Padstow Distilling

    About Padstow Distilling

    Compelled by the beauty that surrounds us, Padstow Distilling has crafted a selection of award-winning spirits to bring those who drink them straight to the place that we all love. A true plough-to-bottle spirit with a taste of Padstow in every sip.

    Based in Cornwall, at the South West tip of the UK. Padstow is a popular tourist destination for a reason: the dramatic coastline, turquoise ocean and abundance of wild flora and fauna combined with a rich history, making this an enthralling and spectacularly beautiful place to live, work and visit.

    Founder David McWilliam has a wealth of knowledge in the drinks industry and an infectious passion for the discovery of new flavours. As Padstow Wine Company they made their first gin in 2019 before developing their original barley-based recipes, now made at Padstow Distillery.

    I wanted to create a reflection of the beauty that surrounds us, a drink that when you taste it, takes you back instantly to this gorgeous place.

    About the spirit

    THE GIN Padstow Gin is made from GNS (grain-based neutral spirit), not bought-in, but from 100% finest local Cornish barley, grown at Tregirls farm in Padstow. The barley fields overlook the Camel Estuary above the beach at St George’s Well, swept daily with the ocean breeze.

    DOUBLE GOLD WINNER! Navy Padstow Gin won DOUBLE GOLD at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2022. Not only that but the distillery also scooped up Gold for Padstow Rose Gin and Silver for our Original Gin and Vodka.

    THE BOTANICALS Mixing tradition with its beautiful location, juniper, citrus and pepper are blended with local Alexanders, an ancient coastal plant full of green, iodine freshness. It is these that David still forages in spring from the cliffs above the beach on the western side of the estuary, giving the Original and Navy Strength gins their refreshing, coastal flavour.
