Rutland Water’s iconic pleasure boat, the Rutland Belle, will be taking to the water on Saturday, 7th July 2018, when it hosts another of its famous Gin Cruise.
Rutland Water Cruises, which owns and operates the Rutland Belle, added Gin Cruises to its already comprehensive cruise offering, which includes Morning Coffee Cruises, Cream Tea Cruises, School Cruises, Osprey Cruises and Wedding Cruises, in addition to regular Public Sailings, last year. “Our trial Gin Cruises proved very popular with the public,” says Matt Broadhead, the Rutland Belle’s owner and senior Captain. “Based on that, we’ve decided to make them a regular feature, every summer. After all, what could be better, on a balmy summer evening, than cruising beautiful Rutland Water whilst trying a selection of different gins from renowned suppliers.
“The first Gin Cruise of 2018 will take place on Saturday, 7th July 2018 with boarding at 6pm and the Cruise scheduled to last three hours; ‘carriages’ at 10:00 pm. For just £28 per person, in addition to the cruise itself, you can enjoy a selection of quality finger food, music by renowned local classical guitarist, Steve Bean, a Gin Quiz and a talk on gin plus a sample of three different gins.
We will also be supplying a wide range of different tonic waters and garnishes and preparing each cocktail individually on the boat. The event will be limited to over 18s only and the Rutland Belle will be providing soft drinks, free of charge to all nominated drivers. Gin drinks will be priced at a very reasonable £5 per glass and will be sold using a token system run by the Rutland Belle’s crew. Special dietary requirements can also be catered for if notified at the time of booking.
The event is likely to prove very popular so book early to avoid disappointment.
