Colwith Farm Distillery is Cornwall's first plough to bottle distillery.
Whereas most craft distilleries buy in mass produced ethanol and carry out a secondary distillation, at Colwith Farm Distillery, everything is lovingly produced from scratch - on a single estate. In terms of provenance, authenticity and product quality, put simply - it doesn't get any better.
The crops that are transformed into premium spirits are grown within a few miles of the distillery. Thereafter, every step of the production process is delicately carried out in-house. From preparing the wash, fermenting the wines, distilling, rectifying and finally bottling. Even the water used in the production process rises from an aquifer situated beneath the distillery. Admittedly it is much more difficult, time consuming and indeed costly to produce spirits this way - but we truly believe it's worth it.
Due to the variety of crops being grown on Colwith Farm, and the complexity of the equipment in the distillery, a plethora of premium spirits can be lovingly crafted from one site. Aval Dor (Cornish for potato) Vodka is crafted from King Edward potatoes. Stafford's Gin is made by infusing a blend of botanicals from Colwith Farm and further afield with Aval Dor Vodka. Fowey River Gin is distilled from Haye Farm's world's oldest cider. And our whiskey project - well you'll just have to come and see us to find out ...
