Not all gins are made the same 

Our gin is hand crafted on a beautiful 450l copper pot still at our distillery in Salcombe. Each batch is distilled with an unrivalled passion, care and attention to detail THEN blended together with Dartmoor water to produce an exceptional gin. We don’t compromise on quality, period.

Unlike many larger producers, we use a more TRADITIONAL approach known as the one shot method and distil our gin according to the ‘London Dry’ standard, although we like to think of it as ‘Devon Dry’; London Dry with DEVON sunshine!

 
 

GrapefruitS, Lemons & Limes


Salcombe Gin 'START POINT' HAS the perfect balance of aromas and flavours FROM the heady, earthy and resinous pine notes of the finest Macedonian juniper, selected for their high Limonene content, TO the warming spiced citrus notes from English coriander seeds and fresh citrus peels, HAND peeled by us JUST prior to distillation.

We use a number of citrus peels including RUBY grapefruit, lemon and lime which were some of the fruits carried by the famous Salcombe Fruiters, a key part of our spirit's  heritage.

Exotic Botanicals


Our citrus fruits are complemented by a further ten botanicals which have been hand sourced from around the world. Each has a story to tell, none are mass produced, all are traceable to their source and all are picked at their best. We are uncompromisingly fussy about their quality.

Many of our botanicals, including our fresh citrus and spices have been traced back to the global maritime trading routes and CARGOES once carried by the Salcombe Fruiters. whilst These botanicals are still shipped to England, they are sadly no longer onboard the beautiful fast sailing fruit schooners of a bygone era.

Dartmoor water


Of utmost importance and often overlooked in gin distillation is the quality of the water used.

We distil our gin using some of the purest and softest water in England, sourced from high up in the wilds of Dartmoor National Park.

This naturally soft water means we have no need to add water softeners at any stage in the distillation process, resulting in a stunning, refreshing, yet characteristically smooth gin.
