Dartmoor’s take on a Navy strength gin. The Admiral is distilled with 18 botanicals, including Dartmoor flavours of gorse, hawthorn, rowan berries, chamomile, navelwort and nettles. Distilled in small batches from pure Dartmoor spring water. The name Admiral name comes from the Red Admiral butterfly that visits gardens throughout Dartmoor feeding on nettles. 1% of every bottle sold is donated to The Butterfly Conservation project. (How brilliant!)

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


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.
