About 3 Queens Gin

Our Co-founder Marcus Pickering is the Great Nephew of famed Cunard Captain George Gibbons CBE RD RNR. A chance connection that has produced a most exceptional gin collection.

Inspired by Cunard's three legendary ships and their elegant sophistication, we have balanced botanicals emblematic of each Queen’s route today.

The launch is a lifelong dream of Marcus', whose great-uncle sailed as captain of Cunard White Star liners from 1909-1944. These ships included: Majestic, Aquitania (“The Ship Beautiful”) and the legendary transatlantic liner the Queen Mary in 1936.

Sold exclusively on board Cunard ships and directly from the distillery, this is your chance to experience the luxury of the world's 5 star Cruise line famed for entertaining Royalty, High Society and Hollywood starlets for 180 years.
