We are an independent, family company handcrafting Tarquin’s Gin and Cornish Pastis in tiny batches (the old-fashioned way) by the coast of north Cornwall.
At the heart of our process lies a special, flame-fired, copper pot still called Tamara, goddess of the Tamar.
Together with a harmonious balance of precision and flair, we 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.
WHAT DO WE DO DIFFERENTLY TO MAKE OUR SPIRITS TASTE BETTER?
There are only 300 bottles created in each batch, often it is less. This means we can give the proper care and attention needed to turn every bottle into something really quite brilliant.
Our still is fired by flame. The myriad of micro reactions in the pot where the copper meets the fire achieves an incredible level of complexity.
We do a one-shot distillation, which means exactly the right blend of botanicals is used in every run to make an entirely finished spirit. Extravagant, but uncompromising.
