Salcombe Cask Aged Gin 70cl 46% ABV
Salcombe Cask Aged Gin
This Gin is a smooth and elegant spirit with layers of fresh citrus, spice and complex aged Fino notes.
Salcombe 'Fruiters' were schooner sailing vessels built in Salcombe and neighbouring Kindsbridge in the 1820s-1880s. Small and fast with their copper sheathed hulls and an ability to sail close to the wind, they were designed to carry the highly perishable cargo of fresh fruit and spices from around the world.
Cargo was kept under 150 tonnes to avoid crushing the fruit and they sailed with their hatches open in all but the worst weather to keep the fruit in top condition.
This limited bottling traces a famous trading route from Jerez, Spain, reawakening a bygone era of adventure and trade, with Salcombe Gin aged in a handpicked Sherry cask from Bodegas Tradicion.
