Papillon The Admiral Gin - Dartmoor (3 sizes)
This variant is currently sold out
Our Dartmoor take on a Navy Strength gin.
We create our award winning gins in small batches using a copper still at our distillery in Moretonhampstead, within the stunning environment of Dartmoor National Park.
As well as traditional gin botanicals we use ‘Dartmoor flavours’; fresh gorse flowers from the moor, rowan and hawthorn berries, chamomile, nettles, navelwort and Devon violets.
Each batch is made with fresh spring water from a nearby hill farm where Pearl Bordered Fritillaries frequent. Papillon is named after this species, a threatened Dartmoor butterfly that feeds on wild violets. We donate 1% from every bottle sold to a local Butterfly Conservation project that protects this species.
Alongside a keen interest in conservation, we try to keep our business and products as environmentally sensitive as possible.
We think our gins are best enjoyed on a summer’s evening, sat on a granite tor as the sun goes down.
Nectar for both the gin drinker and the butterfly!
Papillon The Admiral is distilled with 18 botanicals including Dartmoor flavours of fresh gorse flowers picked on the moor, rowan and hawthorn berries, nettles and navelwort.
Named for the Red Admiral butterfly, a regular garden visitor on Dartmoor that feeds on nettles.
Taste: Smooth, sophisticated flavour. Fresh lemon and lime peel and flesh give it a citrus start, nutmeg and cardamom give subtle spice notes, gorse and chamomile add a floral touch, and the nettles and navelwort provide a clean finish.
Serve: We would recommend a single measure, over ice, with a premium tonic water and a small slice of lemon or lime peel.
Salute the Admiral
