A Gin Cruise Is Happening on the Thames and It Looks Pretty Special

Hobbs of Henley Gin Tasting Cruises

If you thought this summer was a complete write off then think again because a gin tasting cruise is here to save the day.

With ‘staycations’ a popular option this year due to the uncertainty of global travel, cruising through some of Britain’s most stunning scenery with a glass of gin in hand has never seemed more appealing.

Hobbs of Henley, who make Mr Hobbs Gin are holding two special cruises aboard The New Orleans – one in September and one in October – with tickets costing £48 per person.

The gin tasting cruises will embark from Henley, Oxforshire and set sail for a three hour return journey down the Thames.

The return of the cruises follows successful outings last year and whilst events in March and May were cancelled, it’s great news they are happening at all this year considering the effect COVID-19 has had on the hospitality sector.

Gin events specialists The Gin to My Tonic will host the gin cruises, featuring locally produced gin from Mr Hobbs Gin as one of five gin tasting courses.

Mr Hobbs gins include a classic London Dry style gin, Rhubarb & Ginger Gin Liqueur and Raspberry & Elderflower Gin Liqueur.

Guests will be encouraged to get interactive with the gins, tonics and garnishes in order to create a fun and informal experience, and whilst doing so helping to master the perfect serve.

Included in the ticket price will be bar snacks and of course the five different gin and tonics for the evening.

Hobbs of Henley Gin Tasting Cruises set sail on 18 September and 16 October. Tickets cost £48 and can be bought from the Hobbs of Henley website.
