Gin and Jazz Afternoon
22 June 2018
On Sunday 8th July Thurlestone Hotel will be holding their annual Gin and Jazz Afternoon. The main sponsor of the event is local Salcombe Gin, however they will have up to 14 other gins available on the bar for you to try. Below you will find more information on just some of the gins they will have and the best Fever Tree Tonic to mix them with.
Salcombe Gin is is handcrafted on a beautiful 450l copper pot still at their own distillery in Salcombe. Each batch is distilled with an unrivalled passion, care and attention to detail then blended together with Dartmoor water to produce an exceptional gin.
Salcombe Gin Start Point has the perfect balance of aromas and flavours FROM the heady, earthy and resinous pine notes of the finest Macedonian juniper, selected for their high Limonene content, to the warming spiced citrus notes from English coriander seeds and fresh citrus peels, hand peeled by Salcombe Gin prior to distillation.
Add a pink grapefruit, Ice and Fever Tree Indian Tonic water to your Salcombe Gin for the perfect combination.
Devon Distillery Gin
After moving into a rustic barn on a rural farmstead in South Devon at the start of 2012, founder Cosmo Caddy set up a micro-distillery aptly named Devon Distillery, to produce the UK’s first and only version of grappa. Dappa has gone from strength to strength winning several awards including IWSC silver outstanding award, Two Star Great Taste award, and a Gold Medal at the Food Drink Devon Awards.
When Cosmo found out his sister was getting married he wanted to make something unique for her wedding and so the concept of Still on the Move was born. ‘Ginny’ is a 1973 VW T2 Flat Bed Truck with a mobile Gin Still called ‘Prosperity’ on board. ‘Ginny’ and the Still on the Move team are available to hire to make your own gin, to your own recipe, all labelled up to the design of your choice. A gin heaven for the creative gin drinkers out there!
As making gin took off, occasionally the Distillery would have some left over after a run. Despite their best attempts the team weren’t able to drink it all! Not liking waste and wanting to find a good way to use it up Kate set about making Devon Distillery’s first batch of SloeD Gin. Unique to Devon Distillery SloeD Gin is not oversweet and retains a good degree of ‘Ginnyness’ whilst savouring a depth of Sloe.
Not wanting to waste a drop, Devon Distillery set about finding new ways to use their raw spirit and have developed Devoncello, a limoncello type liqueur that bonds the delicious zesty organic lemon flavour and Dappa Spirit.
On the 8th July there will Devon Distillery Apple and Elderflower Gin pair it with Elderflower tonic for wonderful taste combination.
