The Scallywag

Salcombe Gin Scallywag Cocktail

The 'Scallywag' cocktail was created by world renowned chef Mark Hix MBE and his team to showcase our Voyager Series limited edition gin, 'Mischief' made in collaboration with Mark Hix MBE. The 'Scallywag' marries classic flavours of fresh orange, fennel flowers and samphire combined with a touch of cardamom and pastis to create a cocktail inspired by the South West coastline.
