Complementing our Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth gins, the new Queen Anne gin will showcase the natural beauty and botanical diversity of the British Isles, unified during the reign of Queen Anne. The unique flavour profile combines a blend of herbaceous milk thistle, heather, and zesty sea buckthorn, balanced with the sweetness of Queen Anne rose petals and blackcurrant leaf.

As with our three existing gins, the Queen Anne gin Edition pays tribute to one of the regions in which our ships often sail. The Queen Mary 2 Edition offers a taste of the Americas infused with crisp apple, warm cinnamon, and juicy cherry notes. The Queen Victoria Edition provides a taste of the Mediterranean with blood orange, fragrant lemon myrtle and olive leaf. Finally, the Queen Elizabeth Edition comes steeped with Oriental influences, such as Lotus Root, Star Anise, and Kaffir Lime Leaf.


All Cunard 4 Queens Gin editions use a recipe based on an original Bombay family recipe, dating from 17 July 1947, and are exclusively distilled for Cunard in partnership with Summerhall Distillery, Edinburgh. Read more about our long-standing partnership with this fantastic distillery, including a special family connection!

On board our fleet, each Cunard 4 Queens gin is paired with a complementing tonic and unique garnish that amplifies the flavours of their botanicals. The perfect serve for the Queen Anne Edition sees the gin paired with Fever-Tree Tonic, with dehydrated petals delicately garnishing the glass.


Guests travelling on board Queen Anne, who sets sail on 3 May 2024, will be among the first to try the Queen Anne Edition gin, which will be served in all bars and restaurants on board. The British-themed gin will also be available to buy direct from the Summerhall Distillery website from May 2024 (for UK address delivery).

Cunard teamed up with the nation’s favourite bartender, TV star Merlin Griffiths, to showcase the perfect pour for the Queen Anne Edition. An award-winning cocktail-making champion, Merlin was able to match the uniquely British botanicals for a smooth and elegant finish. Watch how he did it in our exclusive video.
