Salcombe Gin School

Distance from the centre of Kingsbridge: 3.1 miles
Gin School - Salcombe Distilling Co



At Salcombe Distilling Co.’s outstanding distilling laboratory for adults, you can take charge of a beautiful mini copper pot still to develop and distil your very own 70cl bottle of gin. Learn about how we produce Salcombe Gin and what it takes to produce a well balanced and harmonious gin whilst enjoying a ‘Salcombe & Tonic’.


Create your own gin recipe by choosing from our extensive range of citrus, herbal, floral and spice botanicals or get imaginative and experiment by bringing your own. Our expert distillers will guide you throughout the process including when to make those all important cuts which will influence your spirit’s flavour.


During distillation you will sample and name your unique creation before bottling your gin and placing it in a presentation box with a personalised bottle label. Your experience will conclude in our waterside bar, enjoying an additional measure of your gin with a choice of garnishes and tonics to complement your recipe.


"We're looking forward to re-opening our distillery, bar and bespoke experiences and are busy finalising our plans so we can safely do this. We will keep you posted!"
