Cornish gin returns after botanicals come back in season

Rock Samphire Gin

Curio Spirits has brought back its gin made with botanicals including seasonal rock samphire from the cliffs of Cornwall.

Made in a small-batch distillery in Mullion on the Lizard Peninsula in south Cornwall, Rock Samphire Gin is made each time the plant, also known as sea fennel, is in season. It adds a distinctive spicy texture to the gin.

Rock Samphire Gin, made with Cornish spring water, is four-times distilled with 15 botanicals including kombu seaweed sourced by The Cornish Seaweed Company, creating a gin that is so smooth and flavoursome that it is recommended for drinking neat with ice.

Curio Spirits was set up by husband-and-wife team William and Rubina Tyler-Street in 2012 to make unique craft spirits, introducing their first in 2014.

Other products include a vodka infused with organic cardamom seeds, distilled four times to create a spicy and citrusy flavour. They also continue to experiment and distil using ingredients to create limited-edition gins.

Rock Samphire Gin will be showcased by Curio Spirits at the Boutique Bar Show today (May 18). Click here for details about attending.
