You Can Now Take Part in a Gin Tasting on Board Scotland’s Oldest Ship


HMS Unicorn gin tasting

HMS Unicorn was launched in 1824 and for one night only she is set to welcome gin enthusiasts aboard for a gin tasting tour.

The vessel is Scotland’s oldest ship still afloat and the third-oldest in the world so it’s a very special setting for a gin tasting session.

You’ll get a full tour of the ship by one of the knowledgeable staff members and a Dundee Gin Co. representative will be on hand to dish out the tasting samples as you move around the ship.

Dundee Gin Co. will be hosting the tasting which will feature a selection of their own Scottish gin and a special guest Spanish gin.

The Scottish gin distillers began producing gin in 2016 and have five gins available, including Marmalade Liqueur, Summer Fruits Liqueur, Dundee Cake Gin Liqueur, Honey and Spice and Classic Dry.

Dundee Gin Co. are having a launch of their own on the night, a secret new gin is being unveiled on board and it will be part of the gin tasting selection.

Tickets are very limited for this unique experience so make sure you book quickly if you fancy tasting gin on Scotland’s only preserved wooden warship.

The HMS Unicorn gin tasting and tour takes place Saturday 17th August, 4.30pm. Tickets cost £15 and can only be booked online here
