Iona’s exciting collaboration with Salcombe Gin
We’re collaborating with award-winning gin distiller, Salcombe Gin, to create exclusive gins on Iona! Infused with the rich fruit-trading heritage of the beautiful coastal town of Salcombe, Salcombe Gin shares our zest for adventure and discovering new and exciting flavours. Together, we’re creating a gin recipe that’s tailored to the bold and daring spirit of Iona.
The very first distillery at sea
The gins maiden production will take place in Iona’s custom-made still; innovated by Craft Distilling Business, this is the first still to exist at sea. The unique gin will be distilled, bottled and labelled on board, allowing Iona’s guests to be the first to enjoy our deliciously smooth and one-of-a-kind gin.
A beautifully balanced recipe
Ready your senses for the taste-tingling flavours of a classic yet unrivalled gin and tonic. Or maybe you fancy our gin recipe in a beautifully created cocktail? Bottles of our exclusive gin can even be purchased on Iona—the perfect gift to share (or maybe not share!) back home.
Celebrate your journey with a unique gin
Following the gin’s launch on Iona, Salcombe Gin will distil our recipe in their striking 450 litre copper still ‘Provident’ in Salcombe, ready to share and serve across our ships. This special recipe is made exclusively for P&O Cruises. And we aren’t stopping there. We’re also working with Salcombe Gin to develop limited-edition gins that celebrate the places you experience and connect with on a P&O Cruises holiday. Let the gin-making adventure begin.
