Tarquin’s Cornish Dry Gin
Out of stock
A contemporary take on a classic London dry gin, distilled with 12 botanicals sourced from across the globe and locally foraged on the wild Cornish coast. Crisp piney notes from the juniper balance with fresh citrus and a bright floral finish. Try it with red grapefruit and a sprig of thyme.
The Corky Verdict
Fresh, crisp and vibrant juniper nose. Light aromatic spice, orange blossom and a hint of cardamom. Creamy, dry with delicate green pine and subtle frangipane notes. Crisp and clean on the finish, with lingering citrus zest and eastern spices. A beautiful Gin.
- Location: Wadebridge, Cornwall

Tarquin Leadbetter, Founder and Head Distiller at Tarquin’s Gin has quite the story to tell.
In 2012, as a 23-year-old, classically trained chef, he found himself working in an office in the city of London. This foreign environment got him thinking about what he really wanted to do with his life, and so Tarquin set his sights on establishing the first Cornish distillery for over 100 years.
Self-taught, he began experimenting with every botanical he could find – over 100 different trial gin batches later, 12 were selected to make the first batch of Tarquin’s Cornish Gin. There were no machines, no automation, no out-sourcing. Every stage of the process was judged by eye, touch and taste – ensuring the authenticity and integrity of the final product.
This is Tarquin’s core ethos. The first batch was distilled then filled, labelled, waxed, stamped and signed all by hand – a process that remains the same to this day.
