Nestled amongst the traditional boatbuilders on Island Street, at one of the world's only distilleries direct accessible by boat, Salcombe Distilling Co. continues Salcombe's legacy of producing outstanding handcrafted products made with an unrivalled passion, care and attention to detail. Salcombe fruit schooners were sailing vessels from the 1800's which were small and fast to carry highly perishable cargo such as fresh fruit and spices, Salcombe gin use the finest fresh ingredients from all over the world as a nod to these fruit schooners in a location which is well known for exceptional handmade products. The co-founders, Howard and Angus, used to work as sealing instructors at The Island Cruising Club where they used to wind down post shift with a gin & tonic as their sundowner. This is where the idea was born. 
Each bottle of their gin is distilled and crafted to exceptional quality in a bespoke 450l copper pot still in Salcombe. They use the finest botanicals fresh from the Mediterranean including citrus peels, red grapefruit, lemon (those that were historically carried on the schooners) and the purest of widest water from the Dartmoor National Park. 
Their Rosé Sainte Marie dry rosé gin is delicate, fresh and truly exquisite. Inspired by the citrus fruits and herbs once carried back from Southern France capturing the vibrant spirit of the Mediterranean coast.
