Spring showcase

Introducing the superb products and services from some of our favourite Cornish businesses.

As temperatures begin to soar and with summer just around the corner, we can’t wait to start making the most of the weather by getting out and exploring the best that Cornwall has to offer. As a start, we’ve handpicked a superb selection of Cornish products and services from businesses across the Duchy, from cutting-edge gadgets, to award-winning architecture, to some of the best Cornish made tipples you’re likely to find!


Summer’s top tipple

The Wine House Cornwall

Summer is on the horizon and when the days heat up and the evenings get longer there’s nothing quite like sitting back with a glass of something refreshing in hand. “We love filling our ice cube trays with fruit and herbs,” says Wine House owner John McCormick. “They look great and are an easy way to complement your favourite gin.” And when it comes to gin, why not try Wrecking Coast Clotted Cream Gin with a cream tea? It doesn’t matter whether you put your gin in first or your tonic; just be sure to get the jam and cream the right way round!

A tempting tipple

Curio Spirits Company

Added to the award-winning Curio Spirits range is a new gin that takes its creativity from handpicked blueberries grown on the Helford, full of Cornish character. Curio Blueberry is fruity on the nose with a tang of lime – a soothing gin with a pleasing personality and a depth of flavour designed to be sipped neat on ice or with a premium mixer such as Fentimans Rose Lemonade. Why not try the Tom Collins Cocktail? Made with 50ml Curio Blueberry Gin, a 25ml shot of sugar syrup and a 25ml shot of lemon juice, poured in that order with ice, topped with soda, stirred and garnished with a twist of lemon peel.
