Inspired by the coastal vitality of Salcombe and its shipbuilding heritage, Salcombe Distilling Co. creates exceptional gin at its waterside distillery on Island Street, Salcombe; one of the world’s only distilleries directly accessible by boat.
Salcombe Fruiters were schooner sailing vessels built in Salcombe and neighbouring Kingsbridge in the 19th century. These hand built ships were the fastest of their day, with copper sheathed hulls and an ability to sail close to the wind, they were small and fast to carry the highly perishable cargo of fresh fruits and spices from around the world to England’s ports. .
Harnessing the essence of these ships’ precious cargo and their exotic trading routes, Salcombe Distilling Co. use only the finest citrus fruits and spices to create their collection of exceptional multi-award winning gins, each led by flavour and inspired by history.
Nestled amongst traditional boat builders on Island Street, they continue Salcombe’s legacy of producing outstanding handcrafted products. Drawing influence from the rich maritime history, Salcombe Distilling Co. produce every drop of their gins with an unrivalled passion, care and attention to detail.
