The Tresco Abbey Garden Gin (Tresco/St Agnes)
Crafted by Westward Farm, St Agnes, this is our exclusive Tresco Gin, distilled with the aromatic flavour of the South African confetti bush that grows in profusion in the terraces of our world-famous garden. It is this unusual and highly aromatic botanical – combined with grains of paradise, kaffir lime and the essential gin botanicals – that gives this unique gin its quite exceptional taste.
£32 (35cl) / £52 (70cl)
Oak-Aged Tresco Abbey Garden Gin
A seasonal twist on the classic, we have a barrel's worth of our limited edition Oak-Aged Abbey Garden Gin available. This batch has been rested in an oak barrel previously housing tawny port, resulting in a ruby-tinted, warmed-up version of our popular Abbey Garden Gin.
SC Dogs Tresco Honey Spiced Rum - The Spirit of Bruce Christopher
Distilled on the islands and made using rare honey from Tresco bees, this very special spiced rum is distilled by SC Dogs over on St. Martin’s. Not only does this super smooth rum hero our homegrown honey, but it also pays tribute to the memory of Tresco legend Bruce Christopher.
Tarquin's Hell Bay Gin (Bryher/Cornwall)
OK, so this one isn't quite crafted on Scilly (it's distilled overseas in Cornwall by Tarquins). The heart of this gin is very much of the islands; inspired by the wild and pristine coastline of Bryher's Hell Bay and contains locally foraged Cornish seashore botanicals including Kombu and Red Dulse seaweed.
Westward Farm Gin (St Agnes)
Distilled by the Hicks family on the tiny island of St Agnes, Westward Farm Gin brings together some of the finest botanicals from around the island and around the world, producing just 28 bottles at a time. Take your pick from:
- Scilly Gin: A fresh vibrant gin with citrus, juniper and peppery notes that is perfect with a top-quality tonic or in a cocktail
- Rose Geranium Gin: Grown and distilled on the island, the rose geranium lends a warm floral note. Serve straight up with a wedge of lime, on the rocks
- Wild Wingletang Gin: St Agnes' Wingletang Downs are named after the 'Whins' of gorse and 'Tangs' of kelp that are found there. Green, nutty notes come through from the gorse blending perfectly with the spiciness of our other botanicals
- 28 Miles Orange & Honey Gin: A constantly evolving seasonal gin that showcases the botanicals growing throughout the year
- Chamomile & Elderberry Gin: Chamomile brings a lovely sweetness to this gin that sits wonderfully with the deep, dark berry flavour of elderberry
NEW: SC Dogs The Spirit of John Nance - White Rum (St Martin's)
It’s a hundred nautical miles from the Isles of Scilly to the coast of France, across the unforgiving Atlantic swell. Our Great Great Grandfather John Nance used to row there and back in the family pilot gig to bring cargoes of contraband rum and brandy back to the Isles of Scilly.
Today, at the first and only distillery on St. Martins, we’ve distilled that indomitable spirit into SC Dogs White Rum. Handcrafted in small batches and bottled on our farm, SC Dogs White Rum is a delicately balanced, silky smooth premium rum with a warm, rounded finish and a tang of the sea.
Each bottle is dedicated to the history of one of our own sea dogs. Here’s to John Nance (1797-1881) - farmer, rum smuggler and SC Dog.
£34 (35cl) / £49 (70cl)
NEW: SC Dogs The Spirit of Capt'n Stevens - Vodka (St Martin's)
Nearly a century ago Capt’n Stevens was born into the largest farming and fishing family on St. Martins, Isles of Scilly. Music and laughter followed Capt’n wherever he went. His sea shanties helped the winning gig Dolphin keep stroke. And after he married a Penzance girl and moved there Capt’n carried on singing, in the famous Mousehole Male Voice Choir.
Today, at the first and only distillery on St. Martins, we’ve distilled that cheerful spirit into SC Dogs Vodka. Crafted in small batches using a double distillation process and bottled on our farm, SC Dogs Vodka is an authentically pure, clean spirit with a tang of the sea.
Each bottle is dedicated to the history of one of our own sea dogs. Here’s to Capt’n Stevens (1922-1996) - farmer, fisherman, singer and SC Dog.
