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 Blood Orange Gin we first start the process of distilling our flagship Tarquin’s Cornish Dry Gin with a subtle twist, the addition of Gentian Root. We macerate these 12 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 the most brilliant blood orange and fresh pressed summer fruits.
Finally we cut the gin with de-mineralized Cornish spring water to bring it down to the desired 38% abv. 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.
