Everimagined of distilling your own gin on board a canal cruiser? AHOY THERE! Dream no more dear friends! Because you can, whilst swigging a few cocktails on the way. During your London Gin Voyage, setting sail from Kings Cross – Granary Square, the Disco Volante is the world’s first floating distillery. Collaborating with Vestal Vodka, the brains behind Shake Rattle & Stir, old blue eyes himself, mixologist Leon Dalloway is your captain and host.
Vodka? Yes, you heard right. As you’ll learn on board, that gin is basically just flavoured vodka! Using Vestal’s unfiltered vintage vodka, you will select the botanicals to create your own unique, never to be repeated gin. Pretty impressive…get ‘Master Brewer’ on the C.V. now!
Whilst you’re making your hooch, travelling between Camden through to the leafy, lushness of Islington, you’ll enjoy six rather good cocktails, each designed to showcase gin’s connection with the seven seas. Our favourite was the sloe gin and rosemary concoction, deliciously lethal. As well as pure sampling of the spirits, by the end of the trip you’ll have naval strength and hopefully a pair of sea legs.
If you’re a fan of Mother’s Ruin, you won’t be disappointed. With only 12 places per voyage, we suggest you book up now to enjoy this very unique London journey. Hiccup!
