Salcombe Gin 'Start Point'

70cl | 44% ABV | England

Salcombe’s gin is named after the iconic ‘Start Point’ lighthouse that marked the beginning of the 19th century voyages of the Fruit Schooners, which carried the exotic goods, fruits and spices that inspire this gin’s signature flavour.

Serve it with Indian tonic water and a slice of red grapefruit to complement the rich and warm citrus notes. It’s also a good gin for those who like a Martini served with a twist.

Juniper
"The gin is lovely, the packaging is beautifully tactile and the combination is somehow greater than the sum of its parts. Salcombe Dry Gin is an ideal gift idea as the impact is quite spectacular, with the liquid really backing it up."

About this product

Distilled to an exacting one-shot London Dry method, Start Point Gin uses Macedonian juniper berries alongside nine other botanicals, as well fresh red grapefruit, lemon and lime peels which are hand peeled each day prior to distillation.

Launched in 2016 after years of careful building, founders Angus Lugsdin and Howard Davies have built up a team and a distillery with global reputation. The core identity remains the same though; a common love of gin and their stunning coastal home.

Based in South Devon, the beautiful distillery and bar is nestled in Island Street, the traditional boat building quarter of Salcombe. They reflect this provenance by using maritime inspiration to form the ideas throughout their gin recipes.
