Salcombe Distilling Company Ltd has been selected by P&O Cruises as the gin partner to develop and implement the concept of the first distillery at sea. This will be installed onboard P&O Cruises' new flagship vessel called Iona launching in May 2020.
As part of this contract, Salcombe Distilling Company Ltd will also develop a special gin that will be distilled, bottled and labelled onboard Iona.
Angus Lugsdin, co-founder of Salcombe Distilling Co, comments: "We're extremely excited to partner on this exciting project with P&O Cruises. Our two brands have an amazingly rich and shared history. At the same time that P&O expanded into leisure cruising in the mid-19th century, the famous Salcombe Fruit schooners were entering their heyday, importing cargoes of precious fruits and spices from the Mediterranean to England's ports and the ships probably passed each other on their voyages."
Angus continues: "Both brands are kindred spirits, born of the sea with a history of breaking new ground and exploring new horizons. To be responsible for creating a unique gin and distilling it onboard the first distillery at sea is a very romantic notion and brings us closer to the intrepid adventurers who travelled the world's oceans seeking out the finest fruits, spices and herbs."
Following the gin's launch on Iona, SDCo will also distil the recipe at their stunning waterside distillery in Salcombe. It will be shared and served across the P&O Cruises fleet as the official premium gin where it will be available in the bars and restaurants onboard and to purchase at duty free retailers alongside their multi-award winning gin portfolio.
SDCo will also bring their expertise onboard, creating unique masterclass experiences for P&O Cruises' guests to create unforgettable holiday memories.
