Our Salcombe Gin Butlers can be reserved to board your yacht for the ultimate 'pennant hour'*, preparing signature Salcombe Gin cocktails and providing exquisite liquid refreshment for you and your guests on board.

The Salcombe Gin Butler Service includes:
A Salcombe Gin Butler on board your yacht for two hours
Serving Gin Cocktails for up to six guests (unlimited drinks service)
30 mins set up / breakdown
Priced at £500
Additional guests can be added at a cost of £50 per person
Booking is essential
This service is available in the summer months for yachts in the Salcombe area and can also be booked for properties located in Salcombe and the surrounding villages.
*Historically gin pennant flags were raised by naval captains to invite officers from nearby sailing vessels on board for drinks; consequently junior officers would often compete to raise the gin pennant aboard other ships and thereafter arrive demanding refreshment!
