A classic gin with a coastal twist, distilled in small batches and then gently steeped in butterfly pea flowers to give the signature blue colour. With plenty of juniper, fresh orange and locally grown thyme and a hint of South Devon sea spaghetti.
We have carefully selected 10 botanicals to produce a perfectly balanced juniper led gin with delicious top notes of blood orange, raspberry and sea buckthorn. Once the gin has been distilled, it is then steeped in dehydrated orange peel and raspberries to deliver a really intense flavour sensation.
Clare Edwards, Torquay
“I was Intrigued by the appearance and I couldn’t wait to try Torbay gin when it launched at Easter. It did not disappoint!
The traditional botanicals and sea spaghetti give a distinctive and refreshing taste.
It is simply delicious.
Well done Torbay Gin on creating a fabulous local Gin. Can’t wait to try your next offering ”
Eliot Glover, Dorset
Love Torbay Gin; you can taste in the gin just how passionate these guys are about it and from the ingredients they use in both of their craft gins. Wonderfully balanced! The idea of Christmas tree gin baubles is brilliant!
Mary Bradford, Dartford
“I had my first ever Torbay Gin at The Meadfoot Bay Café whilst I was holidaying in Torquay in September. I liked it so much that I bought a bottle from The Wine Box before we headed home to Dartford and it’s become my new favourite tipple. Congratulations on a wonderful gin”
Julia Southby, The Cimon, Torquay
“We have been stocking the fabulous Torbay Gin at The Cimon since its first batch came across our bar having been hand delivered. Our guests love it and we regularly get comments from them how beautiful the bottle is, to the fun colour change once we add a mixer! Many guests have said how smooth it is and most come back for a second, or a third… or maybe more! A very popular addition to our drinks menu for sure – thanks to James and the team for a great gin and great service”
June K, Ferndown
“I am the daughter of a lady licensee who was very well liked in the bar, lounge and cocktail bar. She drank Gin & Tonic all her life (plenty of it) and died at 89.
I started drinking Gin & Tonic some 30+ years ago and have tried many brands. One of my favourites is TORBAY GIN. Put a measure of TORBAY in a long stemmed glass with very cold tonic (no ice – don’t wish to dilute it) with a slice of lemon ……MMMMMM. Relax and enjoy the moment; nothing quite like it!”
Agatha Veitch, Newton Abbot
My husband and I recently had the pleasure of visiting a charming gin shop in Torquay, and it was an absolute delight! As a gin enthusiast, I was thrilled to discover this hidden gem, and I cannot sing its praises enough.
From the moment I walked through the door, I was greeted with a warm and inviting atmosphere. The staff's knowledge and passion for gin were immediately evident, and they were more than happy to share their expertise and recommendations. I felt like I was in the company of fellow gin lovers, which made the experience even more enjoyable.
International Award Winning
We are very proud that both gins have won a number of awards, both internationally and more locally here in Devon. Our signature blue gin was one of only 6 gins in the world to be awarded a Gold in the IWSC Gin & Tonic category in 2023. Also in 2023 Autantiaco was a winner in the Contemporary Gin Category of the Gin Guide awards. Both gins were awarded Gold in the Taste of the West 2023 Awards.
Our signature blue gin is steeped in butterfly pea flowers after distillation to give it its colour. The colour is 100% natural. When mixed with tonic or lemonade it then turns to this beautiful purple colour.
Locally Sourced Botanicals
We are proud to say we use local botanicals where possible. Our sea spaghetti is foraged from the South Devon Coast, our thyme is grown outside the distillery and our raspberries are grown here in Torbay.
