Co-founders Howard Davies and Angus Lugsdin met teaching sailing in Salcombe over 20 years ago. Since launching Salcombe Gin ‘Start Point’ in 2016, they have built a distillery and bar serving ‘Salcombe & Tonics’ overlooking the water and also launched the first Gin School in the South West of England at their premises in Island Street, Salcombe. Using only the finest hand sourced ingredients, Salcombe Gin is made using thirteen carefully selected botanicals distilled in 60 litre beautiful copper stills with English wheat spirit and blended with pure Dartmoor water. The end result is a gin of extraordinary quality and elegance with no compromise. ‘Perfect served on its own over ice or with a premium tonic water accompanied by a slice of ruby red grapefruit to complement the rich and warm citrus notes, Salcombe Gin also makes a cracking dry Martini with a twist of red grapefruit peel.
