Salcombe Distilling CoDistance from the centre of Kingsbridge: 3.1 miles
Exceptional London Dry Gin, distilled and crafted in Salcombe, South Devon...
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 out gin according to the 'London Dry' standard, although we like to think of it as 'Devon Dry'; London Dry with Devon sunshine!
Salcombe Gin 'Start Point' has the perfect balance of aromas and flavours from the heady, earty 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 ditillation. 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.
