In The Spirit Of The Season

With some exciting new additions to an already fabulous collection, Rock Distillery is starting summer off with a bang.

The season is really kicking in for Rock Distillery, with it’s latest shop in Padstow now complete in its refurbishment and open for business. Padstow is a fantastic place to shop being full of independent shops, all uniquely friendly and the Rock Distillery staff love working there.

To celebrate the opening of the Padstow shop, the team have landed two fabulous new gins: Sublime Lime with a hint of mint which makes an amazing gin-based mojito, and the Almond Air, a really delicate gin that is so smooth it can be sipped neat, whilst also amazing with a light tonic, still delivering that wonderful lingering almond taste.

“Last year we introduced some new, truly Cornish Spirits for our Tintagel shop,” says Angie, co-owner with husband George, “and they’ve been so popular that we now stock them in Bude, Wadebridge and Padstow.”

It all started with the Sir Galahad gin, Rock Distillery’s Classic Rock gin. “To go with this,” Angie continues, “we produced Lancelot of the Bluewater, our Blue Angel Rock gin. Then Pendragon Pink, our Pink Rock gin. Finally, Merlin’s Magic Marmalade, our Orange Sunset gin.”

In keeping with these, the team designed a range of rums to fit the Camelot theme, the next offering was Holy Grail, the dark spiced pineapple rum, followed by Camelot Coconut Paradise, the Rock coconut rum. Next came the Sir Percival Plum, the amazing Rock Perfect Plum rum, and finally, the Vanilla Knights, Rock Distillery’s Vanilla Rum.

“Alongside this,” Angie explains, “we developed a series of Cornish folklore gins, starting with The Dragon on the Mount, which contains our Rock Blue Angel gin, followed by the Mermaid of Zennor, which contains Rock Mellow Yellow gin. Next came the Spaniards and the Obby Oss, containing our Rock Cherry Kiss gin, and finally we made St. Petroc the Serpent and the Dragon, which contains our Rock Classic Gin. We are currently working on some new liqueurs to join our growing range of colourful and exotic Cornish Spirits, so watch this space.”
