What do you get the gin fan who has tried everything? A gin they've probably never tried before. Tarquin's Single Estate Cornish Tea Gin is exclusive to Gin Festival, so, unless they've been to one of our events, they won't have tried this unusual gin. And that's a shame because this really is something special. Made with tea from the Tregothnan estate, which, thanks to a subtropical micro-climate, is the only place in the UK where tea is grown commercially. The aromatic tea, Camelia sinensis, is teamed with the key botanicals of kaffir lime, ginger, bee pollen and, of course, juniper to produce a sweet, delicate gin with a long smoky finish.
