An exotic, world spanning botanical basket makes Tarquin's Gin. Orris root from Morocco, green cardamom seeds from Guatemala, cinnamon from Madagascar and Devon violets from... Well, from the distiller's garden in Cornwall.
Southwestern Distillery produce small batches of their artisan Tarquin's Gin using their flame-fired copper pot still called Tamara, goddess of the Tamar. It's then bottled by hand and sent off into the world, to spread the news that Cornwall is producing some fabulous gin.
Nose: Lively with juniper, cardamom and a sweet breeze of orange blossom.
Palate: Incredibly fresh, with energetic but reserved green pine notes.
Finish: Crisp and dry, with a tasty spice that lasts.
Overall: Excellent Cornish gin. Tamara would be proud.

I agree with some of the other reviewers. This is a perfectly good gin but the only outstanding attribute is the bottle. Beefeater will do the job as well for far less buck!

Absolutely amazing only needs a non flavoured tonic we used fentimans original so does not tarnish the gin

I love the Pastis from these guys, but the gin just doesn't quite have the same impact. Compared to the other gins in my collection - which there are a lot (50+) it is just lacking in some respects, not as smooth as some other craft gins and the flavour isn't quite there for me. Not bad for a G&T and the bottle looks nice, but not good enough for a martini.

a beautiful Gin especially mixed with Fevertree Tonic the after taste stays on your tongue and it's a fabulous taste you won't forget or want to. The aroma is heavenly you must smell it before you pour in the tonic.

This is by far and away one of the best Gins I have had the pleasure of tasting
21st August 2015
This is a delicious gin but you cannot drink it with ordinary tonic! I would recommend Fevertree tonic and a rose petal garnish to appreciate it at it's best!

I have the advent calendar and today I've been treated to Tarquin! Very nice gin. Only on day 4, and with 20 more to try, so don't feel I can rate higher than an 8!

I wanted to love this gin. Coming from a tiny distiller in Cornwall from a guy who obviously has a passion or it. It's smooth with a hint of citrus but to be honest thats it. To justify its premium price it has to offer something different and I'm afraid it doesn't. Give me a rangpur or Ophir for something genuinely different for less money.

This is a nice Gin...But there are many NICE Gin's for less money than this. I was expecting something special and therefore disappointed. It does not do what it says on the tin. No hints of violet to be seen. Its fine to mix but will not be going anywhere near my Martini. If you want something special get a bottle of Dr. J's Gin....

A wonderful clean smell and taste with delicate after tones of violets. Too gorgeous for tonic!
6th August 2014
Deliciously smooth, this gin is sublime simply on its own, on the rocks. Quality tonic optional and very refreshing.

I tried this in Hong Kong. Great to see great gin when abroad...
12th June 2014

Full of Flavours, Never new Gin could taste good neat before this one>

Fresh and crisp, with a nicely rounded flavour of juniper, pine, orange blossom and a hint of violets. Makes an excellent martini and a great G&T. Highly recommended.
