The Gin Cruise 

Experience a tranquil 3 hour cruise down the picturesque River Lee in Hertfordshire or London with Gin on the River cruises.   Starting in the historic town of Ware, we will head towards Hertford passing through original working locks, returning to Ware late afternoon.   We have also launched our London Sailings that take place on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic park and East London Canals.

Within this idealic setting we will present 4 Gins, discuss the story behind each one and what creates that Gin's unique taste and history. Enjoy the taste of these gins, provided as samples as we cruise towards Hertford. The final hour or so of the cruise will be the chance to try 2 of the 4 Gins in a signature Gin and Tonic, served by our specialist bartender.   Total amount of Gin and Tonics included in the ticket price is 6. The boats are fully staffed with an experienced crew and is accessible to all.
