• Southwestern Distillery

  • We are an independent, family company handcrafting Gin and Pastis in tiny batches (the old-fashioned way) by the coast of north Cornwall.

    At the heart of our process lies a special, flame-fired, copper pot still called Tamara, goddess of the Tamar. Together with a harmonious balance of precision and flair, we are able to produce spirits that are truly exceptional. Tarquin, our founder, pioneer and head distiller is so proud of what we create that he puts his name on every bottle.


    The vision behind our small Cornish distillery is to make great-tasting spirits with integrity. We aim to do this by going back to basics: using traditional techniques, quality ingredients and old-fashioned equipment. We believe the human touch in everything is absolutely crucial for superiority.


    Our copper pot still is fired by flame and judged by eye.

    Our botanicals are selected by sight and feel.

    Our bottles are all individually filled, corked, sealed, labelled, numbered and waxed by hand.

    Our spirits are rigorously tested by nose and taste.
