Operated by: Southwestern Distillery
Southwestern Distillery was established in 2012 by Founder and Master Distiller, Tarquin Leadbetter, when he was only 23. As a fully-independent, family-run business Southwestern Distillery is Cornwall’s first distillery in over 100 years.
Nestled on a windswept hilltop overlooking the Wild Cornish Coast, Tarquin and his team proudly champion a distilling ethos of the authentically traditional and the progressively modern.
At the heart of the distilling process lie Tarquin’s three 250 litre hand-beaten copper pot stills – Tamara, Senara & Tressa. They‘re all fired by flame and sealed at the joints with bread dough.
The newest addition to the distillery is Ferarra – a state of the art, one-of-a-kind 500 litre copper still.
