Internationally acclaimed Salcombe Distilling Co. has introduced four stylish signature serve cocktails showcasing their multi award-winning Salcombe Gin ‘Start Point’. Smooth, distinct and complex, this citrus led London Dry Gin has established itself as a versatile super premium gin, that can be enjoyed on its own over ice, is flawless in a Martini, shines through in a classic cocktail and makes the ultimate G&T. Such versatility has quickly led it to be the gin of choice in many top bars and restaurants across the country.

The four key serves of this elegant smooth gin include Sea mist for a unique sea salt G&T, capturing the spirit of the sea, St. Clair a celebratory cocktail and champagne alternative, perfect as an aperitif showcasing the fresh red grapefruit used in the distillation, Pennant Martini for an elegant and perfectly balanced Martini and Signature, the ultimate G&T served simply with plenty of ice and a slice of red grapefruit.  Each serve has been captured on film featuring Head bartender Oli Bateman at the distillery’s waterside bar on Island Street, Salcombe.

SEA MIST – a unique cocktail experience and twist to the signature G&T by capturing the essence of the sea in a liquid garnish delivered through an atomiser spray.  The Salcombe Sea mist spray is distilled using coastal botanicals including samphire and gorse flowers alongside red grapefruit and bay leaf. These are combined with Cornish sea salt to provide a wonderfully moreish finish and a bit of theatre to the ultimate G&T.  The atomiser spray is available to select On-Trade customers.

Salcombe Gin ‘Start Point’ is hand distilled in South Devon using only the finest hand sourced ingredients.
