Based on an original 1929 recipe, Trevethan Handcrafted Cornish Gin has kept the spirit of the Jazz age alive in this bold, multifaceted gin.
Trevethan are a true craft distiller. Each batch is made in a traditional Copper-Alembic still to the exact same recipe created by Norman Trevethan back in the late 1920s. Everything is done by hand, from the charging of the still to the measuring of the botanicals and right the way through to the filling and labelling of the bottles. The initial sense of Trevethan is of something light and floral but this quickly deepens into a boisterously, rounded orange spice. An incredible, bold gin!
Tried this at a friends tasting party,
Good quality Gin but no better than Tarquin Cornish and more expensive.
DELIGHTED TO SEE THE RISE AND RISE OF CRAFT GINS AS OPPOSED TO THE MASS PRODUCERS. HAVING SAMPLED MOST (AND NONE OF THEM ARE AT ALL BAD) I WOULD HAVE TO SAY THIS IS THE BEST. BOUGHT ONE ON A RECOMMENDATION FROM A FRIEND AND WAS BLOWN AWAY WITH THE TASTE. IT IS PACKAGED SO WELL AND HAS SUCH A GOOD STORY ATTACHED TO ITS ORIGIN THAT IT HAS MADE A GREAT GIFT FOR RELATIVES AS WELL. EXCELLENT.
I had this at a Gin Festival last year and wasn't blown away by it but I had it again recently in the most recent Gin Explorer box and the garnish suggestion is with with rosemary and orange, not cloves, and it make a very big difference. I think it's very different to Tarquins, if you like St George Terroir and enjoy the piney flavour supported by the rosemary garnish then you might enjoy Trevethan with rosemary and orange. I was really disappointed to get to the end of my 50ml sample and not have another one to pour, I think this is delicious gin but it does need the right garnishing to really enjoy it.
