Smuggled from Cornwall is a unique collaboration between Cornwall’s oldest cider maker, Haye Farm, and Cornwall’s first plough-to-bottle distillery (and San Francisco World Spirits 2020 Double Gold Winner), Colwith Farm Distillery.
The idea of working together started to germinate when Bill Cole, of Haye Farm, and Steve Dustow of Colwith Farm, shared a stand in the Flower Pavilion at the Royal Cornwall Show in 2015.
Bill and Steve found that they both shared the same passion for history, heritage, provenance and product integrity, and started to discuss how they might work together.
The pivotal conversation took place at Fowey Hall during the summer of 2016 and the resulting unique collaboration was the beginning of a new chapter in their respective farms’ history.
Their original gin, Fowey River Gin, which is still made, has grown into Smuggled from Cornwall Gin – part of their range of artisan, hand-crafted spirits, including Cornish Vodka and Cornish Rum.
