The Tonquin Limited Edition Tonka Bean & Clementine Gin
Tarquin’s has bottled a limited run of their multi-award-winning Cornish Gin with the addition of tonka bean and clementine. May we proudly introduce a portmanteau-tastic new gin: The Tonquin.
Much-loved by French chefs, tonka beans – harvested from Cumaru trees in South Africa – have been used to add sweetness to the juniper in this gin and lovely vanilla notes. Those traits are beautifully counterbalanced by the flavours of sour cherry, desiccated coconut, mulling spices, rosemary, dark chocolate orange and waxy clementine peel. The Tonquin has oodles of festive flair, but because of understated craftsmanship and unusual nature of the botanical, it also has all-year-round appeal.
Tarquin Leadbetter’s Southwestern Distillery in Cornwall produces craft gin at its finest. Their copper stills sit on a bed of bricks and everything is done by hand including the bottling, labelling, signing and wax dipping. Botanicals are macerated for 12 hours and the stills are heated with a naked flame and sealed with bread dough. This is the kind of back-to-basics that every craft drinker will love. And the flavours coming out of Cornwall’s first distillery in over a century are incredible – but that comes as no surprise when you learn that young Mr Leadbetter was a classically trained Cordon Bleu chef before embarking on his gin journey.
