Co-founders Howard Davies and Angus Lugsdin met teaching sailing in Salcombe over 20 years ago. Since launching Salcombe Gin ‘Start Point’ in 2016, they have built a distillery and bar serving ‘Salcombe & Tonics’ overlooking the water and also launched the first Gin School in the South West of England at their premises in Island Street, Salcombe. Using only the finest hand sourced ingredients, Salcombe Gin is made using thirteen carefully selected botanicals distilled in 60 litre beautiful copper stills with English wheat spirit and blended with pure Dartmoor water. The end result is a gin of extraordinary quality and elegance with no compromise.
‘Perfect served on its own over ice or with a premium tonic water accompanied by a slice of ruby red grapefruit to complement the rich and warm citrus notes, Salcombe Gin also makes a cracking dry Martini with a twist of red grapefruit peel.

‘Start Point’ has already won numerous awards including Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Gold at the World Gin Awards, Platinum at the Beverage Tasting Institute and 3 Stars at Great Taste Awards.

They have recently launched a limited-edition gift set, including their new ‘Finisterre’ barrel aged gin and an aged Fino from Bodegas Tradición. It reawakens a bygone era of adventure and trade, tracing a famous nineteenth century trading route of the Salcombe Fruit Schooners from Cadiz to England which carried fresh citrus spices and sherry from Jerez. Aged in the same 624 litre American oak Fino sherry cask from which the accompanying Fino was drawn, Salcombe Gin ‘Finisterre’ has tempered citrus notes, wonderful candied citrus aromas and moreish saline hints from the aged Fino, resulting in a complex yet sophisticated gin with great character and depth of flavour.
