Southampton Boat Show will launch its first ever gin festival to run within the show throughout the 10 days, September 14-23.

At the inaugural Harbourside Gin Festival with Pegasus Life, guests are invited to unwind and take time to appreciate a selection of hand-picked local and nautical-themed gins.

The Harbourside Gin Festival will be housed within a pop-up garden set with parasoled seating, a festival bar and live music courtesy of resident pianist Danny Mills. For those connoisseurs who want to further immerse themselves in the world of gin, there is also an exclusive Harbourside Gin Festival Experience, which can be enjoyed by a select number every day.

This premium package features a welcome cocktail designed by the show’s mixologists and access to the intimate Gin Lounge, a private seating area with views of the Boat Show. It also includes a bespoke masterclass where guests can take a journey through the world of botanicals.
