It was chosen for the maiden voyage of P&O’s £475m flagship Britannia and has also been available for tastings for Eurostar’s first-class passengers at St Pancras.
Silent Pool Gin is created using 24 botanicals, including lavender, chamomile, kafir lime and honey.
It is available in a standard 70cl bottle at a retail price of £39.95.
