SALCOMBE GIN START POINT
Distilled to the exacting one-shot London Dry method, this classic citrus led gin is exceptionally smooth, distinct and complex yet extremely versatile.
Named after the iconic ‘Start Point’ lighthouse that marked the beginning of the 19th century voyages of the Salcombe Fruit Schooners who once carried the exotic goods, fruits and spices that inspire this gin’s signature flavour.
Distilled and crafted in Salcombe, Devon, using only the finest Macedonian Juniper, English coriander seeds, fresh Mediterranean citrus peels and eight further hand sourced botanicals from around the world, blended together with pure, naturally soft Dartmoor water to create this perfectly balanced gin.
Tasting Notes: ‘Start Point’ has distinct notes of red grapefruit along with heady, earthy pine notes from the Macedonian juniper. It is perfectly balanced with warming spiced aromas on the nose. Rich, full and incredibly smooth on the palate, with a touch of earthy sweetness from liquorice and angelica root. The finish is fresh, lingering and balanced whilst lengthened by green cardamom.
Best served: On its own over ice or with a premium tonic water garnished with a slice of red grapefruit to complement the rich and warm citrus notes. Alternatively try one of our ‘Start Point’ signature serves and cocktails.
