Tarquin's Gin Blackberry & Cornish Wildflower Honey Fruit Gin - 70cl

Blackberry & Cornish Wildflower Honey Fruit Gin - 70cl

When it’s time to create our Tarquin’s British Blackberry Gin they first start the process of distilling their flagship Tarquin’s Cornish Dry Gin as the base. To do this, 11 of the botanicals are added to our stills (with the exception of the violets, British blackberries and Cornish wildflower honey) and left to macerate overnight in a wheat based neutral grain spirit.

In the morning Tarquin’s simply add the missing violets, to complete the botanical recipe, and then it’s time to fire up the stills.

As the stills heat up Tarquin is constantly monitoring the process, nosing and tasting as the distilled spirit as it comes off the still at different temperatures. They collect only the purest ‘heart of the distillation’ (achieved when the still has reached the magic temperature of 78’c), collecting and setting aside the ‘heads’ and ‘tails’ cuts (the first and last parts of the distillation) that don’t make the most selective taste and texture grade.

Post distillation, this ‘hearts cut’ (around 76% abv neat Gin) is lovingly infused with the most brilliant British blackberries they can lay our hands on. They patiently let this infuse until Tarquin feels the balance is just right. Finally we cut the gin with de-mineralized Cornish spring water to bring it down to the desired 38% abv, and then just before bottling we add a touch of Cornish wildflower honey for some rounded sweetness and balance.
