Artisan Spirits Handcrafted in Cornwall.
Southwestern Distillery are an independent, family company handcrafting Gin and Pastis in tiny batches (the old-fashioned way) by the coast of north Cornwall.
At the heart of their process lies a special, flame-fired, copper pot still called Tamara, goddess of the Tamar.
Together with a harmonious balance of precision and flair, Southwestern Distillery are able to produce spirits that are truly exceptional.
Tarquin, our founder, pioneer and head distiller is so proud of what we create that he puts his name on every bottle.

A contemporary take on a classic London Dry, Southwestern Distillery use fragrant handpicked Devon violets and fresh orange zest to deliver an aromatic sensation unlike any other.
They like to think the result is comparable to stumbling upon a beautiful orange blossom in the middle of a crisp, dry pine forest.
Only the best and most pure spirit (the heart) makes it into Tarquin’s Gin, which is diluted to bottling strength at 42% with Cornish spring water.
