Colwith Farm Distillery is founded upon five generations of farming history.
The idea to build the region's first plough to bottle distillery was developed by brothers Steve & Chris in 2010. Producing premium spirits represented the perfect way to add value to the crops produced on Colwith Farm.
History - Stafford Dustow (as in Stafford's Gin) moved his family to Colwith Farm, near Lanlivery in 1904. Five generations of the family have passionately farmed the soils ever since. It was during World War II when the family started growing potatoes to feed the nation. This tradition has remained and potatoes form the base of the family's first ever premium spirits - Aval Dor Vodka and Stafford's Gin.
At present the father & son team of Mike & Chris (pictured to the left in red & grey) are responsible for growing the delicious potatoes that are transformed into delicious vodka & gin spirits. They also grow a range of cereals which will form the base of a Cornish whiskey.
Steve (pictured in black) looks after the distillery, whilst Clive (pictured in blue), now in his 80's, still keeps an eye on general proceedings and tends to the animals.
