Tarquin adds the most prized feather to his already fairly illustrious cap. The third addition to the permanent range, the brilliantly bold Tarquin’s “The SeaDog’ Navy Strength Gin, clocking in at a punchy 57% abv, is crowned the “World’s Best Gin” at the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition from a contesting using age pool of over 260 individual gins. A fairly remarkable achievement for a self-taught distiller, using old techniques in a converted cow shed perched on a windswept hilltop overlooking the wild Cornish Coast.
Cut to the present day and yet more exciting developments. The addition of a forth, state-of-the-art 500 litre copper still – Ferrara – brings yet more opportunities and scope for continued growth. This one-of-a-kind modern still now stands side by side with the three original pot stills. A fusion of the old and the new. The traditional and the progressive.
Yet, true to his original vision Tarquin’s remains resolute in his approach towards authenticity and integrity. His core ethos remains strong in all that’s attempted and achieved.
It is one thing to have a vision. And quite another to bring this vision to life.
This is the story of Tarquin’s Cornish Gin.

South Western Distillery is headed up by Tarquin who is so proud of his creation he puts his name on every bottle. He believes in doing things the old-fashioned way, even if it takes longer. 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. Tarquin's Dry Gin is made in small batches of just 300 bottles at a time before being hand selected, bottled, labeled and signed by Tarquin himself. This attention to detail goes some way to explaining why this is our best selling Cornish gin.
