Voyager Series Gin 'Guiding Star': a collaboration with Dirk Niepoort


This limited-edition gin is the third of the Salcombe Gin Voyager Series, a collection of limited-edition gins, each developed in collaboration with an iconic winemaker or world renowned chef.

Named ‘Guiding Star’ after one of the famous Salcombe Fruit Schooners, this limited-edition gin has been developed in collaboration with celebrated winemaker Dirk Niepoort.

Limited to 1,500 bottles, ‘Guiding Star’ is presented in a stunning white ceramic bottle featuring an embossed outline of the iconic gin pennant and a bespoke debossed copper stopper commissioned for the series. Its presentation box has beautiful copper detailing and contains a recipe card for the ‘Colheita Royale’ cocktail created with Dirk and our mixology team.

Tasting Notes:
‘Guiding Star’ is an exceptional cask finished sloe and damson gin where the classic autumnal stone fruit flavours have been accentuated with rose petals, bitter almonds and sweet orange peel. In the glass the gin is deep crimson in colour with a slight brick red tinge from the influence of the tawny port cask in which it was aged. On the palate it is rich and balanced with luscious notes of cherry, blackberries, tart redcurrants and spiced marzipan. The finish is tart with underlying sweetness from the lees of the Niepoort Colheita 1997 tawny port previously aged in the cask

Best served neat, over ice with a premium tonic water or in a sloe gin cocktail.
