Papillon Gin - Dartmoor (3 sizes)
This variant is currently sold out
*Multi Award Winning*
Our Dartmoor take on a London Dry gin.
Distilled with 17 botanicals including Dartmoor flavours of fresh gorse flowers picked on the moor, rowan and hawthorn berries, chamomile and Devon violets grown for us by a local friend.
Named Papillon for the Pearl Bordered Fritillary, an endangered Dartmoor butterfly that feeds on wild violets.
Taste: Complex, full flavour. Fresh lemon and lime peel give it a citrus start, cardamom and English coriander for warm spice notes, and gorse, chamomile and violets for a floral finish.
Serve: We would recommend a double measure, over ice, with a premium tonic water and a small slice of lemon or lime peel.
Brainchild of a husband and wife duo based in Moretonhampstead, Dartmoor, Papillon is so named in honour of the endangered Pearl Bordered Fritillary which feeds on the local violets. Indeed, 1% from every bottle sold is donated to the Butterfly Conservation project to help ensure our English wildlife is well maintained. A very recent newcomer, and currently the only gin to actually be distilled on the moor, this is a very delicate, floral and easy-to-drink gin.
BOTANICALS: Citrus-led, with chamomile, rowanberries, gorse and violets
FLAVOURS: A lively citrus start, with more subtle floral, fruity and herbal undertones. Engaging, so don't overpower it with a strong-flavoured tonic
