What better way to enjoy the summer sun than with a Pink Gin cocktail in hand. The drink was fashionable in England during the mid-19th century and is traditionally made with Plymouth Gin and a dash of Angostura bitters to give the drink its pinkish tinge. We’ve provided the recipe below so you can impress your friends and family.
The drink is served in the Royal Deck Tea Room on board Britannia using our own brand Britannia Gin. Britannia Gin is made from 16 botanicals; each originating from a port visited by the Royal Yacht during her 44 years at sea and is distilled and bottled in Edinburgh. The botanicals include: juniper, lime, lemon, eucalyptus leaves, lemon, myrtle, liquorice root, bog myrtle, angelica, coriander, blood orange, orris root, pepper, lotus root, cloves, rose petal and heather. Britannia's hand crafted gin is available to buy from our Gift Shop in a 70cl bottle and as a 5cl miniature.
Britannia Gin and Edinburgh Gin are available from our menu in the Royal Deck Tea Room, where you can treat yourself with speciality teas, coffees and lunch. The Royal Deck is a contemporary addition to the Royal Yacht and was where the Royal Family previously would have enjoyed drinks receptions, state banquets, or relaxed playing deck games.
