Distilled and bottled in Lymington, Hampshire
Beachcomber Gin was founded in May 2017 by Kaz who is also the diistiller. Beachcomber is a small craft distillery located in Lymington on the UK’s picturesque South Coast. It is handcrafted, distilled and bottled in small batches yielding an exclusive taste. The company's first gin, ‘Southern Sweet Gin’ was launched in March 2018.
Kaz left her previous job with a dream and decided to have a complete change of direction and created Beachcomber Gin out of pleasure in the hope enjoying a new and interesting career and to bring pleasure to Gin and non-gin drinkers alike.
Beachcomber has a silky sweet taste which coats your mouth, it runs smoothly down the throat without leaving any afterburn. It has gentle citrus notes from a fine selection of 10 botanicals which include sweet orange peel, lemon peel, fresh lime zest and Kaffir lime leaves.
The bottle was designed personally with the beach in mind. On the front the design replicates a piece of driftwood found whilst beachcombing in Thailand last year. The crab is to add fun and character to the bottle. The great Beachcomber customers have kindly named him 'Sheldon'. The bottom of the bottle is screen printed in yellow to depict the sand and if you look carefully you will see small footprints around the bottom. The bottle has no paper label so is completely recyclable and is finished off with a cork which is biodegradable.
We recommend that it is served simply on it’s own over a load of ice and a slice of Orange zest.
Not forgetting the classic G & T, serve it with a with Fever Tree Indian or Mediterranean Tonic & a slice of orange zest and a couple of pink peppercorn
If you prefer more of a cocktail or a desert why not try it over a scoop of orange or lemon Sorbet which really enhances the flavours. Add a scoop of sorbet of your choice and pour over a measure of Beachcomber Gin for the perfect dessert. Add a scoop of your chosen sorbet, add a measure of Beachcomber Gin and a splash of lemonade, give it a stir for a perfect and refreshing drink.
