Salcombe Gin

We are thrilled to be the premium gin pour at Temple Island Meadows during Henley Royal Regatta serving exceptional ‘Salcombe & Tonics’ and cocktails throughout. We are also very excited to be offering two exclusive gin services to enhance visitors experience; The Salcombe Gin Butler Service and The Salcombe Gin Hamper Delivery Service (pre-booking essential).

Inspired by the coastal vitality of Salcombe and its ship building heritage for exotic trading routes, we create exceptional gins at our waterside distillery on Island Street, Salcombe; one of the world’s only distilleries directly accessible by boat. Visitors to our distillery in Salcombe can often watch our distillers at work whilst enjoying a ‘Salcombe & Tonic’ in our tasting bar overlooking the estuary. Next door is our Gin School where visitors can make their very own bespoke 70cl bottle of gin and is also home to The Victuallers where one can peruse our carefully curated collection of products and purchase a little Salcombe to take home!

Visitors to Temple Island Meadows during Henley Royal Regatta will be able to enjoy our flagship and internationally award-winning gin, Salcombe Gin ‘Start Point’ as the ultimate G&T or fabulous cocktail. ‘Start Point’ is a classic citrus led London-Dry gin which uses 13 carefully selected botanicals including Macedonian juniper and English coriander seed as well as the finest fresh citrus fruit peels of red grapefruit, lemon and lime which were once carried by the Salcombe Fruit Schooners.
