A tranquil 3 hour cruise around the Olympic Park, Hackney Wick and East London Canal Network. Starting from the Pontoon for the Lee and Stort Boat company next to the Olympic Stadium and Returning to this point.


Follow signs for Westfield Shopping Centre, pass through 'The Street' and then follow the signs towards the Park. You will find us on the right of the river.

Within this relaxed setting we will present 4 Gins for tasting, and we will discuss the story behind each one and what creates that Gin's unique taste and history, these will be provided as samples, with Tonic on the table to mix as we cruise around the East London Canel network.


The final hour or so of the cruise on our return to the Pontoon will be the chance to try 2 of the 4 Gins of your choice in a signature G&T serve. (4 tasters with tonics and 2 G&Ts) All drinks are served in our custom Gin glasses which are for patrons to keep as a souvenir, along with our branded bag to carry them in.


We set off from the Lee and Stort Boat Pontoon which is next to the Olympic Stadium, at 1700 sharp and return at 2000.


Food is not provided on the cruise, however patrons can bring snacks and nibbles, there are also some wonderul bars and pubs serving food around the Westfield Shopping centre.
