Salcombe Gin 'Start Point'

$39.99

750ml. 44% ABV.

Distilled to the exacting one-shot London Dry method, this classic citrus-led gin is elegantly smooth, distinct and complex yet extremely versatile.

Named after the iconic ‘Start Point’ lighthouse which marked the beginning of the 19th century voyages of the Salcombe Fruit Schooners which carried the exotic goods, fruits and spices that inspire this gin’s signature flavour.

‘Start Point’ is exceptionally smooth; it can be enjoyed neat, makes an exceptional ‘Gin & Tonic’ and thrives in an array of cocktails.

‘Start Point’ is handcrafted with no added sugar, flavourings or colourings and is blended with naturally soft water from Dartmoor National Park.

Botanicals

‘Start Point’ is created using the finest Macedonian juniper berries selected for their high limonene content and the fresh citrus peels of red grapefruit, lemon and lime which are hand peeled each day prior to distillation.

A further nine botanicals including English coriander seed, cardamom, cubeb berries, liquorice and angelica root are used to create this exceptionally smooth London Dry 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 Indian tonic water and a slice of red grapefruit to complement the rich and warm citrus notes. Alternatively try one of our ‘Start Point’ signature serves and cocktails.
