Tasting Notes

Tarquin's creations are always perfectly balanced and juniper led. Inspired by our home on the Wild Cornish Coast, each of our gins celebrates local flavour, ingredients and environment.


Crisp, fragrant juniper still prominent as the backbone of the gin, with notes of zesty lime, orange blossom and warm spice.


Initial hit of wild strawberry, fresh juniper and a hint of cracked black pepper


Candied strawberry jam and sweet marmalade. Retains a lovely dryness to the finish

Our Process

As a fully-independent, family-run business, we at Southwestern Distillery like to celebrate the fact that we do things a little bit differently.

To create our Tarquin’s Strawberry and Lime Gin we first start the process of distilling our flagship Tarquin’s Cornish Dry Gin. We macerate 11 hand-selected botanicals overnight before adding violets in the morning and firing up the stills. We collect only the purest ‘heart of the distillation’, collecting and setting aside the ‘heads’ and ‘tails’ cuts (the first and last parts of the distillation) that don’t make the most selective taste and texture grade. Post distillation, this ‘hearts cut’ (around 76% abv neat Gin) is lovingly infused with fresh pressed strawberries and cut the gin with de-mineralized Cornish spring water to bring it down to the desired 38% abv.
Finally, just before bottling a touch of fresh lime zest is added for a little sharpness which balances beautifully with the natural sweetness of the strawberries. Every single bottle is then individually hand-filled, labelled with individual batch tasting notes, hand-dipped into a slow-cooker filled with paraffin wax and hand-stamped with our Puffin logo. We truly believe in the value of maximising the human-touch at every stage of the process. When Tarquin puts “Handcrafted in Cornwall” on every bottle, he really does mean it.
