Cruise through London’s canals and sip rum cocktails with Dead Man’s Fingers


Keep summer alive by climbing aboard the Dead Man’s Fingers Rum Canal Boat (now until 31st October) to sip punchy rum cocktails while cruising the capital’s canals.

Moored at Granary Square, Kings Cross, the Dead Man’s Fingers Rum Boat sets sail daily at 7pm, laden with Cornish rum and heaps of maverick spirit.

Dead Man’s Fingers, the Cornish rum brand that brought the innovative ‘SkullCuts’ barbers to Shoreditch last month, has teamed up with Ladies & Gentlemen bar to run the hour-long tours for cosy cocktail cruises.

The boat holds a maximum motley crew of 12 persons and is fully enclosed to suit any weather and boasts a roaring coal fire aboard to keep all guests toasty.

Guests will be greeted at Granary Square, Kings Cross and travel eastwards past the iconic Guardian Building. The rum cruise will sail under Caledonian Road before entering the Victorian-designed Islington Tunnel and into leafy Islington, a picturesque scene that hasn’t changed since the turn of the century – all this with a Dead Man’s Fingers cocktail in hand.

To help landlubbers find their sea legs the first drink is on the house – sorry, boat – then guests can choose from a selection of tasty cocktails made with Dead Man’s Fingers Spiced Rum, Coffee Rum and Coconut Rum, from the onboard bar and talented team from Ladies & Gents.
