Papillon is an award-winning distillery based within the Dartmoor National Park. The business is named after the French word for butterfly and is named as such to bring attention to endangered Dartmoor butterflies. The company donates financially and through volunteering, to a local Butterfly Conservation project that helps protect this species.
