Tonic for guests as P&O Cruises launches its own exclusive blended gin

To commemorate 180 years of P&O history - and to celebrate World Gin Day on 10 June - P&O Cruises is launching its first-ever exclusive blended gin, named after co-founder, Arthur Anderson.

Anderson’s Gin is uniquely hand-crafted and blended by P&O Cruises’ in-house team and distilled at Edinburgh’s award-winning Summerhall Distillery. Each bottle is then bottled, labelled, waxed and shipped fleetwide.

It tells the story of east meeting west with 11 key botanicals born from P&O’s historical routes being copper distilled to create a superbly smooth and lightly spiced gin.

For gin aficianados, the aroma is juniper-led with hints of delicate coriander spice and fragrant citrus notes from kaffir lime and blood orange. On the palate, the gin starts with a tingling, all encompassing mouth feel, peppered with sweet aromatic spice – the sweetness of fennel and star anise and warming, dominant coriander notes. Ceylon tealeaves and heather provide a subtle floral finish and the addition of angelica root makes the perfect base for a delicious gin and tonic.

The bottle’s label design traces Arthur Anderson’s original nautical lines, both literally and figuratively and is inspired by traditional nautical charts with a nod to the gin’s namesake in the shape of his silhouette.

Says P&O Cruises senior vice president Paul Ludlow: “Gin is a quintessentially British drink so what better way to commemorate P&O Cruises’ 180 years of history than with our own exclusive blend. This must-try gin experience will not only give a taste of far-flung destinations but will provide a real talking point for guests.”

Anderson’s Gin will be available in all bars fleetwide from 10 June

In addition, P&O Cruises will be celebrating World Gin Day across the fleet with a gin masterclass, gin flights comprising all British gins onboard and deck tasters.
