More About Tarquin's Gin 
Southwestern Distillery or 'Tarquin’s Gin' as it is better known is a Cornish distillery based in Padstow. Their multiple gins and liqueurs aim to capture the essence of the scenic Cornish Coast. Owned and founded by Tarquin Leadbetter, Southwestern Distillery go back to basics and use traditional techniques and equipment to produce batches of hand bottled dry gin and pastis. The team fills, corks, seals and labels each bottle by hand on site, including unmistakeable the wax dip. A testament to their quality, their Navy Seadog Gin was even voted Best Gin In The World at the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Since the distillery was founded in 2013, Tarquins gin has been embraced by bars and bottle shops around the UK. They quickly established themselves as one of the best-loved and recognised brands in the UK with their excellent branding, frosted bottles and wax seals. We look forward to hearing more about their extraordinary growth and how they have been able to maintain their authenticity and quality amid rapid expansion.

We can't wait to be joined by Tarquins at our next tasting on 13th April. This is a truly unmissable opportunity to learn more about one of the UK's most recognisable and admired craft gin brands.

For our cocktail masterclass we’ll be joined by Chris Jarrett AKA The Bearded Barman (@beardedbarman89 on Instagram). Chris is a self-confessed “Booze wizard” and lover of whiskey who is currently Bar Operations Manager at Cornish pub group Pollock Pubs.

    The presentation was great; the participants were very knowledgeable and entertaining. Unfortunately, I was not keen on the product. I found it a little tasteless and plastic.
