Foraged gorse flowers from the Atlantic clifftops and fresh orange zest help to deliver the fresh, invigorating and unique aroma, which is then finished off with a touch of liquorice root for colour.  Also add green aniseed and sweet fennel seeds from Turkey, along with star anise from China and liquorice root from Uzbekistan, to create the fragrant backbone...The citrus aromas come from the fresh fruit zests of sweet orange, lemon and grapefruit, from wherever they are in season. We also add angelica root from Poland, orris root from Morocco, green cardamom seeds from Guatemala, juniper berries from Kosovo and cinnamon from Madagascar for a depth of flavour and experience.

The vision behind our small Cornish distillery is to make great-tasting spirits with integrity. We aim to do this by going back to basics: using traditional techniques, quality ingredients and old-fashioned equipment. We believe the human touch in everything is absolutely crucial for superiority. What do we do differently to make our spirits taste better? There are only 300 bottles created in each batch, often it is less. This means we can give the proper care and attention needed to turn every bottle into something really quite brilliant. Our still is fired by flame. The myriad of micro reactions in the pot where the copper meets the fire achieves an incredible level of complexity. We do a one-shot distillation, which means exactly the right blend of botanicals is used in every run to make an entirely finished spirit. Extravagant, but uncompromising. Our copper pot still is fired by flame and judged by eye. Our botanicals are selected by sight and feel. Our bottles are all individually filled, corked, sealed, labelled, numbered and waxed by hand. Our spirits are rigorously tested by the bouquet and palate.
