, to enjoy the fun and soak up the atmosphere on the upper, fore and stern decks.

Single ticket guests will receive 2 gin tokens each, which can be taken to the onboard bar during the cruise and exchanged for ‘Perfect Serve’ Large G&Ts.

Our chosen mixer brand produce natural flavoured tonics, with each tonic complimenting different gins and enhancing certain botanicals in each.

Canapés are also on board, to be enjoyed as we take in stunning views of Brownsea Castle, Millionaires Row at Sandbanks and the islands of Poole Harbour.

There is a renaissance in gin… Be part of the revolution.
