Distillery Tours


Calling all Tarquin's Cornish Gin fans - our humble Distillery, nestled on a windswept hilltop overlooking the Wild Cornish Coast is now open for you all to visit...

We're beyond excited to be able to open our Distillery doors and warmly welcome you on an intimate behind-the-scenes tour to see where our craft and passion come alive.

There's nothing that we at Team Tarquin love more than introducing both old and new-found friends to our four leading Copper Ladies; Tamara, Senara, Ferrara and Tressa.

We'll tell you the inspiring story of how we first began; educate you about the unique botanicals we use and the particular characteristics they each bring to the mix; explain the special processes behind our production; and finally take you on a delicious tasting flight through our core gin range.

So, come join us on the ultimate Cornish Gin experience as we guide you around Tarquin's HQ.

Tarquin's Distillery Tour has been awarded the prestigious 2022 Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Award, putting our distillery tour in the top 1% of all attractions worldwide!
