Dr Squid Gin


Squid ink is so powerful that just a bit is needed to give a gin its distinctive colour and flavour. Vanilla was added to compliment the sea buckthorn, which provides a tart and very refreshing finish. Dr Squid pours black and turns pink when mixed with tonic.

Shake can well prior to serving


The Shack

Serve with a premium tonic, ice, and a slice of orange or lemon. It also goes well with crushed ice and ginger beer.

This distillery was born when a group of friends and experienced bar tenders from central London decided to pool their knowledge, move to the Southwest and start a distillery. Having all gained extensive experience in the hospitality industry, and drinks world, they have managed to successfully produce numerous gins and spirits, and the team at Pocketful of stones continues to expand!
