skylark distillery (lantic gin)

Founded by Alex Palmer-Samborne, Skylark Distillery began their journey with a two litre still and their flagship product, Lantic Gin. After much research and trial and error, Alex decided on the final recipe; one made with 9 traditional gin botanicals and 6 which were locally foraged in Cornwall. The production was then stepped up from a single bottle per batch to 150 bottles.

The name for the gin is based on a cove renowned for its smuggling history, and where a number of the botanicals are foraged.

the process

Lantic Gin is created with the traditional 'steep-and-boil' method, the same in which London Dry Gins are created. After parting down an English neutral grain spirit with Cornish spring water, the 9 traditional botanicals are placed into the liquid to steep overnight. The following day the 6 Cornish botanicals are added, and then distillation begins.
