Salcombe Gin School

Distance from the centre of Kingsbridge: 3.1 miles


The Salcombe Distilling Co can offer the ultimate gin experience for gin enthusiasts at their outstanding distilling laboratory for adults. You will take charge of a beautiful mini copper pot still to develop and distil your very own 70cl bottle of gin. 

Under the guidance of one of our distillers, you will learn the art of distillation and what it takes to prodcue a well-balanced and harmonious gin, whilst enjoying a Salcombe & Tonic or two. 

To help create your gin recipe, you'll have your pick of a range of botanicals or you can bring your own to experiment with. Stick with tradition and produce a classic juniper led gin or go wild with all sorts of citrus, floral, herbal and spicy botanicals.

You'll enjoy sampling and naming your unique creation before bottling your gin. It's then time to apply a personalised label and place your bottle in one of our exclusive gin school wooden presentation boxes for you to take home.

Finally, to complete your gin school experience, you'll head over to our Distillery Bar at The Boathouse to taste your newly created gin with a range of garnishes and tonics whilst enjoying the estuary view.
