Tarquin's gin masterclass

Back to blog

On Wednesday 17 May, to celebrate their 11th birthday, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall have created special pre-dinner cocktail masterclass exclusively to Watergate Bay Hotel guests.

Booking is essential as spaces are limited.


A gin expert from local distillers, Tarquin’s Gin, will be proping up the Fifteen bar to take you through a gin cocktail demonstration creating classic cocktails as well combining more modern flavours and garnishes.

Bursting with fresh citrus notes; piney juniper, sherbety coriander and sweet liquorice on the palette; and floral violets on the finish – Tarquin’s Cornish Dry Gin is a celebration of all thing craft and Cornish. Combined with Fifteen Cornwall’s homemade cordials and tonics, you’ll have the change to create, and sip, something special.

Tarquin’s Gin
Southwestern Distillery is an independent, family run company handcrafting high-end spirits, in tiny batches, on the coast of north Cornwall. Using as traditional methods as possible, Tarquin still heats his 150 litre copper pot still with a direct naked flame (his trusty paella burner ring) and seals the top of the still with bread dough. Each batch produces only 220 bottles per run, which are all filled, labeled, waxed, stamped and signed all by hand.
