Tarquin’s Seadog Navy Strength 70cl 57%
Hand crafted on the wild Cornish Coast, the fully-independent, family-run distillery lays claim to 3 250 litre copper stills called Tamara, Senara and Tressa and 1 500 litre still called Ferarra. 11 botanicals from all around the world are added to the stills to be macerated overnight in a neutral grain spirits before finally adding violets in the morning. The Seadog is wonderfully fragrant, well rounded on the nose with the warmth of black pepper. It’s fresh, piney gin, big and spicy with lemon sherbet notes, a touch of eastern spice and a lingering floral complexity.
