Dartmoor’s take on a London Dry gin. Papillon gin is a complex, full flavoured gin that marries classic botanicals with gorse, hawthorn, rowanberries, chamomile and Devon violets. Distilled in small batches from pure Dartmoor spring water. The name Papillon comes from the Pearl Bordered Fritillary, an endangered Dartmoor butterfly that feeds on wild violets. 1% of every bottle sold is donated to The Butterfly Conservation project. (How brilliant!)

Serve: We would recommend a double measure, over ice, with a premium tonic water and a small slice of lemon or lime peel.

Creators behind Papillon Gin

Papillon Gin is the first of its kind, made within the Dartmoor National Park. Papillon was created by the brilliant Clare + Adam, who grew up on Dartmoor and enjoy sharing its special qualities through their small-batch gin. The distillery is based in Moretonhampstead, just 20 miles from us at Alder. Together they love to explore Dartmoor, on foot or bike, and are always keen for an adventure, accompanied by a Papillon Gin and Tonic of course.
