Deck Chair Gin was born at the New Quay Inn in Brixham on the English Riviera. Business partners Matt and Andy bought the harbourside Grade 2 listed Free House in 2013 and spent a year renovating the property before opening their doors to the public in November 2014.
As lovers of Real Ale and Gin, and with an urge to become more creative, an idea developed to evolve the business into either a brew pub or distillery. After much head scratching and research Devon Coast Distillery emerged and the hard work began.
Deck Chair Gin is inspired by the coastal location and the sparkling waters of the English Riviera; thus a refreshing citrus gin was developed ideal for those hot summer days by the seaside. The name ‘Deck Chair Gin’ was an attempt to pay homage to the 1920s hay day of traditional holiday resorts such a Torquay and Paignton jewels of the ‘English Riviera’.
