WHO WE ARE
New London Light is a bold collection of non-alcoholic spirits & aperitifs.
New London Light is a bold collection of contemporary non-alcoholic spirits and aperitifs, crafted by our team of expert distillers who challenge the process and bring innovative flavour combinations into a new era of taste without alcohol.
Harnessing our expertise in making world-class spirits, each of our explorations into the non-alcoholic world is led by taste and inspired by adventure.
We handsource our botanicals
Using our head distiller Jason’s horticultural and foraging knowledge, our team handsource a selection of botanicals and use as many local and foraged botanicals as possible, including Sugar Kelp, picked just after high tide a stone’s throw from our distillery.
We use alcohol to extract flavour
To create a base for each of our non-alcoholic spirits and aperitifs, first we make a ‘botanical steep’ by soaking a selection of botanicals in 40% ABV grain spirit. The use of alcohol to extract and carry flavour is an important part of the process.
We remove the alcohol using a rotary vacuum still
Using a combination of craft and innovation, the botanical steep is then distilled in a rotary vacuum still; a process that removes the alcohol without removing the flavour. This process essentially does the opposite of alcoholic spirit distillation.
Our core flavour distillate is made
Once the rotary vacuum still has removed the alcohol, it leaves behind a highly concentrated core flavour distillate, which acts as the backbone for each expression.
Next we carefully blend the distillate with further flavours
Next the core distillate is blended with a carefully balanced selection of 100% natural flavours and distillates and stabilised with the unusual use of kombucha.
EVERY BOTTLE SOLD MAKES OUR OCEANS HEALTHIER
Inspired by the coastal vitality of Salcombe and its ship building heritage, the protection of the oceans is very important to us. The team at Salcombe Distilling Company all share a common desire to help protect and maintain the precious ocean environment that inspires and influences everything we do.
With this at the forefront of our thought process, we have been working on meaningful initiatives to ensure that we minimise our impact on the environment whilst making the most positive contribution we possibly can to improve the health and wellbeing of our oceans.
Our mission is to have a positive impact on the ocean and the life it supports by vigorously reducing our carbon footprint and supporting meaningful initiatives that rewild our oceans and sequester carbon. That’s why we donate 1% of every bottle sold to the Marine Conservation Society to help protect and regenerate precious ocean habitats.
Sharing our passion for quality, adventure, wellbeing and sustainability, our stories invite you to explore our world of lighter living and exceptional taste without compromising the things that matter most. Discover our latest initiatives, unique recipes and more…
