If gin is one of things closest to your heart, you’re not alone – us Brits drinks so much of it that the Office for National Statistics now counts it as part of our ‘typical weekly shop’.

So it’s no surprise that there’s a wide selection of gin-themed activities on offer nearby, from a gin school to gin-and-gingerbread masterclasses.

And now, over in Dorset, you can go on a gin cruise.

Are you all sorted for Mothers (ruin) Day? #thatsthespirit #conkergin #mothersday #gintonic

Conker Spirit, Dorset’s first gin distillery, has teamed up with Dorset Cruises to offer 28 guests the chance to cruise Poole harbour for a truly gin-infused experience.

Jumping aboard a 1938 vintage motor yacht (the Dorset Queen), attendees will float around the harbour whilst taking part in a private gin masterclass.

This will include learning about gin production, an introduction to Conker Spirit and sipping on a selection of gin cocktails created by an on-board mixologist as you enjoy the view.

The boat will then stop by one of three restaurants so you can enjoy a three-course meal before heading home again (with more cocktails on the way back).

And if you don’t want it to end quite then, you’ll also be sent off with your own 700ml bottle of Conker gin.

Tickets cost £125, and the Dorset Queen sets sail on Tuesday April 11th and Tuesday April 25th – so you’d better mark the date in your diary soon.
