About company

Inspired by the coastal vitality of Salcombe and its shipbuilding heritage for exotic trading routes, Salcombe Distilling Co. creates exceptional gins at its waterside distillery on Island Street, Salcombe; one of the world’s only distilleries directly accessible by boat.

Launched in 2016, Salcombe Gin is distilled on ‘Provident’, a 450l bespoke copper pot still which stands proud behind glass doors at the distillery for all to see whilst enjoying a ‘Salcombe & Tonic’ in the tasting bar overlooking the Salcombe estuary. Next door is The Gin School where visitors can learn about distillation and create their own bottle of gin.
