Tarquin's Handcrafted Cornish Dry Gin

Tarquin's Handcrafted Cornish Dry Gin

from 19.99

42% ABV


Handcrafted in tiny batches of just 300 bottles, Tarquin's Cornish Gin is the love child of head distiller Tarquin Leadbetter and a flame-fired copper pot still called Tamara. Using fresh orange zest and hand-picked Devon violets, Tarquin has created a wonderfully aromatic spirit that was awarded a gold medal at the IWSC in 2014.

 A contemporary take on a classic London Dry, we use fragrant hand picked Devon violets and fresh orange zest to deliver an aromatic sensation unlike any other. We like to think the result is comparable to stumbling upon a beautiful orange blossom in the middle of a crisp, dry pine forest. Only the best and most pure spirit (the heart) makes it into Tarquin's Gin, which is diluted to bottling strength at 42% with Cornish spring water. Our juniper is from Kosovo, it is fresh and earthy/woody, but also quite floral.

To complement, we use lemon-sherberty coriander seeds from Bulgaria, rather than the hot and spicy Moroccan variety. The citrus notes come from the fresh fruit zests of sweet orange, lemon and grapefruit, from wherever they are in season. We also use angelica root from Poland, orris root from Morocco, green cardamom seeds from Guatemala, bitter almond from Morocco, cinnamon from Madagascar, liquorice root from Uzbekistan and Devon violets from the garden.
