SOUTHWESTERN

Distillery
Founded in 2011
The Southwestern Distillery was founded in 2011 on the Cornish coast, but it wasn’t until mid-2013 that the first batch of Gin was sold. Today, the company produces a number of Gins under their Tarquin's brand, as well as Pastis, all lovingly made on one site in Cornwall.

Founder and Distiller Tarquin Leadbetter oversees every single batch made in the distillery. Every batch is tasted, and every bottle signed by the man himself. The family-run business is traditional in its approach, and everything is hand bottled, hand labeled and hand sealed.

With just 300 bottles per batch, you can be sure that quality and attention to detail goes into every bottle. The distillery’s location on the Cornish coast means that locally sourced Cornish water powers the distillery and goes into every one of its products.

What does Southwestern taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Southwestern Gin. It's based on all Southwestern drinks in our large database and gives you a chance to taste Southwestern before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
