Internationally acclaimed Salcombe Gin continues its series of Gin & Gastronomy dining experiences in 2019, celebrating the versatility of its collection of award-winning gins with events taking place at Boringdon Hall on Friday 1st February and Salcombe Harbour Hotel on Friday 1st March.
Commenting on the Gin & Gastronomy series, Salcombe Gin co-founder, Angus Lugsdin says: “We’re delighted to collaborate with Boringdon Hall and Salcombe Harbour Hotel; they’re the perfect fine dining venues for our exclusive Gin & Gastronomy experiences. Both chefs Scott and Jamie have created remarkable menus taking inspiration from our flagship ‘Start Point’ gin. We’re excited to share some exciting new cocktails with the diners which will complement the delicious flavours of each course, with a few surprises along the way!”
Indulge in an evening of fine dining at Boringdon Hall, a luxurious five-star Elizabethan manor house hotel, on Friday 1st February at 7pm. Boringdon Hall’s head chef Scott Paton has designed an exquisite five-course feast, each course paired with an exceptional Salcombe Gin cocktail.
Scott says: “As ever it’s such an honour to partner with likeminded, passionate, local artisans such as the guys at Salcombe Gin, we’re really proud to be hosting this tasting event with them as we hope to bring a true spectacle of what Devon has to offer.”
Salcombe Harbour Hotel was featured among Sunday Times Travel’s Ultimate 100 British Hotels. On 1st March at 7.30pm Salcombe Harbour Hotel, which enjoys the most prestigious of locations in this beautiful coastal town will host the following Gin & Gastronomy evening at their desirable destination restaurant.
Salcombe Gin is the inspiration behind chef Jamie Gulliford’s menu and will prove itself the perfect partner to seafood from the Salcombe Estuary, as well as other local fare.
Jamie Gulliford comments: “Gin is a relatively new player in high-end cuisine, but chefs are already beginning to see what a useful and versatile ingredient it can be. What I love about it is that even a few drops can add flavour and impact, both to sweet and savoury dishes. As gin is such a complex blend of citrus, spices and botanicals, it adds sophistication - you could almost say a touch of mystery - to everything it touches.”

Launched in 2016, Salcombe Gin was born out of a love of gin and a dream to produce the finest white spirit in the world within one of the most stunning coastal towns. Co-founders Angus Lugsdin and Howard Davies met over 20 years ago working as sailing instructors at the Island Cruising Club in Salcombe. Inspired by the coastal vitality of Salcombe and its shipbuilding heritage for exotic trading routes, Angus and Howard create exceptional gins at their waterside distillery on Island Street, Salcombe; one of the world’s only distilleries directly accessible by boat.
