A bright and fresh Gin born of a trading port’s history in fruits and spices.

Howard Davies and Angus Lugsdin met at a local sailing club in Devon, UK. They shared a love of boating and would share "Sundowner" cocktails at the end of the day overlooking the sea in the town of Salcombe. In 2014 they decided to start a Spirits business together and they started construction in 2015, opening their Salcombe Gin facility in 2016 with a sixty-liter still. Now operating a four-hundred and fifty liter production still, they have developed a selection of five Gins and one Rum made by the sea with a tasting room and Gin-making school to boot.

Salcombe Gin 'Start Point' is the first product they produced and it still forms the core of their range. The name not only refers to the beginning of their business, but also to the nearby "Start Point Lighthouse" that juts out into the English Channel. The Gin is made with the London Dry Method to infuse thirteen botanicals, including Macedonian juniper; the fresh peels of lemon, lime and red grapefruit; cardamom; licorice; cinnamon; chamomile; English coriander seeds; angelica root; and cubeb berries.

Smartass Corner:
The "London Dry Method" infuses the botanicals into Spirit during the distillation process. No flavor infusions can be added or blended after the fact.
