Tarquin's Cornish Dry Gin
This product is currently sold out.
Southwestern Distillery are an independent, family company handcrafting gin in tiny batches (the old-fashioned way) by the coast of north Cornwall. At the heart of their process lies a special, flame-fired, copper pot still called Tamara, goddess of the Tamar. Together with a harmonious balance of precision and flair, they are able to produce spirits that are truly exceptional. Their Cornish Dry gin is a Gold Medal winner at the San Francisco International Spirits competition and is a contemporary take on a classic London Dry.
But what makes this gin unique is they use fragrant handpicked Devon violets and fresh orange zest to deliver an aromatic sensation unlike any other. 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.
The juniper is from Kosovo, it is fresh and earthy/woody, but also quite floral. To complement, they also use lemon-sherberty coriander seeds from Bulgaria, rather than the hot and spicy Moroccon variety. The citrus notes come from the fresh fruit zests of sweet orange, lemon and grapefruit, from wherever they are in season. They 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.
