Tarquin’s handcrafted Cornish Gin is delighted to announce the latest addition to its award-winning range of craft gins; Tarquin’s Pink Dry Gin. Created by self-taught Master Distiller Tarquin Leadbetter, his latest gin is a beautifully balanced offering that combines the sweetness of fruit gins with the botanical notes of a traditional dry gin. Distilled with 14 botanicals including fresh peeled rare pink lemons, zesty pink grapefruit and peppery pink peppercorns, creating a refreshing gin bursting with citrus and exotic spice.
Launching in time for World Gin Day, Tarquin’s Pink Dry Gin is the perfect accompaniment to summer celebrations; crafted to be the ultimate crowd-pleaser, whether you prefer a traditional dry gin or have a sweeter palate, simply mix with a light tonic and garnish with lemon or grapefruit.
Founder of Tarquin’s, Tarquin Leadbetter comments: “At Tarquin’s we’re always looking to try new things and test new products – we’re incredibly proud of our award-winning dry gins but love to experiment and innovate on taste. I’ve always been passionate about the distilling process and the endless possibilities it creates. The new pink gin is a carefully crafted balance between our traditional dry gins and more modern fruit-led gins, I love it in a simple mix with light tonic and a slice of lemon.”
Tarquin’s have recently won 3 international gin awards including a double gold at the San Francisco Spirit Awards for Tarquin’s Cornish Dry Gin, his first experiment launched in 2012. Over a decade later, this family-owned distillery continues to establish itself as a leader in craft distilling whilst pushing the boundaries of innovative gin.
