Presenting Cunard 4 Queens gin
We’re delighted to announce our new Cunard 4 Queens gin range, which will include an inaugural Queen Anne Edition for the very first time.
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 flavor 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 July 17, 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 flavors 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 traveling on board Queen Anne, who sets sail on May 3, 2024, will be among the first to try the Queen Anne Edition gin, which will be served in all bars and restaurants on board.
