The gin that scored second place in the best gins of 2018, as voted my our members was...

Salcombe, Start Point Gin


Inspired by seafarers and distilled just steps from the shore, the elegant spirit in February's Gin of the Month box was as smooth as the calmest sea, Start Point, the flagship spirit from Salcombe Gin won the hearts of our members back on valentines day!

ABV 44%


Macedonian Juniper, Ruby Grapefruit Peel, Lemon Peel, Lime Peel, Coriander, Angelica Root, Orris Root, Bay Leaf, Chamomile, Cinnamon, Cubeb Pepper, Liquorice Root, Green Cardamom

Tasting Notes:

Citrusy and floral on the nose, on the palate the earthy, resinous notes of juniper combine with warming, spiced citrus. A fruity, peppery heat from cubeb pepper mingles with the warmth of cinnamon, descending into a finish lengthened by green cardamom.

Perfect Serve:

Fill a glass with ice. Combine 50ml of Salcombe Gin with the premium tonic water of your choice, and garnish with a slice of ruby grapefruit.

Impeccably smooth and rich with the flavours of juniper, citrus and spice, Salcombe, Start point delighted our members who told us exactly what they thought:
