Meet the Maker

Come and "Meet the Maker" Angus Lugsdin, co-founder of Salcombe Distilling Co. in the Festival Yurt from 6 - 7 pm on Saturday 20th October.

Salcombe Distilling Co. creates exceptional gin at its waterside distillery in Salcombe, one of the only distilleries in the world directly accessible by boat.

Salcombe Gin is handcrafted on 'Provident', a beautiful 4501 copper pot still which stands proud behind glass doors at the distillery for all to see. Adhering to the 'London Dry' standard and using the traditional 'one shot' distillation method, Salcombe Gin uses 13 carefully selected botanicals including the finest Macedonian Juniper, English Coriander seed and fresh citrus peels of lemon, lime and grapefruit. They then blend the gin with naturally soft Dartmoor water to create an exceptionally smooth and versatile gin.

Come and meet co-founder Angus Lugsdin to hear more on the Salcombe Gin story, learn about the distillation process and sample some Salcombe Gin taster cocktails. 

Tickets cost £7.50 and will be available from the Information Tent on Royal Avenue Gardens.
