A lovely family run business with a distillery that overlooks the famous Mounts Bay. We love their honey spiced rum made with locally harvested seaweed and honey. Even better, they don't use plastic in any of their packaging, they donate shares of their profits to plastic free seas charities and they plant a tree for every order.
In 1925 bottles of alcohol were discovered hidden inside the walls of this distillery owners cottage at Bollowal near Cape Cornwall. The legend goes that these bottles were smuggled into Cornwall and hidden many years before to avoid high government taxes. Now Cape Cornwall Rum has taken that legend and created a range of rums - perfect for your festive cocktails!
What could be more Cornish than a gin distilled in Cornwall and made using Cornish clotted cream! First distilled in a bakery in Tintagel, this gin uses clotted cream to amplify the botanicals and create a rich texture. Makes the perfect classic martini.
Everyone knows Healey's for their cider, and especially the famous Rattler cider! But did you know they also make a Cornish single malt whiskey? It has spice, honey and barley notes and make a thoughtful gift.
Sparkling wine, still wine and even a brandy! This vineyard on the sunny south facing slopes near St Ewe produces Cornish wines from Cornish vines in an eco-friendly way. All the wine is produced and bottled at the winery using hand operated or water powered machinery. The only electricity they use for the process is from their solar panels!
Celebrate the New Year in style with some Cornish bubbly! From their classic Black Ewe White Sparkling through to their award winning Blanc de Noir, these beautiful bubbles bring a touch of local luxury to your dining table.
