On Friday 1st February 2019, we’re partnering with Salcombe Gin to bring you a delectable feast created by Head Chef Scott Paton, with each course paired with a gin-based cocktail.
Salcombe Gin creates exceptional, multi-award-winning gin at its waterside distillery in the stunning coastal town of Salcombe, South Devon.
In preparation for this sumptuous February evening of fine food and drink, Head Chef Scott recently spent the afternoon at the Salcombe Gin School where he dabbled in some distillation, concocting two of his own unique gin recipes which will be used for the evening’s menu.
The afternoon began with a guided tour of the distillery and a run through of the art of distillation. It was then over to the Gin School laboratory to get the magic creations underway on one of the beautiful mini-copper pot stills.
Scott carefully selected the botanicals and ingredients for the recipes, one with a nutty, coffee base which will be used for the post-dinner digestif and the other with a citrusy flavour, to go into his dessert for evening, the “Rutaceae” ruby grapefruit mousse and gin sorbet.
