The Salcombe Gin Voyager Series is a range of limited edition gins developed in collaboration with a world-renowned chef or iconic winemaker to reflect their individual personality or style. Bringing together a combined expertise in balancing and perfecting flavours and aromas whilst paying homage to the famous Salcombe Fruiters these are exceptional handcrafted gins which reawaken a bygone era of trade and adventure taking your senses on a Voyage of Discovery!
Named after Phantom, a Salcombe Fruiter built in Salcombe in 1867, and inspired by her cargo of the finest fruits, spices and wines, this cask finished gin has been developed in collaboration with the iconic Château Climens, one of the world's finest producers of Sauternes wine. Distilled with 16 botanicals, seven of which were selected from the Château Climens’ estate and aged for 8 months in five casks that previously held their 2015 and 2016 vintages. ‘Phantom’ tells the story of the vineyard, the winemaker, the cask, the distiller, and the concept of terroir, taking you on a journey to an unhurried world that requires time, precision, patience and craftsmanship to be expertly pursued in the name of taste.
Limited to 3,500 bottles, ‘Phantom’ is presented in a stunning white glass bottle featuring an embossed outline of the iconic gin pennant and a bespoke debossed copper stopper commissioned for the series. Its presentation box has beautiful copper detailing and contains a recipe card for the ‘Terroir’ cocktail created by Salcombe's team of mixologists.
‘Phantom’ was created to mimic the aromas and flavours of the exceptional 1er Cru Sauternes wines produced by Château Climens. This rich, sophisticated and decadent cask finished gin has notes of honeyed peaches, rose petals, cypress, lavender and orange blossom on the nose. Notes of apricots, jasmine, toasted oak, spices and caramelised orange peel follow on the palate. There is a fresh green savoury hint from the nettle and fennel making it light but enhancing the depth of flavour. The finish is acacia honey and cantaloupe melon, balanced with the minerality of fresh orange peel pith.
