You won’t need to be press ganged into joining the crew for this cruise. It’s all about gin.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Once on board you will be introduced to your host aka ‘ The Captain’. Don’t worry he’s not in charge of the boat, just the exquisite cargo.
Simon Sharp runs the The Nautilus Smugglers’ Club, a subscription service which introduces different styles of gin to its members. As this is ‘A Nautilus Voyage’ expect the history of the gin, as well as an introduction to four different distilleries during the cruise.

Expect some tots of very modern gins, from small-batch producers as well as discovering the joys of Old Tom and London Dry.
