The Latest Gin by Salcombe Distillery Will Pour The Mediterranean Into Your Glass


salcombe rose gin

If you’re after an experience reminiscent of a balmy summer’s evening sat outside on the terrace of your favourite restaurant, then this Salcombe rose gin is what you need in your life.

It can be enjoyed from the beginning to the end of a meal, as an apéritif or digestif, on the beach or by the pool.

In terms of botanicals, fresh peels of lemon and orange are combined with ten further hand sourced botanicals, including lemon verbena, rose petals, orange blossom and pink peppercorns which create a gin that is elegantly soft and smooth.

Rosé Sainte Marie has fragrant notes of fresh lemon peel and herbs from Provence, that are complemented by the natural sweetness of red fruit and the distinctive perfume of white flowers and orange blossom carried on a sea breeze.

On the palate it has fullness and intensity whilst remaining smooth with an endearing and lingering softness to finish.

If you’re wondering what tonic water you should pair this with, you can serve it on its own over ice or with a premium Indian tonic water and a slice of strawberry to accentuate the bouquet of red fruit.

Alternatively try making the Salcombe Rosé Spritz for a little Mediterranean sunshine in your life.
