Sidmouth Gin – in the very heart of Sidmouth town

A small family-run distillery started in 2017 to make hand-crafted batch gins on ‘Verity’ our 100-litre pot still. Our botanicals, sourced fresh from the beach and the surrounding Sid Valley area, make Sidmouth Gin a true taste of Sidmouth.

Starting in 2017 with Seashore, a Silver award-winning gin, combining Sugar Kelp hand-harvested from the pristine Sidmouth beaches under a licence from the Crown Estate and consent from Natural England.

Sidmouth Gin - Sea Truffle

What a little gem of a tearoom /store. This is my second visit and coming all the way from London. The gentleman that owns this place goes out of his way to explain what he does and shows which Gins he makes as Sidmouth Gins to have with what mixers. Will continue to visit just to buy his wonderful seaweed Gin.

Sidmouth Gin scoops gold award

Congratula-gins are in order for one Sidmouth business as it now boasts two award winning liquors.

John Hammond won gold for his sea truffle Sidmouth Gin at the Food and Drink Devon Awards on Monday (October 7). It comes a year after the business won its first ever award for its Seashore gin variety, which scooped silver from Taste of the West.

Sidmouth Gin - a winner at the Food Drink Devon Awards 2019

Mr Hammond, who runs The Dairy Shop, in Church Street, teamed up with Ebbtides Tony Coulson to use sea truffle gathered from the seafront to infuse with the alcohol.

Mr Hammond said: “When we got the silver award last year it was our first year and to get silver it says we have a gin that’s worthwhile.”

Now we have gold for the sea truffle, we have two award-winning gins now and we are doing it right when it comes to our flavours.”

“It’s really encouraging. We want people to talk about our gin.”

“It’s a real taste of Sidmouth, you can get it from our beaches. We are really proud of it.”

The business has now branched out into rum and vodka.

The Dairy Shop

Great Gin Night. We went along to the new Gin Nights on Saturday at this lovely, cosy cafe in the centre of Sidmouth. They serve their own distilled Sidmouth Gins with some unique flavour combinations. Their Sea Shore gin made with seaweed harvested from the local beach was of particular note. Crisp and refreshing with pleasant subtle undertones, it was delicious served with straight tonic and a slice of lime. Next, we tried the Rhubarb gin, which when combined with a ginger-infused tonic was sharp, bold and left me wanting another glass.
This café is a family-run affair utilising all local produce and also sells many unusual and quirky preservesand products. The rhubarb mead was also a little gem. The staff were so friendly, welcoming and took the time to chat about the gins and their products.
This café is well worth going to when visiting Sidmouth. I will be returning.
