Tarquin GinAs a fully-independent, family-run business, we at Southwestern Distillery like to celebrate the fact that we do things a little bit differently.
All our botanicals are meticulously hand sourced by our founder and head distiller Tarquin himself. We add them to a neutral grain spirit and allow them to macerate for 12 hours in our pot stills.
We use age-old traditional distilling techniques; heating our copper pot stills with a direct naked flame and sealing the top of the stills with bread dough.
Only the purest heart of the distillation makes it into our gin. Our heads and tails cuts are all judged by nose and taste. The moment we decide to make the cut is the most important part of the whole process.
We cut the neat spirit we take from the still with varying amounts of the purest British water to get the desired strength of alcohol.
Every single stage is lovingly done by hand. No shortcuts taken. No quality compromise. We ensure every bottle that leaves the distillery has it’s own unique personality.
The most enjoyable part of it all. Delivering a little slice of pure Cornish sunshine to every glass.
