Like many hotels and bars, you’ll find a vast array of different gins to choose from at The Ship Hotel in Brancaster.

But unlike many venues, you’ll find something rather unique on the shelves and on the bar when you ask for a gin and tonic.

The Ship’s unique Black Diamond Premium Gin was developed by our team who worked with a local Norfolk distillery to develop a distinct local flavour, using traditional botanicals, Black Mulberries, Apples, Norfolk Elderflower, Sweet Cranberries, Cassia Bark & Hibiscus.

By the glass, a Black Diamond Gin and tonic really is something rather special and is very much in demand with our regular guests.

As a result, we also sell it by the bottle to those who want to enjoy our special gin long after their stay with us (accompanied by a couple of Ship’s branded glasses and a garnish of dried Black Mulberries and Blueberries)

Presented in a beautiful gift box, it also makes a unique and always very acceptable Christmas gift – just contact us and we’ll arrange to send a bottle to a lucky person of your choice!

Black Diamond is named after the model Ship, “Black Diamond”, which has hung outside our hotel since 1950 and has become a landmark to many thousands of visitors to and residents of the lovely North Norfolk coast. This unique & premium Gin has been created using traditional botanicals, Black Mulberries, Apples, Norfolk Elderflower, Sweet Cranberries, Cassia Bark & Hibiscus.

Whether you just drink our Black Diamond Gin at our bar, take a miniature in your room, take a bottle home or give one to a friend of family member for Christmas, what we are sure about is that you’ll find it a uniquely delicious and refreshing drink!
